With Father’s Day just around the corner, this might be the perfect year to surprise that important man in your life with something that he can not only enjoy every day but will also have a practical use and serve as a reminder of your love for him; a watch. With plenty of options to choose from, we selected four different ones, for four different dads.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Pirelli
Do you have a father who enjoys putting the pedal to the metal? Than this Roger Dubuis Excalibur Pirelli will be right up his alley. The strap features rubber inlays which have been made from Pirelli tyres which have been used to win a real-life race. Despite its diameter of 45mm, the skeletonized black DLC titanium case is very light and created to highlight the beauty of calibre RD820SQ, which has been skeletonized as well. This allows dad to see and enjoy the mechanics of this exquisite movement, as well as its fine finishing as it is also awarded the coveted Poinçon de Genève.
Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Day-Date
With the FiftySix collection, Vacheron Constantin created a beautiful, functional every-day watch with that dash of classic elegance that the brand is so well-known for. Perhaps the perfect choice for a dad who enjoys to suit up. What makes this FiftySix Day-Date so special is not only it’s charismatic dial design, with the power reserve indicator adding a dash of nonconformism by being placed off center, but also the fact that its case is made out of stainless steel. This gives it a modern edge and makes it go equally well with a pair of chino’s when dad is done working for the day.
Grand Seiko SBGC221
For the SBGC221 did Grand Seiko combine titanium and zirconia ceramic to craft its case and bracelet. A lot of care and dedication were put into the finishing of these materials, which demand the hand of a master to reach perfection. That also makes this Grand Seiko a gift to consider when you have a dad who is a forward thinker but also has a profound respect for tradition. This Grand Seiko is powered by calibre 9R86, which offers both a chronograph- as well as a GMT-function, and combines the pleasures of a mechanical movement with the precision of Grand Seiko’s Spring Drive technology. This way, dad is getting the best of both worlds.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique Grande Date
With the Fifty Fathoms by Blancpain, you are giving dad a diving watch that was not only the very first to ever be created but also became a benchmark for the category. This Fifty Fathoms Automatique Grande Date features a 45mm large titanium case and is fitted with a canvas strap made from sail-cloth. It is equipped with automatic calibre 6918B, which is made completely in-house at the manufacture of Blancpain, and features a large date that is perfectly integrated into the dial design. It is also water resistant up to 300 meters, making it the perfect gift for dads who like to get their feet wet.
