by John Sealander

Give Dad Quality Time

Father’s Day is only weeks away. Instead of another tie or a pair of Argyle socks, perhaps it’s time to give Dad something he really wants on his special day. Wouldn’t Dad like to receive a handsome new wristwatch? Of course he would.

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.
Father's Day

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

Rüdiger WatchesIf Dad likes water sports, he’ll love the Rüdiger Chemnitz. 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.

Giulio Romano Watches

Giulio Romano WatchesIs Dad fond of Italian style? You don’t need to buy him a Ferrari. Get him a Giulio Romano Piemonte timepiece instead. This surprisingly affordable luxury timepiece will remind you of some of the world’s most exclusive sporting and yachting watches. The Piemonte features a beautifully finished dial with bold sans-serif numbers. Three well-placed subdials indicate the day, date, and 24-hour time. From the massive stainless steel screws securing the bezel, to the precisely knurled crown and pushers, this precision timepiece exhibits a level of quality that is extremely difficult to find in this price range.

If Dad always fancied himself as a racing driver, you’ll definitely want to get him the spectacular Giulio Romano Pescara driver’s multifunction watch. 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.

Gevril GV2 Timepieces

GV2 WatchesDoes Dad have a flamboyant personality? Maybe he deserves something extravagant in return. The Limited Edition Gevril GV2 Fiamme exudes strength and power. From the fiery red crown to the beautifully textured dial, the exclusive Fiamme has a stylish swagger that will appeal to the confident man who knows his own mind. This fabulous GV2 timepiece features stylized raised Roman numbers radiating from the center of the dial, with distinctive indices carved into the massive steel case. 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. This unique Swiss made timepiece features a massive two-layer 50 mm case with an oversize bezel attached with eight precision hex screws. The back features a glass window attached with sixteen screws to showcase the inner workings of the precision automatic chronograph movement. Everything about this dramatically styled watch has been designed to make a big statement.
