As the year-end draws closer, so do the annual Christmas festivities. For those serving the role of ‘Secret Santa’, you’d be glad to know that the folks at Red Army Watches (RAW) have readied a specially curated catalogue of gifts that are poised to make the holiday even more special.

Featuring a wide selection of unique timepieces and accessories, one might just find the perfect present to lay in your loved ones’ Christmas stockings this year, regardless if they’ve been naughty or nice. Here’s what’s up for grabs from RAW for the holidays this year.

Apart from the lone eyewear piece in this list, all the timepieces featured here are now retailing at all RAW boutiques located in Utama Shopping Centre, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Gurney Plaza Penang, as well as the mo.men.tum boutique in Sunway Velocity Mall.

Sixtythree by Alexander Shorokhoff

Inspired by the flat timepiece designs of the 1960s, the Sixtythree serves as the perfect gift for any sophisticated gentleman or lady. Classic, smart, and sleek, there’s also a touch of rose gold plated indexes 20, 40 and 60 that adds finesse, not forgetting a Swiss rotor that’s engraved and refined in the signature Shorokhoff fashion. Its curved dial can be had in midnight blue, emerald green, bordeaux red and or black finishes, thus making it the perfect wristwatch to blend in with elegant festive colors.

PRICE: RM6,800


Yakutia by Poljot International

Next comes a dazzlingly bejeweled timepiece made especially for ladies. The Yakutia sees Poljot International celebrate the part of Siberian Russia that is rich in diamond and gold. It radiates the richness of the republic through the delicate mother of pearl dial set with Swarovski crystals, as well as the seconds hand at 6 o’clock design inspired by its national identity. Finishing things off is a light-coloured claf leather strap set and a sapphire crystal glass, the latter meant to complement the icy-cold atmosphere of Christmas time.

PRICE: RM2,020

Automatic Vintage Lens II by TACS

Crafted especially for devotees of photography, the Automatic Vintange Lens II (AVL2) sees TACS tap into he rich history of vintage cameras, hence the timepeice’s vintage camera-like design and look. Not just a revitalised version of its predecessor, the AVL2 stands for so much more. It boasts a diamond-cut crown adding a nostalgic touch whilst the minute indicators give off the impression of a focus ring. Silver is also employed to construct the skeleton movement, and there’s the occasional hint of red to help AVL2 stand out as well. Clearly, this is one beauty any avid shutterbug would love having on their wrists.

PRICE: RM2,250


Not just another testament to SEVENFRIDAY’s love for originality and industrial design, this latest addition into the brand’s line up suits both him and her. It features understated greys complemented by flashes of rose gold colouring. Its multi-level interface, outstanding Miyota 8215 engine and NFC chip all add up to make this one a very sought-after timepiece. Combined with rustic shades, this timepiece transforms the SEVENFRIDAY M-Series into an ideal embodiment of the industrial revolution indeed.
