FIVE FINE LUXURY TIMEPIECES THAT ARE PERFECT FOR FATHER’S DAY

June 17 is the day we honour fathers everywhere. Father’s Day is more than just a celebration where we honour Dad but it’s a special occasion to show our appreciation to our No 1 guy who’s always been there for us. Much like a fine mechanical timepiece, he is complex, reliable and timeless – which is why watches make perfect Father’s Day gifts. We’ve narrowed down a selection to suit every kind of Dad out there.

ELEGANT GENTLEMAN
The Watch: Oris Rectangular Complication

If your old man is the sort who appreciates the finer things in life, then the Oris Rectangular Complication will be right up his alley. With its stainless steel 33mm x 46mm stainless steel frame, the timepiece strikes a look that’s both elegant as well as sophisticated. The face itself is an object of beauty with a guilloché dial with a balanced display of date, day of week and 24-hour indicator as well as an eye-catching moon phase window at 12 o’clock. The Oris Rectangular Complication is powered by an automatic winding movement developed by Oris, which comes with a power reserve of 38 hours. A black leather strap with a stainless-steel folding clasp caps off this classic timepiece.

RENAISSANCE MAN
The watch: Raymond Weil Calibre RW1212 Skeleton

The Calibre RW1212 Skeleton represents Raymond Weil’s desire to keep pushing back the boundaries of timekeeping. Bold and distinctive the timepiece features an open-worked dial, which reveals the complicated movement in its full glory. Framed by a 42mm steel case, the movement’s architecture and details are unique. It is presented in three different executions – a full black PVD plated version with rose gold indexes and hands, which offers urban modernity, a rose gold and stainless-steel two-tone model with a brown leather strap for attitude and elegance and a full stainless-steel model with blue indexes and hands for a more cosmopolitan feel.

THE JETSETTER
The watch: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time

The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time is the perfect timepiece for the globetrotting Dad. Crafted in 41mm stainless steel case, the watch houses an all-new mechanical self-winding movement, developed in-house, which features twin barrels and a 60-hour power reserve. The timepiece offers simultaneous reading of two time-zones, beautifully displayed on a crisp, clean dial that also houses an AM/PM indicator. All time-zone functions are set via the crown, which can be moved in two directions to set local time independently from the home time-zone.

THE ADVENTURER
The watch: Bremont Supermarine Endurance

Named after explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s expedition to the South Pole in 1912, the Bremont Supermarine Endurance is a hardy, fully-functional and stylish timepiece that’s perfect for a tough, rugged individual. Limited to 300 pieces, the timepiece is equipped with a modified calibre 11 ¼”’ BE-93-2AE automatic chronometer with 42-hour power reserve and GMT, encased in a 43mm satin and polished titanium case with a bi-directional rotating compass bezel with Super LumiNova. Equipped with an anti-shock movement mount and an automatic helium escape valve and crown protector as well as an orange NATO strap, the Supermarine Endurance is the perfect companion for his next big adventure.

BOARDROOM BOSS
The watch: IWC Big Pilot’s Annual Calendar Edition

For Dad who is meticulous and a stickler for time, the IWC Big Pilot’s Annual Calendar Edition is the one timepiece that will find a permanent home on his wrist. Measuring a generous 46mm in diameter, the watch features a fetching dial that’s equipped with a month, date and day displayed in three separate windows. The movement is the advanced in-house 52850 calibre, a marvel of ingenuity as it takes the length of the individual months into account, only requiring manual correction via the crown once a year at the end of February. It also carries a seven-day power reserve as well, which ensures that Dad is always on time, no matter how busy he is.
