Puma

There are few watches more practical than Puma's Viga digital watch, a lightweight plastic number. The supple plastic strap is extremely comfortable and the rather chic, unexpected flash of red along the sides is an attractive bonus.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs's cute, fruit-shaped pendant watches started a huge trend in pendant clocks and a whole host of imitations. The classic pear and apple designs are still available, but Marc Jacobs has moved on to launch a quirky range of wrist watches and newpendant designs like this elegant, ringpull version.

Breguet

Breguet has designed a watch for perfectionists. The Tourbillon was invented with the aim to negate the effect of gravity on the wheels of the watch mechanism. By doing so they claim to have made it painfully accurate, and more beautiful as you can see the innards working.

Video Watch

Keep the children entertained at all times with this amazingly nifty and well-priced watch. Not only does it tell the time but it also plays movies, music and even displays photos on its 1.5 inch screen. The only problem is that you may find yourself borrowing it for days when long board meetings are looming.

D&G

This Codename watch is a really fun wearable timepiece from D&G. There is a choice of a colourful and more serious version, but both are equally practical with dual dials, timer and water resistance as far as 50m - should you fancy taking it diving.
