A Father's Day Watch for Every Budget

on Jun 16, 2015 9:00 AM

If you’re like most of us, when you think Father’s Day you think golf accessories and watches. Both of which can be baffling to buy for the average Father’s Day gift-giver.

We may not know a lot about golf, but we definitely have some watch wisdom.

Here are five watches that range in both style and budget:

Under $100

A Nixon original, the Time Teller features a 3 hand quartz movement and a custom solid stainless steel case. This popular watch comes in 31 style variations, all at a very affordable price.

Under $300

The Hawthone Silver-Tone Leather Watch keeps things classic with a silver-tone stainless steel case and chronograph dials. Its leather design allows it to fit well in a casual setting, yet the clean lines and dark face allow it to transition well into the boardroom.

Under $500

Nixon strikes again with the Ranger Chrono, a rugged watch designed for a more active lifestyle. Its dual-eyed chronograph will keep you on time no matter how far into the mountains you hike.

Under $1,000

Shinola watches are made entirely in Detroit, Michigan, something the brand prides itself on. We love the modern face of The Rambler 44mm paired with honey tone leather.

A True Splurge

Now if you love your dad a whole lot, you might want to consider one of the big guns. Audemars Piaget’s Grande Complication is a selfwinding watch with perpetual calendar, minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph and small seconds at 9 o’clock. But, really, you buy this baby for the impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail.
