When you decide to gift a watch to someone close to your heart, it is more than just a symbol of your love and undying affection for them. Every single movement of the hand beneath the watch glass is a gentle reminder of the treasure that is time, and symbolic of the time that you have spent with the person. And nothing quite expresses your heart’s desire other than a specially chosen timepiece from the vast Rolex watches collection placed carefully in the gift box, waiting to be unwrapped.


The often used phrase ‘timeless beauty’ fits seamlessly with a Rolex, unlike with any other watch brand. It is, therefore, only right that you gift one to the ones that hold the highest regard in your life: your family. Whether it is your mother’s birthday, your parents’ wedding anniversary, your brother’s first day at the office, or your sister’s graduation day, you can seal the occasion forever by gifting them stunning timepieces from Rolex watch collections that compliment them perfectly.

If you’re worried where you would find that perfect Rolex timepiece in India, then you’d be glad to know that world class retailers like Ethos Watch Boutiques have stores located across the country with the most popular watches from Rolex. But, before you head to the store, here’s a quick heads up on which Rolex watch to gift which family member:

The Datejust 41 for Your Father

Your mother is undoubtedly the crown jewel of the family, and for that, she deserves nothing less than the Pearlmaster 39. Perhaps the best Rolex jewellery watch, the Pearlmaster 39 brings a strong feminine design aesthetic to the timepiece with its delicate curves and dazzling dials richly studded with diamonds, sapphires or rubies. The Everose gold in this model is a patented pink gold alloy of Rolex that imparts a unique aura to the watch in its 18 Ct form, and won’t go amiss with the tenderness of a mother’s love and affection. The most striking aspect of this treasured watch is the alignment of meticulously-placed diamond stones all across the dial and the bracelet that casts a spell of enchantment on the wearer. The trademark Cyclops lens for the date, and the utterly precise 3235 calibre movement ensure that the performance of the watch is not compromised. Once gifted to your mother, the Pearlmaster 39 can easily go on to become a treasured family heirloom in the future.
