Buying a Watch for Dad

Dads are notoriously difficult to buy for especially at important times such as Christmas and birthdays. In fact, gift buying can often be left to the last minute rush because they don’t really know what to get. If you are having trouble thinking of what to buy then you could, of course, settle on the usual old dad staples:

  • Socks that end up with holes in them.
  • The Christmas jumper that only gets worn once.
  • That ‘World’s Best Dad’ mug that makes him feel old.
  • An interesting tie that isn’t quite suitable for the office or any other special occasion for that matter.
  • The latest largely useless man gadget that will sit at the back of the wardrobe for the next 20 years.

If you don’t want to buy dad the traditional pair of socks or joke mug and want a gift that really says something special, then perhaps a high quality watch at a price you can afford is the best option.  

Why? First of all, most dads are old enough to remember when watches were actually important. They carry a hint of nostalgia for times gone by and they’re also great fashion accessories whether for social occasions or for business. Watches bring a sense of purpose and organisation into an often calamitous world. Dad also likes looking at his watch, especially where kids are concerned. You may not have any concept of time keeping but he certainly does.

Finally, you can also get a watch engraved on the back with a special message that says everything that needs to said about your relationship.

The good news is that Thomas & George have a stylish set of watches to choose from at a cost which won’t break your budget and are ideal for the father figure in your life.

The first of these is the sophisticated and elegant Kingman 43 which retails at just £69.99. It has a stunning rose gold case and outer rim surrounding a jet black dial with three interior circular displays for minutes, seconds and 1/10 seconds, as well as the traditional date counter. With the black leather strap this is the kind of watch that will make any dad very happy.

The Ottawa 43 has a similar design but different colour combination – the rose gold this time is paired with a cool white clock face and combined with a slim but fashionable brown leather strap.

Finally, there’s the Bakersfield with its distinctly classical look. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this watch, it harks back to a time when design could be understated as well as aesthetically pleasing. The watch comes with black and brown straps to suit almost any occasion and is the perfect gift for Christmas or a birthday.

All our watches at Thomas & George are delivered free of charge and come with a 2 year warranty. The key to any gift, of course, is making it personal. We also offer low cost engraving for just £9.99 so you can add your own message onto the back of the watch you have chosen.
