Father Needs a Watch

There is nothing like a proud Dad wearing a watch he got for Father's Day. Forget about ties, LED flashlights, weird obscure tools, socks, a key chain from Niagara Falls. Get him a watch. A watch he will love. One that will befit his personality, hobbies and image.

If Dad always wears a suit - even on the weekend, then a vibrant yellow sporty watch probably will not be the best idea. You need a watch crafted from a solid metal like gold, platinum, steel or a combination. If dad hates clutter, he would want a watch with a simple dial without subdials. If you have run into some money then add a complication like a tourbillon or perpetual calender.
Excellent watches for "no nonsense, clutter hating Dad's", would be Movado's (really affordable and instantly recognizable). The Museum Collection have completely bare dials with only a gold shimmering dot at the 12 'o'clock. The "dot at the top" watch face is for a determined person who always has is goal in sight. If Dad is that sort than peruse through the large range of Movado men's watches at THE WATCHERY.

Okay now what if Dad is the "not so serious type". Yes he has embarrassed you more than once in front of your friends. Like the time he jumped fully clothed into the pool during your pool party. OMG, you could have died, or the time he came to "take your Dad to school day" with two different pairs of socks or the time he forgot about an egg he was boiling (and this is the exact reason why mom hates him in the kitchen) until the egg actually exploded onto the ceiling.
Well Dad is full of fun and you love him to bits, and that's why you have saved up quite a bit of dough to get him the best Father's Day gift ever. I suggest a Corum Bubble. Some Corum dials are quite hair raising: Skulls, bats, evil dark things and such, but that's up to you - you know Dad best. But the domed bubble covering the dial adds a sense of fun to ones image. Besides Corum is an excellent brand. Now if Dad loves to boat - even gets up 4am on Sunday then the Corum Admiral Cup is perfect. In this collection Nautical Flags emblazon the dial or bezel (depending on the watch), and you could almost smell the slightly salty slightly fishy smell of the ocean and feel the fine spray against your cheek.

What about a sporty Dad? One who loves the vroom of racing cars careening round tight bends. Well then the options are endless. I will guide you through a few of them. Tag Heuer is renowned for its Formula 1 Collection. The energy of this collection is palpable. Another great choice which has always reminded me of revved up monster trucks - and if Dad likes big machines, he will go gaga over this collection - Zenith Men's Defy Xtreme. These watches run upwards of $10,000 and deftly fuse titanium and rubber. Some harbor mind boggling tourbillons. I am telling you this, if you get Dad a Zenith Men's Defy Xtreme this year, next year Dad will be happy with his pair of socks, because giving Dad a Defy Xtreme is giving Dad a watch for life. Another excellent sporty watch is a Tissot T-touch, very gadgety and technologically advanced.

If Dad still drives his old clunker from the 1970's and has Mom mend his socks than don't go spending a fortune on his watch. Seiko is an excellent brand with really affordable long lasting watches. Available in a wide range of styles, you are sure to pick out the perfect watch for Dad.

Stop your "high powered jet setting CEO Dad" in his tracks with a Girard-Perregaux World Timer WW.TC Perpetual Calender. This beaut tracks the time of countless cities all over the world, even indicating night or day. If Dad sits in the pilot seat rather than business class then a Breitling Men's Cockpit is the obvious choice. If Dad is in the military (and I salute him) then he will absolutely love the IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition Top Gun or a watch from the U-Boat Collection. One thing about U-boat is its dial is highly discernible in adverse conditions even in the flat light beneath the ocean.

Before you spend the money, strike up a conversation with Dad. Steer it towards watches and see what he says. You never know, maybe he has been yearning for a Cartier Santos, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak or a Concord Delirium. Whatever the watch, you know where to get it - THE WATCHERY, because at THE WATCHERY our watches are priced way below the MSRP so you and Dad get more watch for your money.

Blazing Hot New Watches at THE WATCHERY

Bubble Night Flyer
40% off at THE WATCHERY
Your first stop in luxury watches

This blog is a tad to early for Halloween, but riveting none the less. Corum seriously knows how to send shivers up ones spine. I was just about to blog about THE WATCHERY's vast U-Boat Collection, when this creepy Corum watch snagged my attention. The name Night Flyer dredged up my memory of Steven King's movie of the same name. In fact the monster even resembled Corum's terrifying dial depiction.
Corum's Night Flyer is set beneath a scratch resistant sapphire crystal dome - a signature feature of Corum's Bubble Watches.
The second hand is a sword scimitar (curved swords used by pirates) dipped in red to portray blood. A demonic blood red eye glowers from the skull creating a terrifying image. Come to think of it, this watch is not for the faint at heart. Beneath the dial is an automatic mechanical movement which incorporates a rotor allowing for the watch to be wound by the gentle swinging motion of ones arm. Blood red skeletonized hands indicate the time. The Corum Key is prominently displayed between the 3 and 6 'o'clock position. The round 18k gold case and red stitched black leather strap completes the watch design.

The name Corum stems from the word “quorum” which means “the minimum number of persons present, required to enable a meeting, to hold discussions and take valid decisions”.
Corum symbol - the key- emblazons every watch, a testament to opening new doors of creativity, innovation, watch design and possibilities. There is always a new door to open and the mystery of time can never be completely unraveled.

Water resistant to 200 meters, one can show ones dark side at a cheery pool party. I cannot say if the watch will attract a girl or send her trotting.

The watch comes with a Certificate from the Chairman of Corum.
