Whether he is a three-piece suit kind of man or a rugged guy who loves the great outdoors, here’s a selection of watches that can put a smile on his face.

TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper Chronograph Gold

For fathers who are adventurers at heart, the TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper Chronograph Gold will be perfect for them.

The original Skipper was created after the yacht Intrepid’s victory in the 1967 America’s Cup. Last year saw a beautiful stainless-steel model introduced – but it is probably this year’s rose gold version that will turn heads.

With a 39mm blue brushed dial, it is the perfect blend of a design that is both chic and classic.

Not only that, the dial references the iconic Skipper model 7754 of 1968. It features contrasting colours within the subdials: green, orange and teal blue, which reminds of Intrepid’s colour scheme.

The transparent caseback showcases the in-house Heuer 02 regatta-updated caliber with a new bidirectional rotor shaped like TAG Heuer’s iconic shield symbol. This movement with a vertical clutch operates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has an 80-hour power reserve.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300m ‘Paris 2024’ Special Edition

To celebrate the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics, Omega has released a special model for all sports fans. The Seamaster Diver 300m “Paris 2024” Special Edition is an ode to the occasion and comes with a winning touch of gold.

Gold is, after all, the material that every athlete dreams of.

Mounted on the 42mm case in stainless steel is a radiant bezel ring in 18K Moonshine Gold. It features a laser-structured diving scale polished and in positive relief, and for extra luminosity, a single dot of Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock.

There is also the white ceramic dial carrying a wave motif. The Paris 2024 logo can be seen on the seconds dial, and the date display is inscribed with the typography of this year’s games.

The back of the watch carries a stamped medallion showing the Olympic rings and the words “Paris 2024”.

Behind the caseback sits the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8800.

Both the exceptional movement and the entire watch have passed the eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), guaranteeing the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

Omega will be this year’s Olympic Games’ official timekeeper as well – which is the watchmaker’s 31st time in history, recording the dreams of the world’s best athletes.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport Titanium

For guys who prefer something more sleek but still sporty, look no further than the Zenith Chronomaster Sport Titanium.

This lightweight model, at 105 grams, 30% less than its steel equivalent is one good looking design.

The 41mm case has been given a silky, polished finish, while the grey sunburst dial reinterprets Zenith’s signature tricolour design. Inside there is an iconic star-shaped oscillating weight, which the brand says is a reminder for everyone to reach their dreams and make every moment count.

The latest version of the El Primero caliber, dubbed the El Primero 3600, operates at the high frequency of 5Hz, with the ability to offer a true 1/10th of a second indication. Its autonomy has also been efficiently extended to a power reserve of 60 hours.

Cortina Watch has partnered with Longines to introduce a limited edition of the HydroConquest GMT. Ideal for globetrotters, it has a separate 24-hour hand that points to a 24-hour inner dial flange, which indicates the second time zone.

This 41mm model will also turn heads with its green sunray dial paired with a matching rubber strap. It comes in a special box of dark wood and beige leather, plus a stainless steel bracelet and khaki green NATO strap.

Combining performance and elegance, the HydroConquest GMT is part of the water sports-inspired HydroConquest collection first launched in 2007.

Now, it is endowed with a new GMT complication, the first for the line – which allows users to tell the time of two time zones simultaneously, making the watch a perfect travel companion.

At the heart of the HydroConquest GMT is the exclusive Longines self-winding caliber L844.5. It is equipped with a silicon balance-spring to optimise timekeeping precision and is 10 times more resistant to magnetic fields than the ISO 764 benchmark standard.

Longines calls the movement “weekend-proof”, as its power reserve of up to 72 hours will allow users to set the watch aside on a Friday and wear it again on Monday without missing a beat.

As the name suggests, the watch also embodies a maritime spirit. Its 41 mm stainless steel case is equipped with a screw-in crown and a screw-in case back to ensure optimum water resistance up to 300 metres.

This special edition Longines HydroConquest GMT is online exclusive and available on

Cartier Santos De Cartier

In terms of being a recognisable classic, the Santos De Cartier draws eyes with its graceful yet masculine features.

The Santos De Cartier steel and gold model carries a mechanical movement with automatic winding Caliber 1847 MC.

It has a 40mm steel case with a bezel in yellow gold, a seven-sided crown set with a faceted synthetic blue spinel, an anthracite grey dial with satin-finish gradation, and sword-shaped hands in polished gold-plated steel.

The Cartier Santos watch was first created all the way back in 1904 for Alberto Santos-Dumont, a Brazilian aeronaut, sportsman and inventor who contributed to the early development of aircraft.

It has since lived on with various models released over the decades, remaining a favourite among stylish gents who crave adventure.

When it comes to fine watches, it is hard to go wrong, but finding the perfect model will certainly make this Father’s Day even more special.
