There is a quote from Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman that pretty nicely sums up our feelings on fathers: “She did not stand alone, but what stood behind her, the most potent moral force in her life, was the love of her father.”
Fathers are our best friends, our wise men, and the people who are consistently there throughout our lives with an outstretched hand to help us up when we fall, and an encouraging word to help us try again.
That’s why Father’s Day is so important. It gives us a chance to show dads just how much we appreciate them and their presence as we trek through the peaks and valleys of childhood and, eventually, adulthood.
To celebrate, we’ve gathered together some of our favorite pieces that we think will very clearly communicate the two words we’ve found ourselves saying time and time again. “Thanks, dad.”
One of the most important lessons that can come from a dad isn’t simply how to be strong, but it’s how that strength finds its foundations in one’s ability to be open with themselves and with others.
This piece’s skeleton dial embodies that philosophy with an open design that offers a clear look at the complex mechanical workings of the Zenith Caliber Elite 670SK automatic movement. Luminous hands and an 18K rose gold bezel add a splash of color and luxury to the case’s brushed titanium finish.

Dads devote a lot of time to teaching us about balance. Not just how to balance on a bicycle, but how to maintain an equilibrium throughout our lives.
This watch also seeks to make a statement about balance. The interplay between blue and white across the dial and the two vertically equidistant subdials are like an incredibly classy Yin and Yang. The stainless steel bezel holds it all together, and the navy blue leather strap holds it all to your dad’s wrist. A wrist that he’s going to spend a lot of time looking at in the near future.

Every father deserves to feel like a king, and this is your chance to finally gift him the Big Crown he’s always wanted.
The key to unraveling the aesthetic of this striking watch is understanding its name. Mare Nostrum is latin for “Our Sea,” and it’s what the Romans called the Mediterranean. The dazzling blue dial, white and bronze hands, and aged-looking bronze bezel and case give the piece a decidedly classical Roman look, and the brown leather strap has a feeling of utility about it.
Dad will feel like he’s captaining a trireme when he wears it, and the two of you will stand at the bow ready to tackle any adventures the future might bring.

There’s no way around it. We all go through that period in our lives where we can’t think of anything more square than our poor ol’ dads. Why not commemorate that awkward time with something even squarer than he is?
This watch features the signature BR 03-92 squared case, but with a look that is anything but. Luminous silver hands and markers light up a pitch black dial and bezel. The locking crown sits snugly between two raised stainless steel guards and the black rubber band is as comfortable as it is functional, especially if your dad plans to make use of the 300 meter water resistance.
With this piece on his wrist, your dad will be the coolest square around.

Our fathers taught us that life is filled with unexpected complications, and they tempered our minds with the wisdom and knowledge to handle those complications as they arise.
To repay that fatherly kindness, get him a complication of his own. Or, rather, a watch with three of them.
This Chronomat has a lot going on. A yellow gold dial houses three subdials featuring a 1/4th second chronograph and 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers, all powered by the Automatic Self Winding Chronograph-Chronometer movement. The gold dial and bezel are answered by a polished stainless steel case and bracelet that really sets the classy tone.
