Buying Guides Just in Time for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is on June 19, and watch lovers will agree there isn’t a better gift than the perfect watch. But dads are notoriously hard to shop for—maybe even tougher than mom (remember Mother’s Day?). Luckily for you, Govberg has all the answers. Here’s a quick round up of watches for every type of father, whether you’re looking for Father’s Day gifts, birthday gifts or other occasions.

Watches for Dad

Oris Divers Sixty-Five

Blue Dial Oris Divers Sixty Five

Just in time for summer vacations, this Oris Divers watch features a vintage design that combines gray with a light “Deauville’ blue referencing the French seaside resort. The new dial complements the SuperLuminova numerals, indices and hands while upholding the style of the 1960s. Inside the 40mm stainless steel case is the automatic Oris caliber 733 (based on the Sellita SW200) with date. This watch has a black aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel and features water resistance to 100 meters. Watch our on the wrist review on YouTube of the Divers Sixty-Five.

Tudor Pelagos

The case is forged in titanium and to ensure the ultimate water resistance of 500 meters, it features a screw-down crown and helium escape valve. The in-house MT5612 is at the heart of this timepiece and to add freshness, a new blue hue is added to this extreme diving watch. Watch our on the wrist review on YouTube.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph date

Since July 21, 1969, when one of the first Omega Speedmaster Chronographs was worn on the lunar surface, this watch earned the nickname Moonwatch.

Bremont MBII – WH

MBII with White Dial from Bremont English Watches

Bremont offers high-flying style for the budding watch collector, the die-hard enthusiast and the flight school maverick. The MBII White is Bremont’s response to requests for a white-dial version of the timepiece the company designed as the quintessential British aviation chronometer. This new model features an aluminum case side that echoes the actual components on Martin-Baker ejection seats. The watch’s yellow and black loop at the end of the second hand is a direct reference to the Martin-Baker ejection pull handle. This is a COSC-certified chronometer and features Bremont’s own hardened stainless steel case construction.

Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Auto

The rugged Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Auto fits great for the dad who goes camping on the weekend and biking on the weekdays.
