7 Watches Dads Will Love This Father's Day
Father's day is near, and that means it's time to let your old man know just how much you appreciate him. What better way to do that than with a classic watch?
Face it. Dads love watches. It's one of those traits that seems to mysteriously appear as soon as someone becomes a Dad. So here's a handy gift guide for Father's Day, for kids who don't know what to get their dad, and for dads that don't know what to ask for.
The Aquis epitomizes form and function. A gorgeous 43mm watch, with a robust case and rugged but classy look, is a perfect gift for the best dad in the world. Oris is a Swiss Watchmaker whose persistence in the face of adversity for over 100 years has earned themselves a sacred place in the watchmaker community and particularly in our store.
The Oris Sixty Five is the culmination of classic styling and modern appointments. It's a dive watch, complete with unidirectional bezel, screw down crown, glow in the dark markers, and Silicon Rubber band, all wrapped up in a classic and gorgeous package.
Inspired by the skies and the airmen who navigate them, the Oris Big Crown is discreet and simple, but oh so right. Perfect for the Dad with his head in the clouds.
Who doesn't love a Skeleton-style watch? You could spend hours watching that incredible movement winding and spinning around. Every watch collector (erm, dad) has one of these on their wish list.
The Seiko Turtle itself has an incredible reputation. Originally debuting in the 1970s, it was Seiko's first attempt at a full-featured dive watch. Over time, it became a staple in any diver's collection of gear, and now is a highly sought collector's piece.
One of our absolute favorite pieces we've ever had in our store. The Samurai is another collector's model that is highly coveted, characterized by its round dial and squared case. The blue dial and bezel color combination is one of the most stunning we've seen on a watch.
Okay so maybe your Dad isn't into classic, collector time-pieces. We totally understand. Maybe he likes Star Wars. Maybe he plays with lightsabers when the family isn't looking, and hopes to one day beat the Kessel Run in less than 12 Parsecs. We won't judge. We think your Dad is cool. Your Dad thinks this watch is cool. You should get him this watch. Because you think that your Dad is cool, which makes us cool. Cool?
So there you have it. A totally unbiased, not written by your dad, list of watches that your dad probably wants. I mean, I'm not sure. I'm not your dad.
P.S. (This is your dad, please take the trash out)
