Photography by Craig Landale
We recently took part in an Instagram take over project with Francis & Gaye Jewellers to showcase 5 exclusive watches in a styled photoshoot by us.
Francis & Gaye Jeweller's is a family run business, Established over 20 years ago in 1990. Their first and now flagship store was opened in Coventry by Roger Francis and Alan Gaye. James Harrison joined Francis & Gaye in early 1996 when he was just 19 years old, later to be joined by Mark Francis, Roger's son, in 2001, after graduating from the GIA in Carlsbad California, earning him a G.G. One of the most highly respected qualifications in the jewellery industry.
In 2011, their Coventry store relocated and underwent a massive transformation selling luxury brands such as Longines watches, Rado watches, Raymond Weil watches, and Tissot.
For the Husband
TAG Heuer - Men's Carrera Calibre 5 Day/Date Swiss Automatic Watch with Gold Ascents. A true luxury wishlist item for any stylish chap. You'd need to be seriously lucky to receive this as a gift but we can keep on dreaming!
For the Brother
Diesel - Men's Leather Strap Mega Chief Chronograph Watch. It's oversized and masculine with a understated brown leather strap. This is a good solid watch for a younger guy who maybe looking to own his first mid range timepiece.
For the Mother
Citizen - Ladies Rose Gold Tone Ciena Watch with 20 Diamonds. It's got all the glitz and glamour needed to accompany a beautiful lady. It presents itself with a classic vintage look where you could imagine it's a rare piece of jewellery.
For the Wife
Michael Kors - Ladies Bradshaw Rose & Blush Chronograph Watch. Rose gold and Michael Kors are two words which go hand-in-hand. The chunky boyfriend style is going nowhere fast and your missus will love it!
For the Father
Tissot - Men's Seastar 1000 Steel Divers Chronograph Watch. A classic design with good weight and perfectly matched for a refined gentleman. At just £450, it's a very good value item and your old man will assume you paid much more - Shhhh.
