Take time this Father’s Day to look for the perfect gift for your Dad. Investing in a good timepiece is like buying a great suit. A watch should make the wearer feel more confident and make his outfit feel complete. Think about your Dad’s image and what his style says about him. Whether he is smart with a love of classic design or sporty man on the move, what better time to buy your Dad a watch that he’s always wanted?
As a father himself, Christopher Ward has prepared a Father’s Day gift guide with everything you need. A watch makes a great present as you are guaranteed that it won’t be left in a box until this time next year.

Moving away from round face watches, why not mix it up with a square face design that he will love. Seiko watches are great as they vary in price and make a thoughtful fashion watch gift.

Seiko invented the quartz watch in 1969 and have been a pioneer in the industry ever since. Seiko was also one of the first brands to offer solar powered watches at inexpensive prices.
