Still searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Ditch those shirts, stop searching and visit us. With life being so busy, and there never being enough time, we suggest you give dad, or the father of your children, the gift of time — in the form of a wristwatch. Don’t stop reading here because you think this is going to break the bank. It isn’t. There is a watch out there for every budget. There’s still time to stop in and take a look at our vast selection of watches for the dad in your life.
Sport watches make a great gift because they are versatile and can be a great weekender or an everyday watch. In fact, one of the hottest trends in the watch world right now is the sport watch with a car-inspired design. Often these have bold looks with a masculine overtone. Also important are sport watches equipped with functions. There are dive watches, pilot watches, watches with altimeters, chronographs and even a compass — in case dad gets lost easily.
Another important trend for men this year is the shift to colorful watches. No longer does the watch on his wrist need to be basic black or brown. This year, watch brands have introduced a host of great watches in both sporty and classic designs, but with bold colors including green, burgundy, rich royal blue and slate gray. Color is a great way to add a pop of fun and fashion into dad’s life.
For those living in warm climates, you may want to get dad a bracelet watch, and this year many of the brands are stepping up the design of their watch bracelets. Easily one of the more classic looks is the Milanese mesh bracelet, which also takes on a sporty look when done in stainless steel. Two-tone bracelets are also making strong headway, as they offer more versatility and hit a more popular price point than solid gold. This is a great year to buy a bracelet watch because watch brands are not only focusing on aesthetics, but also on comfort, offering more supple links that won’t tug on the hairs of the wrist.
This is the year to give dad the gift of time. It is a gift that will have him remembering you every time he glances at his wrist.
