So you've been lucky enough to get a bonus this year. You've done all the sensible things: parked a portion of it into your savings, spent some on loved ones and even given a bit of it to charity.
And you find you have enough left over to get yourself something nice, a reward for the hard work you have put in this year.
A fine watch is always a good idea because timepieces are such great repositories of memories. Besides, if you choose wisely, a watch can hold its value and even be an investment. Here are The Straits Times' picks of the top timepieces.
CASIO GMW-B5000 FULL METAL SERIES
Since Casio introduced the Full Metal 5000 series at the Baselworld watch fair last year, they have been flying off the shelves.
It is not hard to understand why.
Stunning to behold and fun to wear, the case, bezel, caseback, and bracelet are all fashioned from sold steel. A special resin between the bezel and main case makes the watch as tough and hardy as any regular G-SHOCK timepiece.
The most popular are last year's stainless steel (S$799) and gold-plated ($849) versions. Newer iterations including a full titanium, GMW-B5000TB-1DR and a camo edition, GMW-B5000TCM-1DR (both S$2,299) have been released.
