Looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Nothing says your love will last the test of time like a fine watch. A luxury timepiece declares commitment and that you’re in this for the long haul. It symbolizes that your love will last as long as the special watch (that could be gifted to future generations). But Valentine’s Day is also about romance and rekindling those warm feelings that brought you together. Here are watches that say both: you have my everlasting love and my immediate passion.

1: Vanguard Heart Skeleton by Franck Muller
A masterwork of femininity that also exudes a masculine side, Franck Muller captures the Valentine’s Day spirit with its Vanguard Heart Skeleton collection.

True to their name, Vanguard Heart Skeletons have sculpted hearts that form bridges over their skeletonize movements with openwork dials. Small hour, minute and second hands add delicate touches to the innovative designs that leave no doubt that you’re a romantic at heart!
2: Urwerk’s UR-106 Flower Power
Sure, hearts say “I love you” in the most obvious of ways. But diamonds have a bigger impact. And we’re talking about a lot of diamonds! Urwerk’s UR-106 Flower Power packs in a whopping 239 Wesselton diamonds for a total of 2.53 carats. A dazzling gift for Valentine’s Day, precious stones form an elegant lotus flower at the center of the face with delicate petals that ingeniously fit between rotating hour satellites. Three smaller diamond-set flowers surround the main floret to complete the glittering motif that you might want to view while wearing sunglasses. If the diamond overload doesn’t show where your heart is, the price tag surely will. At a cost of over $100,000, no one will ever question your dedication to the relationship!
