Christmas is coming, and the cries of dads everywhere are starting up.
“Please don’t buy me socks again,” they say.
Don’t you think your dad deserves something a little more special this year? If you’re looking for the perfect gift that will really make Dad smile, you’ve found it in Goldsmiths’ range of beautiful watches. Go on – give Dad the gift you know he deserves.
To aid your Christmas shopping, we at Goldsmiths have selected our top three watches for our top three kinds of dad – the seafarer, the petrol head and the tech-lover. Which would suit your dad best?
For the Seafaring Dad: Omega Seamaster 300M Men’s Watch
The Omega Seamaster is perfect for any dad who just can’t keep away from the ocean. For starters, it’s water resistant all the way down to 300M, so whether Dad loves to be on the boat or diving far below the surface, the Seamaster has what it takes to withstand his lifestyle. The bracelet is made from tough stainless steel that will stand up to the elements while looking great on sea-salted skin, while the matching blue dial gives the watch an elegant, timeless quality that Dad will love. And just in case you’re worried that Dad is going to forget the next important date – your birthday – there’s a date window to keep him on the ball.
For the Petrol Head Dad: Tissot V8 Men’s Watch
Taking inspiration from motorsport, the Tissot V8 men’s watch has all the bells and whistles – a chronograph for time measurement, stopwatch functionality, the date and, of course, the all-important time. The bracelet is made from durable stainless steel and the black dial gives the watch a chic, classic feel that will give Dad that extra bit of class when he’s dressing up or down. The Tissot V8 model will appeal to an adrenaline-loving father with a need for speed.
For the Tech Loving Dad: Gucci I-Gucci XXL Men’s Watch
For the Dad who can’t stop staring at his iPhone comes the Gucci I-Gucci XXL digital men’s watch. This timepiece has a completely fresh look with black digital dial display that lets him choose between fancy orange digits or hands. Strapped to his wrist with a black rubber strap, this Gucci masterpiece is multi-functional – there’s options for a second time zone, a pedometer for running or walking, a dual chronograph to compare times, and even a function to aid Dad when he’s out on the water. The sailing function helps skipper carefully line up at the beginning of a yacht race and will count down those precious five minutes before the race begins; after that, the chronograph is activated automatically. So if you’ve got a dad who loves stats, times and all things digital, the Gucci I-Gucci XXL is the right pick for him.
So there you have it – the top watches available at Goldsmiths for your Dad this Christmas. Goldsmiths is the home of top watch brands such as Tag Heur, Emporio Armani and Citizen, and interest-free credit on all purchases over five hundred pounds.
