Rolex GMT-Master II - sideMany of you are probably considering buying a watch anytime soon, either as a gift for a loved one or as reward for yourselves. In response to the many readers of my blog, Watch-Insider.com, asking me what watch I would recommend, here are my personal selections of watches to give as gifts for your loved ones or for yourselves.

A wide range of styles and price ranges is represented in my wish list; the only criteria I used to limit the selection is that they all must have mechanical movements. (All retail prices are listed in euros; U.S. conversion rates may vary, please ask the respective brand for up-to-date prices.)

A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 Lumen

A must-have watch, if you can afford it and if you can find one. The Grand Lange 1 Lumen, in its white gold case, is a limited edition of 200 pieces and desired all over the planet. With its in-house Caliber L095.2, it’s the perfect gift for the Lange collector. Price: 59,000 euros.
