Festive shindigs and alcohol have a natural affinity for one another, but regardless of drink order, the happiest hour will always be the one on your wrist.
An Evening of Wining & Dining
A classy sit-down dinner is perfect for more intimate gatherings. Break bread with your inner circle and keep the conversation flowing with the right wine pairing over a multi-course meal.
Tissot Chemin des Tourelles
It sounds like one of those places that produce great wine, but “Chemin des Tourelles” is, in fact, the street in Le Locle, Switzerland, where the Tissot workshop was established in 1907, and where the brand is still headquartered today. Endowed with the Powermatic 80 movement for up to 80 hours of power reserve, the three-hand model with midnight blue dial serves up a visual appetiser with Roman numerals on a bed of delicious clous de Paris.

In Victory, We Deserve Champagne
Whether one is celebrating the year’s success or counting down to the confetti drop, nothing uplifts the mood like a good toast. Timing is everything, so be sure to get your celebratory speech out of the way before the bubbly runs out.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold Selfwinding
Pink gold scintillates like“diamond dust” on the Royal Oak Frosted Gold. The surface sparkle is the result of tiny light-refracting indentations on the case and bracelet, wrought from a Florentine jewellery hammering technique. The result is a dizzying spectacle that leaves one as buoyant as the bubbles he is downing.

Casual Company Topped with a Frothy Glass of Stout
There are times when one just wants to gather the guys and let it all hang out. Beer is the natural social lubricant for boys’ night, so get your homeboys to each bring a sixer (none of those hipster basement brews please), and all is set for a bromantic evening of sports, poker or video games.
Tudor Black Bay GMT
The Tudor Black Bay GMT is a handsome workhorse that plays just as hard. Equipped with the brand’s first manufacture calibre with multiple time zone function, it keeps track of local time and two additional time zones without breaking a sweat. Despite the serious functionality, the watch excels as a recreational companion with its relaxed burgundy-and-blue “Pepsi” bezel.

Slammin’ Shots for High Spirits
When one has an irrepressible desire to shake that booty and is not taking no for an answer, the nightclub is the place to cure dance fever. Do the lick-shoot-suck with a round of tequila shots – it will prime you up to groove to the pounding beats.
TAG Heuer Carbon Aquaracer
Empowered by the trendy Monaco Bamford, the classic TAG Heuer Aquaracer adopts the same mottled motif for its coolest incarnation yet. The Carbon Aquaracer features forged carbon on the bezel, followed by a printed representation of the material on the dial. Housed in 41mm black PVD titanium with the black textile strap, the watch flaunts a bold monochromatic look that provides graphic impact on the wrist.

Smokes, Single Malts, and Solitude
Those who dread the social obligations of the season can seek shelter in a gentlemen’s club. The fellows from one’s fraternal order will be occupied with clandestine meetings and backroom deals, so sit back and pour yourself a glass of smoky brown while indulging in private pastimes.
Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph
Nothing turns a gentleman-scholar on like fiddling with esoteric mechanisms. The Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph revives the very first “time-writing” device by the eponymous French inventor in the form of twin rotating discs on the dial. To express the new classical codes of the Star collection, the watch is lavishly decorated with elegant guilloché and housed in a dignified case reminiscent of heritage Minerva pocket watches.
