The perfect Father's Day present

First published: 11-06-2014

With Father's Day just around the corner (June 15th), it can often be really difficult to buy a gift that suitably expresses how much you appreciate your dad. Especially when he seems to already have everything that he wants, what are your options?

Sometimes, a watch can be just the right thing. Even if he's already got one, some timepieces look good with specific colours or are best worn for certain occasions. 

Buying him a quality watch is not only a practical move, but could also be a wise decision if your dad maybe struggles to keep abreast of the latest fashion trends. You could ensure he's the envy of everyone at work or down the golf club if you get him a trendy timepiece. Here are a few options:

Emporio Armani Men's Valente Watch

This is one of our bestsellers and rightfully so. It's a classic and boasts a stainless steel design with a round black dial and silver hands. With slick Roman numerals to ensure you always know what time it is, this offering from Emporio Armani is sure to go down a treat. 

It's also available in three alternative colours to give you even more options, while it's water-resistant up to 50 metres. Sleek and sophisticated, but not too over-the-top, this could be a genuine contender to help you to win child of the year. 

Casio Men's G-Shock Alarm Chronograph Watch

If your dad is the active sort and needs a heavy-duty timepiece, then this Casio model could be a match made in heaven. 

Deep ocean diving isn't out of the question with this watch, as it's 200 metres water-resistant and built "as tough as possible" as it has a "sturdy rubber strap with double tang buckle for extra security".

It's 55mm wide and 17mm deep, and comes in six different colours or designs. At the moment there's a sale on this item, so get it quick and surprise your Dad with the perfect gift this Father's Day. 

Fossil Men's Grant Chronograph Watch

Another one of our bestsellers is this model from Fossil and it's the epitome of smartness. 

With a stainless steel round case, noticeable Roman numeral hour markers and a brown genuine leather strap, this timepiece would look seriously good adorning your father's wrist. 

There's nothing ancient about this Fossil piece, just lashings of sophistication that will enable your dad to make it on time to his various engagements in style. 

Calvin Klein Unisex Color Watch

Calvin Klein offers a wide range of classy products, some of which are typically understated yet still manage to be wildly popular. 

The same can be said for this timepiece, which is the embodiment of less is more. With an aluminium case and an absence of Roman numerals, this watch keeps things simple yet effective. It's also got a fastened black rubber strap and a white dial, although it's available in three additional colours. 

This model doesn't feel the need to fill the space on the watch face and lets it speak for itself. If your dad seems to be the kind of person who doesn't like all the frills, then this could be a great present idea this coming Sunday.
