Panerai Submersible Goldtech
Combining the robust design of the Submersible with the elegance of rose gold, the PAM974 is just as fitting under a dress shirt as it is under water. This timepiece can be worn on the weekend without worry, and then paired with a business casual look during the week to complete any sharp dresser’s style!
“This is a real man’s watch! The bold styling and oversized gold case make this Submersible a fitting addition to any modern man’s wardrobe.“
– John Carter
Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5196G
My pick for a Father’s Day gift would be this pre-owned Patek Philippe Ref. 5196G. The Calatrava showcases a timeless aesthetic that, aside from a larger case size, has remained virtually unchanged since its introduction in 1932. Known for its minimalistic design, it is the textbook definition of a classic wristwatch.
“I love this watch for its timeless design and versatility! It is a great dress watch for formal attire, but it looks equally as good with a t-shirt and jeans.“
– Shawn McKenney
1982 Rolex GMT-Master
This vintage Rolex GMT-Master might be the ideal gift for the watch collecting dad. It has that vintage character and patina while incorporating modern features, and it is a great wearable size at 40mm. Showcasing a blue and red “Pepsi” bezel, the Ref. 16750 is a watch on many vintage collectors’ wish lists.
“I chose this Ref. 16750 because it is an iconic model from a legendary brand. Plus, if Dad was born in 1982, that’s the icing on the cake!“
– Dustin Reed
Originally designed to protect the watch crystal from getting cracked during Polo matches, the Reverso from Jaeger-LeCoultre features a reversible dial that has created the signature look of these timepieces. The reverse side of the case is a blank canvas awaiting a monogram or personalized engraving for dad!
“I chose this Reverso because it retains a sense of vintage inspiration while having a very modern look. Its classic shape and elegant design are the perfect pairing!“
– Troy Snyder
Panerai Luminor Marina 1950
I selected this Panerai because the 44mm size sits really nicely on the wrist and the sandwich dial construction adds a nice visual depth to the dial. This Luminor Marina is a great transitionary timepiece, allowing him to go right from work to the weekend without switching watches!
“My favorite part of Panerai watches is the ability to easily change straps. I like to match my watches to outfit, and Panerai has a huge selection of strap colors and materials.“
