Father’s Day: The Best Luxury Watches For Every Type of Dad

The Best Luxury Watches to give for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner. Watches are always a good idea to give to your father. More than the watch itself, a watch is symbolic of time. I have always said that when you give someone a watch, you promise him or her a part of your time forever. Check out these luxury watches which are perfect as gifts for every type of dad:

For the sporty

Breitling Super Chronomat B01

Case:                           44mm

Movement:                 Automatic, up to 70hrs power reserve

Material:                     Stainless Steel

Water resistance:      200m

SRP:                             P609,000

The Breitling Chronomat is a classic. You can confidently do anything while wearing it on your wrist. For 2021, Breitling has come out with refreshed models of the Chronomat, including the model featured here.

For the businessman

Vacheron Constantin Patrimony

Movement:                 Automatic, up to 43hrs power reserve

Material:                     18k Pink Gold

SRP:                             P1,410,000

Vacheron Constantin completes the “Holy Trinity of Watchmaking” alongside Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet. It is the least known among the three. Notwithstanding the lack of popularity, Vacheron Constantin produces watches which are of equal, or even greater, quality with the other Swiss watch manufacturers. The Patrimony is Vacheron Constantin’s answer to the minimalist formal wristwatch. Aside from the beauty of the Patrimony, it is also powered by a movement which carries the Geneva Seal. This watch definitely commands respect in the boardroom.

For the traveller

IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph

Case:                           46mm

Movement:                 Automatic, up to 68hrs power reserve

Material:                     Stainless Steel

Water resistance:     60m

SRP:                             $11,900

Known more for the traditional Pilot’s watches, IWC also produces watches for other purposes. The Timezoner is essentially a Pilot’s watch with a multiple time-zone display. IWC has done a great job with sticking to its roots and incorporating other mechanisms which make this watch beautiful and functional at the same time. The Timezoner is perfect for the dad who loves to travel and see the world.

For the adventurer

Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925

Case:                           39mm

Movement:                 Automatic, up to 70hrs power reserve

Material:                     Silver

Water resistance:      200m

SRP:                             P214,000

Tudor has had a magnificent 2021 so far. Most of their watches have been met with general praise from the watch community. One of their standout watches is this Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925. To most, it looks like the ordinary Black Bay Fifty-Eight. However, this watch is made from silver and not stainless steel. This watch absolutely stuns in all aspects from its looks down to its movement. Any father will be happy to wear this to any adventure.

For the dad who loves the beach

Omega Planet Ocean 600m

Case:                            45.5mm

Movement:                 Automatic, up to 60hrs power reserve

Material:                      Stainless Steel

Water resistance:  600m

SRP:                               EUR6,400

Omega needs no introduction. Aside from the quality which Omega is known for, this Planet Ocean carries with it a very beautiful and vibrant mood. While no dad will probably dive with this watch to 600m (which it is capable of), most dads would love to be accompanied by this watch to the beach.

For your grandfather

Rolex Cellini Time

Case:                            39mm

Movement:               Automatic, up to 43hrs power reserve

Material:                    18ct Everose Gold

Grandfathers are often known to be people who love the classics and who have substance and style. The Rolex Cellini is the perfect embodiment of such traits. You may never be able to reciprocate the love given by your grandfather, but you can always give a watch which will always remind him of the strong bond you two have for each other.
