Down here in Australia, Father’s Day is celebrated on September 1, which happens to be — wait for it — this Sunday, AKA a mere six sleeps away. Which, in the scheme of retail and everyone’s busy life, isn’t that long at all. So, as a helpful reminder, we’ve put together five banging Father’s Day gifts from our shop, which, if you order them quick smart, should make it in time. Failing that, you can always print off the confirmation email and pop it in with a nice card.
So whether you’re a watch-loving dad who’s looking to helpfully forward a link to your nearest and dearest, or if your own dad’s timepiece (which he’s looking after for the next generation, natch) needs some loving, here are some solid options.
Light brown + white stitch elegant leather strap
This 20mm strap, in light, full-grain leather is the bee’s knees. It’s elegant enough for Lange through to Seiko, but also not overly dressy, thanks to the warm tone, rich texture and contrast stitch. Honestly, it looks good with pretty much anything. Plus the taper is hella elegant. $175 AUD
Watch tool and case
Tools are one of those classic Father’s Day gifts — you know, men, sheds and all the rest. Now, a Bunnings voucher is the obvious choice, but a Karcher is no good for when you need to change that fiddly bracelet on the fly. For that, our stylish and practical watch tool (with convenient pouch) is your best bet. $65 AUD
Orange elegant leather watch pouch
You might be all grown up, but that doesn’t mean dad has no other babies he needs to look after. Only difference is they have names like Rolex GMT-Master II and Speedy Pro, while yours is Daryl. Unless, of course, your old man is *really* into watches. Anyway, I feel that’s a little off-topic. Long story short, this popping orange case is all your dad needs to transport watches in style. $139 AUD
Longines Legend Diver Black
Accessories are all well and good, but getting your dad a full-on new watch is a power move. And besides being an impressive casual option in its own right, the Longines Legend Black is a great choice, because the box it comes in is super impressive, which makes the ceremony of giving even more epic. Best-child status, unlocked. $3550 AUD
Red + cream stitch vintage leather strap
Your dad is outstanding, right? So don’t you want him to stand out? Well, with this fun (and, if you pop it on a green-dialled watch, festive) red leather strap will help him do just that. It’s a cool look, and a welcome change from the usual shades of beige. $175 AUD
