The What We Covet Holiday Gift Guide 2012, Part 3: The Cultured Gentleperson

Everyone needs to be able to tell time. Punctuality is important. Now, the Cultured Gentleperson you're shopping for is enough of a gentleperson not to be late to anything, but you can still help them keep this trend up by giving them a lovely watch to add to their cultured collection:

So classy! This 19th Century English Watch is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have never been there, but I would bet real money that they know a little something about art and watch styles through the centuries. Here we have no bling, no wacky shapes, no nonsense. It's just so elegant and wonderful!

Be careful, though; this is a men's watch, so make sure your gentleperson's wrist can handle it. (Even if you get it wrong--best regift ever? I THINK SO.)

PS How about that election, guys? I'm guessing we all have a lot of feelings about this.
