Father’s Day 2019: Timepieces made for dads with a bold sense of style

This Father’s Day, make the celebration extra special for dad with a gift that he can cherish for years to come. If your old man is never one to shy away from statement pieces, we’ve got just the list of luxury watches that will surely pique his fancy:

Hublot Big Bang Unico Chronograph WBC

If your dad happens to be a boxing fan, then this will be the knockout choice. Hublot continues to honour its relationship with the World Boxing Council with the Big Bang Unico Chronograph WBC. Available in green ceramic and yellow gold green ceramic, the special edition timepiece boasts a self-winding chronograph flyback movement with a 72-hour power reserve housed in a 45mm case. The WBC logo stands out at 9 o’clock on the matt black skeleton dial, flanked by matching gold hands and indicators.

Franck Muller Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive

For the man who appreciates a little kookiness in his life, the Franck Muller Vanguard Crazy Hours is sure to hold his attention. Easily distinguished by its Cintrée Curvex case shape and funky jumping hour module, the Asia Exclusive editions see the timepiece clad in either a classy rose gold or sporty black carbon.

MB&F LM Split Escapement Titanium Green

Now this is a number sure to turn those around the wearer green with envy. Following the white gold versions that introduced us to the LM Split Escapement back in 2017, MB&F’s latest Legacy Machine is a real beauty featuring a green sunray dial housed in a titanium case. Just beneath the domed crystal, you’ll get to admire the balance of the LM Split Escapement beating at a sedate 2.5Hz.

RM 35-02 Rafael Nadal

When talking about statement timepieces, you can’t leave Richard Mille out of the conversation. Our eyes are on the RM 35-02 Automatic Rafael Nadal, a watch born as a response to the requests for a self-winding mechanism at the heart of a Nadal calibre. Crafted in Carbon TPT, it is lightweight and durable, made so the tennis star can actually wear it to play (and win) his matches.

Bell & Ross BR03-94 R.S.19

After the boxing ring and tennis court, we’re moving on to the racetrack. Now in their fourth year of partnership, Bell & Ross and the Renault F1 team zooms into the 2019 with four new limited-edition chronographs. Amongst them is the BR03-94 R.S.19, a race-ready instrument housed in the brand’s iconic square case, with the carbon dial sporting a bold (and highly legible) palette derived from the Renault F1 Team’s steering wheel colour-coding. Check out the full BR R.S. 19 Collection here.
