IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Moon Phase 

A perfect gift for the man who has everything is a gift that will last a lifetime—perhaps even longer. Designed as a tribute to a watch from 1984, IWC introduced a moon phase complication in the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days model that only needs to be adjusted by one day after 122 years.

The very legible silver-plated dial shows a date at three o'clock, the power reserve at nine o'clock, small hacking seconds at six o'clock and finally the beautiful moon phase at 12.

This watch comes in a stainless steel case with gold plated hands and appliqués. If gold is more your man's colour, a second version is available in an 18-carat red gold case, also with gold-plated hands and solid gold appliqués.

Paired with casual or formal outfits, you can rest assured that your wrist will be dressed appropriately.

IWC Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37

Designed to be delicate for the ladies but no less sophisticated than its men's counterpart, this elegant 37mm watch features gold-plated details and 12 diamonds on its silver-plated dial. It's the ideal gift for the quietly confident woman who loves just a hint of bling.

Light is reflected in several ways and appears to move around in circles when tilting the watch, thanks to the sun-pattern finish of the dial. Similar to the previous model, the moon phase is placed at 12 o'clock and features extra stars.

As it is an automatic watch, you don't need to worry about winding it and can just pick it up from your watch case each morning to go about your day.

If one thing is for certain, it would be hard to find a matching couple's gift that's as sophisticated as this perfect pair of IWC moon phase watches.
