There comes a time when we need to appreciate the every day heroes in our lives. Fathers.
That being said, buying a gift for father’s can be particularly challenging as many don’t know where to start.
With Father’s Day creeping up, we felt that it is only fitting that we help pick out three modern and masculine timepieces that would make for a perfect Father’s Day gift.
Bell & Ross BR 03-92 MA-1
If your father is a fan of airplanes and fighter jets then look no further than the BR 03-92 MA-1. Inspired largely by the classic US Air Force MA-1 flight jacket from 1958, the timepiece goes beyond the instrument panel aesthetic that Bell & Ross watches are known for. The strap features a reversible green-orange calfskin that is very much like the original jacket’s ability to be reversible, turning the bright orange interior out, allowing for downed pilots to be more visible for rescue teams. Essentially, it is a versatile watch for any flight loving father who appreciates a timepiece with some history and style.
Franck Muller Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive in Carbon
The Vanguard Crazy Hours faithfully reflects the House’s audacity, while bringing a unique aestheticism to the collection. Clad in lightweight black carbon case, the dial is adorned with the appliqué relief numerals and is perfectly complemented by a tone-to-tone winding crown. It is also available in a classy rose gold, steel. The lines and curves of the timepiece symbolize its elegant and iconic design with a touch of sporty elements. Pamper your father in style with this Asia exclusive collection.
Nothing quite says adventure than the Eterna KonTiki Automatic Date. After all the name KonTiki, or ‘God of Sun’, was the name of the raft used by Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl, along with five other crew members, to journey from South America to Polynesia in 1947. In honour of that 101-day oceanic odyssey, Eterna adopted the KonTiki name for its most rugged line of timepieces as they were able to withstand immense amounts of punishment. The Eterna KonTiki Automatic Date definitely wears its explorer heritage with pride, making it ideal for adventurous fathers out there.
