​Diwali is the perfect time to tell your friends and family just how much they mean to you—one of the best ways of doing that is with a gift that'll last forever. But finding that 'dream' gift isn't always easy, and it helps to have a li'l help! We've found the one extra-ordinary gift for the special lady in your life, or even for yourself!

There's no denying that a watch makes for a great, practical gift. Everybody needs one (because there's no fun in checking the time on your smartphone)—but it doesn't have to be just functional. A stylish, versatile watch isn't just a great investment, it's a keepsake. At the moment, for instance, we are currently obsessed with the new Longines DolceVita—a gold and silver version of the old classic. It is not only the perfect arm-candy, but also extremely practical. The scratchproof sapphire crystal glass will keep the watch as good as new for a long, long time. What really makes the watch a classic, in our opinion, is the sleek steel case featuring a solid gold crown (also available in a version set with diamonds). The watch though, under-stated and sophisticated, would never go unnoticed.

The new models are available in four sizes and come with a silver-coloured 'flinqué' dial adorned with painted Roman numerals or a black lacquered or white mother-of-pearl dial enhanced with diamond indexes, all featuring a rose gold hourglass.

We love that it comes in a double-tone of silver and gold, and could qualify as one of the most versatile accessories in our wardrobe—perfect to add a touch of class to both western and ethnic outfits.

The new Longines DolceVita is launching this month and we're SO excited!
