The amazing GV2 Montreux is perfect for dads who appreciate the latest in technology. This advanced chronograph features a unique multi-function movement that takes timing events to a whole new level. In watch mode, the hands function just like any three-hand timepiece.

In chronograph mode, these same hands transform into hour, minute, and second totalizers, with the big date display providing accurate timings as short as 1/100 of a second.

The back of the watch is equally spectacular, with a commemorative engraving of the famous statue of Christopher Columbus at the center of Columbus Circle, where all official measurements of New York City begin.

Ferragamo F-80

If your Dad lives life in the fast lane, he’s going to want a Salvatore Ferragamo F-80 on his wrist. This sophisticated 44 mm timepiece is the perfect way to communicate your Dad’s good judgment and taste. With an elegant sunray guilloché dial and a top ring secured by six IP gold screws, the sporty F-80 is the ultimate in casual relaxed luxury.

The large sweep second hand can be controlled by two stainless steel pushers on either side of the crown for timing events. The crown itself is adorned with the Calibre logo and the stainless steel caseback features a beautiful engraving of a WWII era Navy Buffalo fighter plane.

With so many exciting styles and models to choose from, it’s not hard to find a watch that perfectly matches Dad’s personality. Start with the selections shown below. You’ll find fine timepieces in every price range for the sportsman, adventurer, or businessman in your life.

Johan Eric Watches

Johan Eric WatchesWhen Dad goes off to work, he’ll look his very best with a Johan Eric Tondor on his wrist. This handsome tonneau-shaped design features a classic three-hand configuration with a beautiful, integrated mesh band. With its vacuum ion plated rose gold bezel and indices, this slim, classically inspired watch looks much more expensive than it actually is.

For a minimalist, modern look, Dads will appreciate the stunning good looks of the Johan Eric Hobro. The Hobro features an all black IP coated stainless steel case with a matching black dial. A black mesh band completes the stealthy look. The Hobro’s red tipped second hand and easy-to-read date wheel at 6 o’clock provide the perfect contrast to this understated appearance.

Rüdiger Watches

This classically styled diver watch features a stylish protected crown and a unidirectional, rotating stainless steel bezel marked in 60-minute increments. This rugged diver design is water resistant to 170 feet and can be fitted with your choice of a stainless steel bracelet or beautiful textured leather strap.

If you’re not going to give Dad a Porsche on his special day, you can certainly give him something that is characteristically German. The simple understated dial of the Rüdiger Siegen, with its small continuous seconds display, gives this unique watch a distinctly Bauhaus look. A beautiful rose gold crown provides an elegant accent to the harmonious design.

This specialized timepiece features oversized, color-coded pushers to make adjustments easy, even while wearing driving gloves. The Pescara is fitted with a thick, genuine leather strap that complements the case with decorative topstitching and colorfully edged ventilation holes that match the hands and indices.

The entire effect is smart and sophisticated.

For Dads that deserve the very best, you can’t go wrong with the Limited Edition Gevril GV2 Corsaro Chronograph.
