Mother’s Day 2024 – Our Top Five Picks

by Matt Clymo

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and we have 5 watches that say “I love you and you’re the best” to the Mum in your life.

Mother’s Day is next Sunday, and what better way to tell the Mum in your life “I love you, you’re the best and thanks for being there for me” than a watch she can treasure and keep. We’ve selected five watches that say just this, at different price points for those who want to give the gift of time.

Seiko Presage Cocktail Time – SRE007J1

Seiko always represents value for money, and for the Mother in your life, the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time SRE007J1 is a great choice for under A$1,000. At 30mm it will suit most wrists, and with a beautifully patterned dial, diamond indices, and classic-styled hands, this is a highly versatile piece that will go with most outfits.
Priced at $875, it’s a piece that won’t break the bank at all and will look great in many years to come.
RRP: A$875. Available through Seiko Retailers or online

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 – 30mm

The great thing about TAG Heuer is they offer so much value at different price points and have something for everyone. Case in point – the 30mm Aquaracer Professional 200 in quartz with a light blue sunray brushed dial. The blue looks fantastic and in the sun radiates beautifully, and the lumed hands and indices makes this super easy to read.
Whilst it’s a sports piece at heart being 200m water resistant, the polished inner links on the bracelet and dial dress this up a lot!
RRP: A$2,800. Available at TAG Heuer boutiques, authorised retailers and online at

Cartier Tank Must Watch

Cartier is timeless – there is a reason they are, well, Cartier! The Cartier Tank Must Watch is the perfect piece for the Mum who is classic and timeless, and who likes their fashion to be the same. With the classic Tank rectangle-shaped case, Roman numerals on the dial, and black leather strap, it looks great on the wrist.
At 29.5mm x 22mm, it will look perfect on most wrists and the great thing about Cartier is it dresses up and down!
RRP: A$5,350. Available through Cartier Boutiques or online at

IWC Portugieser Automatic 40

Even though this is a 40mm watch, this is perfect for those Mums who want something a little bigger and with more presence on their wrist. With classic lines and a unisex style, not to mention it’s automatic with 60 hours of power reserve, it’s a great everyday wearer.
Don’t like the black? Then you can swap it out for another leather or a rubber strap easily and if supermodel, and Mum Giselle can pull the Portugeiser off, then we’re sold!
RRP: A$11,100. Available through IWC Boutiques, authorised retailers, or online at

Zenith Defy Skyline 36

The Defy Skyline series from Zenith is all about blending modern and classic looks, with a slight edge. The smaller sized 36mm range is perfect for those mums who want to say something about who they are not conforming to the norms, plus the pop of pink on the sun-brushed dial really stands out!
It comes with an additional pink runner strap, and with Zenith’s quick-change system, means that Mum can swap it out for a more sportier look – so it’s like two watches in one!
RRP: A$13,500. Available through Zenith retailers or online at

Whatever you choose for Mum, or the mother figure in your life this Mother’s Day, be it a watch or not, then I’m sure she’ll love it if it’s from the heart. But, we think she’ll love one of these pieces above, just saying!
