Words by Windup Watch Shop

Mother’s Day is just over two weeks away, so it’s the perfect time to begin brainstorming thoughtful gift ideas. Any mom – or caretaker – anywhere knows that time is the most precious and priceless gift a person can give, so what better way to show appreciation than with a special timepiece? The following watches are designed to bring smiles to their owners, and we hope this gift guide can be a starting point as you shop for your loved ones. As always, the Windup Watch Shop Team is standing by to answer any questions you have. You can book a consultation here.

Timex x Worn & Wound WW75 V2 Limited Edition

The appeal of a Timex is, famously, its ability to “take a licking and keep on ticking”. Moms know better than anyone else that the job is a tough one, and an affordable and fun Timex can be the ideal tool and companion. Based on our first since-sold-out run of WW75 watches, this second version comes in a beautiful pink, white, and teal color combination that is at once retro and fresh. When paired with a stainless steel mesh bracelet, it makes the perfect daily companion no matter the task.

Paulin Neo

In many ways, the Paulin Neo is the best kind of “watch”. It’s simple, classically-sized, and beautiful to look at. That’s essentially all you need to know, but Paulin always delivers a little more: the aluminum dial is manufactured in the UK, the typography is custom made for Paulin, and the movement can be hand wound or automatically wound. Available in a variety of dial colors, the Neo is the quintessential go-anywhere watch with just enough flair as a conversation piece.

ADPT Series 1 GMT

The Series 1 GMT from ADPT packs a punch as a competent sports watch that still knows how to have fun. Moms are often on the go and can certainly appreciate something that can track two time zones while also featuring a rotatable bezel capable of both directional and timing purposes. The lightweight titanium barrel case of the Series 1 is wonderfully sized for all wrists and should wear comfortably all day long. For the mom who would appreciate something rugged, this is it.

Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde

Let’s be honest: mothers know style. Period. For the elegantly-minded, the Louis Erard Excellence Petite Second simply has no substitute. This 39mm timepiece can be had in violet, glacier or night blue, or terracotta, and all are stunningly beautiful. Standout features include the sector dial, concentric finishing on the sub-seconds dial, and brilliantly proportioned hands and hour markers. Louis Erard watches have always embodied a higher standard of finishing and quality for their price, and the Excellence collection is no exception.

Tissot PRX Powermatic Mother of Pearl

Call it a hype watch, a modern classic, whatever. It’s here, and it’s not going anywhere. The Tissot PRX has taken the world by storm and remains popular with both watcheristi and the mainstream at large. The 35mm version of the PRX opened the line’s appeal to an even broader audience, and the mother of pearl dial just adds that perfect final touch to set this version apart from the rest. It’s an integrated bracelet sports watch from a storied Swiss brand with a lauded automatic movement. Enough said.
