This is not a drill—Father’s Day is just a couple of weekends away! Aside from treating him to a celebratory brunch or splurging on a new bag for his adventures, of all the gift ideas out there, you can never go wrong with gifting a well-made timepiece—yes, this is the right moment to jazz up their collection. Keep reading to find six timepieces that will make him feel special. 


The daredevil

Whether he enjoys sailing or diving with the gangs, the Breitling Superocean Automatic 42 is the perfect companion for his thrilling voyage. The all-new Superocean boasts a bright yellow dial that accentuates the chunky squared-off hands and luminous indexes, making it easy to read underwater. Further, it features an up-to-date ceramic-inlay bezel that is not only scratch-proof but also allows you to track time since it is unidirectional.

Alternatively, the Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph is the best choice, as it includes a heavy-duty titanium grade 2 bracelet for maximum durability and mobility in harsh conditions. This wristwatch sports a sunray-brushed black face and is powered by the latest Solargraph Calibre, which provides uninterrupted energy throughout the day. 


 The on-trend dad

Green dials have grown increasingly popular in recent years, and the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon makes them more desirable than ever. Housed in a platinum case, the new Traditionnelle Tourbillon offers a sunburst green dial magnified by white gold hour markers, Dauphine-style hands, and a tourbillon at the six o’clock position. On top of that, it is powered by the in-house Calibre 2160/1 and is fitted with a deep green alligator leather strap that lends the model dimension and elegance.

On the other hand, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet is an excellent pick as the Swiss watchmaker elevates the collection’s timeless elegance with the ‘Bleu nuit, Nuage 50’ dial that stands in contrast with the grey inner bezel. Additionally, the ‘made in Swiss’ watch comes with a blue rubber-coated band and is run by Calibre 4302, which has a power reserve of 70 hours. 


The cool dad

The Zenith Defy Skyline is the answer for those looking for a versatile accessory. Powered by the El Primero 3620, the bold Defy Skyline sports a faceted bezel and highlights the black-toned sunburst-patterned dial with a touch of the emblematic four-point star. Another plus is that it comes with an adjustable band, which enables you to switch between the steel bracelet and the black patterned rubber straps whenever you like.

Meanwhile, the Tudor Black Bay 58 may strike a chord with those who admire vintage timepieces. Together with the brushed navy blue dial and unidirectional rotating bezel, this wristwatch includes a polished riveted steel bracelet that gives it a more classic style that plays well with any outfit. The steel case additionally stores the Calibre MT5402, which has a power reserve of 70 hours.
