Rolex Datejust ref. 126300
Possibly the most famous creation from certainly the most famous watchmaker, the Rolex Datejust is practically an essential. The one watch that does it all, it can be an everyday wear or the piece brought out only on special occasions, pairing equally well with everything from jeans and t-shirt to a tailored tuxedo.
There are several outstanding examples of the ref. 126300 featured in our sale, but this black dialed version is an absolute beauty. Classically understated, it is forged in incredibly tough 904L stainless steel with a smooth, highly polished bezel. The bracelet is Rolex’s celebrated three-link Oyster, and inside the generous 41mm case beats one of the latest generations of the brand’s industry-leading movements, the Caliber 3235.
Whether it is his first Rolex or his fifteenth, you can’t go wrong with this Rolex Datejust on Father’s Day.
Omega Speedmaster 145.022
Speaking of legends, the Omega Speedmaster is another name embedded in horology folklore. One of the most important timepieces ever made, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch will forever be remembered as the first watch worn on the surface of the moon.
The Speedy featured in our Father’s Day sale is an example of the 145.022 series that first debuted in 1968, a classic vintage piece still in exceptional condition. The steel case measures 42mm and is topped with the Speedmaster’s iconic black tachymeter bezel. Driving the watch and its sub-dials (laid out in classic tri-compax form) is the Omega Caliber 861 movement, which was introduced for this iteration of the world-renowned chronograph.
A stunning model at a great price, this Omega Speedmaster is the ideal choice for the dad who appreciates a watch with a timeless design and a fascinating history.
Rolex Daytona ref. 116500LN
The best watch money can’t buy. The Rolex Daytona is a phenomenon, the most sought after model on the planet with waiting lists for brand new examples stretching off for years. The piece we have featured in our Father’s Day Collection sale is from the series with possibly the highest demand of them all; the ref. 116500LN, complete with the highly desirable Cerachrom bezel.
Enduringly handsome, the black dial features a trio of chronograph counters with contrasting outer rings, all housed inside a 40mm stainless steel case and powered by Rolex’s own Caliber 4130 – recognized as one of the finest movements of its type ever made.
A truly legendary name in watchmaking, this Rolex Daytona is every dad’s dream watch this Father’s Day.
Patek Philippe 5134P Calatrava Travel Time
Simply the last word in sleek and tasteful dress watches, the Calatrava from Patek Philippe has been the standard bearer for refined elegance since it was first introduced in 1937. It is a range which has diversified greatly over the generations, and the early 2000s brought us this – the reference 5134P.
Effortlessly sophisticated, the graceful lines of the 36mm case are forged in shimmering platinum, making this a particularly rare variant. The travel time complication, courtesy of the hand wound Caliber 215 PS FUS 24H movement, features a 24-hour display at the top of the silver dial, and a synchronized dual-time function. The black-oxidized gold main hour hand can be advanced in one hour jumps by pressing the uppermost pusher on the left side of the case, and back again with the lower. Behind it is a second hour hand, in white gold, that stays set to home time.
Both exquisite and striking, this Patek Philippe 5134P Calatrava is for dads who like to arrive in style.
Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 326135
The latest all-new release from Rolex is also their most complicated watch yet, and one that has a huge amount to offer. With its beautifully polished 42mm case capped with a fluted bezel, it remains as distinguished as a Day-Date, but manages to pack in both a GMT function as well as the Rolex’s first ever annual calendar complication.
The example featured in our Father’s Day Collection sale is forged in Rolex’s own 18k pink gold alloy, known as Everose, complete with a deep chocolate dial, and fitted on a tobacco brown leather strap. All together, it gives the entire watch a rich warmth and a truly luxurious feel.
The brilliance of the in-house Caliber 9001 movement means that all the Sky-Dweller’s functions can be controlled with just the Ring Command bezel and the winding crown, with no need of extra pushers to spoil the elegant lines of the case. On its face, the unorthodox GMT disc comes in black to add a little contrast, with its pointer triangle above in red and white for a pop of color.
A wonderfully capable and highly versatile watch, this Rolex Sky-Dweller is the ultimate travel companion.
To make sure dad gets his perfect watch in time, be sure to order from our Father’s Day Collection sale by June 13th
