Best luxury watches for Father’s Day 2024

It’s time to say a big thank you to the main man in your life. Whether that’s your dad, your uncle or your pops, you’re probably scratching your head to come up with a great gift for Father’s Day.

If you’re done with whisky, socks, meals out and trips away, we’ve rounded up some superb luxury watches to consider for Sunday, June 16.

So whether you’ve got a dapper dad or a funky uncle, we’ve got him covered.

Dapper dad ~ Santos de Cartier

If your dad appreciates sophistication and a vintage touch, the iconic Santos de Cartier watch will captivate him. 

This timepiece, with its distinctive square shape and visible screws, pays homage to the Parisian geometry of 1904. It embodies a refined sense of form, minimalism, precise proportions, and meticulous attention to detail.

We particularly admire the large steel model, featuring a mechanical movement with automatic winding, calibre 1847 MC. This classic Cartier piece also includes a seven-sided crown adorned with a faceted synthetic spinel, a silvered opaline dial, steel sword-shaped hands, and a steel bracelet with a SmartLink adjustment.

Suave dad ~ Omega Seamaster 300

This redesigned diving watch offers a budget-friendly option for sporty dads while retaining a vintage charm beneath the surface.

It boasts a thinner bezel made from anodized-treated aluminum for enhanced durability and features a state-of-the-art chronometer movement with Omega’s classic co-axial escapement.

The dial is a standout feature, showcasing a new sandwich concept with a base layer of Super Lumi-Nova and an upper plate with cutouts for recessed hour markers and vintage numerals.

Jet-setting Dad ~ Pilot’s watch timezoner Top Gun

If Dad is normally here, there and everywhere, he can’t be without this IWC, reference W395505. 

This model offers IWC’s proprietary Ceratanium material, a blend of titanium’s durability and ceramic’s scratch resistance and belongs to the Top Gun series of Pilot’s watches with the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner. 

This model features a 46 mm diameter, 15.1 mm thick matte jet-black case, water-resistant up to 60 meters with a screw-down crown. The black dial is framed by a ceramic city ring representing 24 major time zones. 

Powered by IWC’s automatic Caliber 82760, it includes a patented world-time function that allows for quick time, date, and 24-hour display adjustments by turning the city-ring bezel. The bezel enables the hour hand and 24-hour disk to move together for easy time zone changes, without affecting the minute hand. 

Sadly, it’s limited to 500 pieces, but a great gift if you spy it for sale.

All-action dad ~ Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

If dad’s idea of relaxation is plunging into chilly waters, we’ve got the perfect offering.

The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date features a 41mm stainless steel case with a bicolor ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel and a 3D relief etching of an iceberg and a scuba diver exploring the glacial seas below.

The watch is available in three dial colours: blue, green, and black, each depicting different colours of glacial ice from across the world, and it comes with an adjustable V-shaped stainless-steel bracelet that can be swiftly and simply swapped out for a rubber strap.

Sporty Dad ~ Chopard Alpine Eagle XL Chronograph

Time-only watches have their charm, but if dad loves his sports, a chronograph is essential. Chopard recognised this by expanding its Alpine Eagle collection this fall to include a 44mm XL Flyback Chronograph. 

Encased in Chopard’s proprietary Lucent Steel A223, this timepiece features an integrated bracelet reminiscent of the retro style of the 1980 St. Moritz watch. 

The watch is powered by the chronometer-certified automatic 03.05-C movement, which includes a flyback function and operates on a fully integrated column-wheel system, considered the gold standard for chronographs.
