One of the favorite gift alternatives of the upcoming Father’s Day is undoubtedly the watches. We handpicked four different models for you which could be the best Father’s Day gift.
My choice regarding the father’s day gift alternatives is the Arnold & Son Globetrotter model which is one of the novelties that marked the Baselworld 2018 fair. The most striking aspect of the model, which is presented in a stainless steel case measuring 45mm in diameter, is its dial which looks more like a miniature artwork. The dial is a visual feast, offering a unique display of the model’s world time feature. The model which gets a full score in terms of both price, brand prestige and segment, is powered by the in-house Caliber A&S6022 automatic movement that offers a 45-hour power reserve when fully wound. The movement, which is fully decorated and equipped with a perforated oscillating rotor, is enjoyable through the sapphire crystal case back. The model is offered on a black alligator strap.

My father’s day gift choice comes from the well-established Swiss watchmaker Longines, which is known with its excellent price/performance ratio models and stunning Heritage inspired timepieces. The model, Longines Hydroconquest Ref. L3.7188.8.131.52, that I chose from the highly acclaimed Hydroconquest Collection is offered in a 41mm diameter stainless steel case which is equipped with a beige/gray tone ceramic insert bezel. The 300 meters water resistant timepiece that comes with a SunRay surface pattern dial finished beautifully in matching gray tone, provides a unique wrist presence thanks to its color scheme supported further with its rubber strap which is designed in harmony with the overall color palette. Ticking with the self-winding Caliber Ref. L888.2 which comes forward with its 64 hour power reserve, the model is also available with a stainless steel bracelet as well.

The model that I chose for the father’s day gift alternatives is the Frederique Constant Classic Manufacture Worldtimer model. The model is offered in a stainless steel case measuring 42mm x 12.10mm. The most remarkable aspect of the timepiece, which is also available with a pink gold plated case option, is its dial hosting a stunningly designed world map and classic Guilloche patterns. Nowadays, there are a few brands like Frederique Constant which can offer the in-house movement asset combined with excellent craftsmanship with a relatively low MSRP. The model is powered with the Caliber FC-718. 26 jewels self-winding movement beats at 28.800vph and offers a power reserve of 42 hours. Moreover, the sapphire crystals applied to both sides and genuine alligator strap are exceedingly satisfactory details in terms of both visual and comfort.

My choice for the father’s day gift alternatives is a sporty model that is available in 4000,00 EUR price range. The Autobahn Collection, which is introduced at the Baselworld 2018 exhibition, comes from one of the boutique German brands of the watchmaking industry, NOMOS. The model I chose, which is designed in classic Bauhaus style that became more like a signature for the brand, is offered in a 41mm diameter stainless steel case and three different dial options. One of the most striking features of the model is the lines positioned between 8 and 4 o’clock. Thanks to this detail, it is a great pleasure to look at the dial in darker environments. Inspired by the world famous German motorways with no speed limit, the model is powered by the brand’s manufacture movement Caliber Neomatic DUW6101.
