Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphérotourbillon

For fathers who appreciate technical performance and aesthetic refinement within the same instrument, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphérotourbillon makes the perfect gift. A cut-away on the magnetite grey dial beautifully reveals the fascinating spectacle of a multi-axis tourbillon. Adapting to the flexibility of wrist watches, it revolves on two axis for two distinct and rapid rotations, rendering the pull of gravity futile. Satin-brushed pink gold encases the Dual-Wing concept — Sphérotourbillon stage right, on the left, a main dial for time and date, a 24-hour subdial and small second subdial — while a transparent case-back offers an admirable "backstage" view.

This is one for the men with an affinity for fancy shirtsleeves. Slide a cuff up and the Tiffany & Co. East West stuns not just with its striking blue shade but silver poudré numerals marking time on a horizontally-oriented dial. Inspired by a 1940s purse watch, the whimsical timepiece comes exclusively with Swiss quartz movements; hence, fulfilling the slim stature requisition for dress watches. Blue alligator straps fasten onto steel cases measuring 25mm wide by 42mm tall.

Dark and angular, the Rado Ceramica in matte black could add some unexpected groove into a modern man's wardrobe. Refreshed and relaunched in collaboration with industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, the unique geometric watch houses a quartz movement fronted by a slick lacquered black dial and Super-LumiNova coated hands. The satin-finished variant boasts an addition small second subdial. Crafted from high-tech ceramic, it wears comfortably on the skin, adjusts to body temperature and is actually hypoallergenic.

To give someone true wrist presence, this is it. The Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 now comes in a gold version. Magic Gold, to be exact. The sorcery lies in an alloy of gold and ceramic, which means, for the first time ever, scratch-prone gold is transformed into a material so hard, diamonds are used to cut it. The movement too clamours for the limelight. The Hublot HUB1201 is brand new, skeletonised, hand-wound and bears resemblance to Meccano construction toys. Thanks to twin mainspring barrels, winding is only required once in ten days — efficiently prompted by not one but two markers.

Black Bay characteristics are still preserved in the 41mm steel case, angular snowflake hands, domed dial and crystal. A fixed bezel in circular satin-brushed steel with engraved tachymetric scale completes the face of this sporty new chronograph.

If it's elegance you seek, consider the streamlined aesthetic of the Tonda 1950 Lune for a handsome Father's Day present. Occupying a modest 39mm, the steel case supported by signature concave lugs and shiny black opaline dial sets the stage for the distinctive moon-phase function and large date aperture. Only 9.6mm thick, it is powered by Manufacture Calibre PF708, an ultra-thin automatic movement with a micro-rotor and a 48-hour power reserve. Four rose-gold discs displays the current moon-phase on both hemispheres while the indicator features a calibrated scale that corresponds to an actual lunar month.
