Watch giving at Christmas make for a perfect gift, one that will last and be a useful present for many years to come.
Watches were developed in the 17th century from spring-powered clocks, which appeared as early as the 14th century. During most of its history, the watch was a mechanical device, driven by clockwork, powered by winding a mainspring, and keeping time with an oscillating balance wheel.
Now we have a wide range of different styles, mechanical, quartz, digital, and smartwatches.
So if you are stuck for ideas, we have crafted a list of the best watches in New Zealand.
