If you are looking for something along these lines for a Christmas gift, then the Panerai Luminor Marina Goldtech is the watch for you. The 44mm case of the timepiece is made from Goldtech – a distinctive precious metal that gives a unique tone to the watch.

It is also the first new Speedmaster Moonwatch to house the iconic Calibre 321, the first movement ever used in the Omega Speedmaster in 1957. This special piece comes in a 42mm case made from platinum alloy and a black ceramic bezel with the Speedmaster’s famous tachymeter scale in white enamel. The onyx deep black step dial set with 18K white gold hands and indexes features subdials made from actual slices of moon meteorite. Need we say more?
