Father's Day Five Stylish Timepieces for Father’s Day
If you are looking for inspiration for Father’s Day, here is WorldTempus’ timepiece selection to impress your dad
Father’s Day has never really received the same enthusiasm as Mother’s Day, perhaps because the flower and chocolate industries have never really gotten behind offering their wares to the male population. This could be an opportunity for the watch world to put forward watches as the gift of choice for Father’s Day. Let’s start the movement with this selection of wristwatches.
Alpina Seastrong Diver Automatic Calanda
The Alpina Seastrong Diver Automatic Calanda is the latest timepiece from Alpina that was launched just last week for World Ocean Day. It is the brand’s most sustainable watch to date with a case made of 100% recycled stainless steel made by Thyssen Krupp’s ultra-high grade recycled PuReSteel that is among the finest on the market. The bracelet is made from recycled plastic bottles and the packaging is crafted from PET recycled plastic. If your father loves the ocean and sustainability, then this could be an excellent choice.

Arnold & Son Nebula 41.5 Steel
For fathers who appreciate something a little different, how about this Arnold & Son Nebula 41.5 Steel timepiece with its skeleton movement in grey and blue tones? This mix of steel and blue PVD on the bridges brings a highly contemporary look to the timepiece. It is also ultra-thin at 8.73 mm, making it particularly elegant on the wrist, and comes fitted with a choice of a three-link steel bracelet or a blue ballistic-type rubber strap.

Carl F. Bucherer Heritage Bicompax Annual Hometown Editions
When it comes to gift-giving, it is often the thought and effort that goes into the gift-finding process that makes the receiver smile the most. So, if your father lives, or was born, in one of these cities – New York, Tokyo, Mumbai, London, Paris, Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Geneva, St. Gallen, Zermatt, Bern, Basel, Zurich, or Lucerne – why not offer him a timepiece that celebrates his city with an engraving on the caseback that he will think was made just for him!

Eberhard & Co. Zagor Limited Edition
If your father loves comic books, the Eberhard & Co. Zagor Limited Edition would be an excellent choice. Zagor was brought to life by author Guido Nolitta (aka Sergio Bonelli) and illustrator Gallieno Ferri in 1961 and has been entertaining readers with his strength and talent at the service of the greater good ever since. This limited-edition timepiece celebrates Zagor’s 60th anniversary and features his Thunder Bird on the dial within the seconds counter and an engraving of his axe on the caseback. If your dad is a superhero, look no further!

Maurice Lacroix Aikon #Tide Special Edition FIBA 3X3
Following the launch of the Maurice Lacroix Aikon #Tide released earlier this year that you can read about here, the brand has just unveiled three new special editions for their collaboration with the 3X3 global basketball organisation. Made of ocean-bound upcycled plastic, this timepiece not only looks good, it is also playing its part in cleaning up the oceans with 17 plastic bottles used to make its case and packaging. So, if your father is a basketball fan, this could be the perfect Father’s Day gift.
