For the Engineer

If he’s the type to be tinkering with household gadgets and effortlessly changing tyres, he will undoubtedly be impressed with this Fossil watch, which features an eye-popping mix of sub-dials and openwork details. If you can’t convince him on the rose tone, this piece is also available in a brown and silver combination.

For the Adventurer

This Pilot watch by Hugo Boss has just the right balance of vintage style, rose gold tone and classic brown and silver shades. It’s also water resistant to 50m, just in case his adventures lead to sailing, scuba diving…or the paddling pool in the back garden.

For the Sportsman

Watch brand Festina is an avid supporter of global cycling, so any dad with a penchant for pedals is automatically going to be intrigued. This stainless steel bracelet watch may be simple, but the splash of blue on the dial is enough to make it eye-catching.

For the Traditionalist

This smart, classic watch is ideal for a dad who’s rushing between the office, the gym, the back garden and the local pub. He’ll love the fact that it’s a stylish and sporty chronograph…and you’ll love the price.

For the Dapper Gent

If your dad has a keen interest in style, from the shine of his shoes to the type of skinny tie he wears, then this is a great watch for his collection. The black dial offers just the right amount of interest, while the steel case is versatile enough to match all his suits.
