Watches and Father’s Day are a natural combination and while the big day is coming up this Sunday, we thought we’d help you out in choosing the perfect wrist candy for that special dad.
Rather than giving dad another tie or shaving kit, try surprising him with a beautiful luxury watch. Although a watch might be on the pricier side, you need to ask yourself…isn’t dad worth it? Luxury watches are among the few things in life that are able to retain their value throughout the years, and they often get passed down from father to son, becoming cherished heirloom pieces that serve future generations. So, think of it this way, maybe the watch will come back around and end up on your wrist one day.
Whether you need a gift for Dad – or you are a dad and simply want to treat yourself to something extra special this year – a luxury watch makes the perfect Father’s Day present. Below we take a closer look at some of the best luxury watches to give as Father’s Day gifts, along with the different types of dads that are likely to appreciate them the most.

For the classic dad, the stereotypical man-of-the-house father figure, there is no watch more fitting than the iconic two-tone Datejust.
Whether Dad spends his days sitting at a conference room table, relaxing at the beach, or (ideally) a little bit of both depending on the day, the Rolex Datejust is the perfect watch for the occasion and it could easily be the only watch that a person owns and wears, every day for the rest of their life.
Similar to the Datejust, the Rolex Submariner is one of the undisputed icons of horology, and it has served as the blueprint for the classic dive watch for more than half a century. Modern Submariner watches feature cases and bracelets made from highly corrosion-resistant 904L stainless steel and they offer users 300 meters (1,000 feet) of water resistance. Additionally, their rotating timing bezels enable them to be used as rudimentary timers, allowing users to track elapsed time for events up to 60 minutes in length.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual
For the understated dad – the modest man of the house who appreciates fine goods and expert craftsmanship but does not like to flaunt it, the classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual is an excellent option that offers all the hallmark features of a Rolex watch while still managing to fly under the radar. The Oyster Perpetual is Rolex’s entry-level line of timepieces that combine the brand’s two key innovations – the waterproof ‘Oyster’ case and the self-winding ‘Perpetual’ movement.
