Spinnaker watches are steeped in the history of diving timepieces and influenced by aquatic themes. From their range, the Croft stands out to me as it’s got a large bold design that is still subtle enough to throw on with a casual outfit.  With a cyclops date magnifier and seconds subdial display, the watch has a 22mm stainless steel bracelet and utilizes Japan 8218 Miyota Automatic movement.

Although their watches are reasonably priced with the Croft coming in at $400USD, you can score an extra discount for Father’s Day with a 20% discount using promo code DAD20. Available at Spinnaker

AVI-8 was established in 2012 with the goal of creating timepieces that reflect the history of aviation. AVI-8 works with pilots and engineers who served in various Air Forces around the world to create products that bring authentic military detailing . One of my favorites from the line is this classic chronograph which has an aesthetic based around what might arguably be the most iconic plane from the WW2 era, the Hawker Hurricane .  Anyone who’s seen that aircraft in the history books or movies will recognize the clean, bold lines which surround the dial on on the watch. The colors and graphics also celebrate the fighter plane’s unique presence.

This Hawker Hurricane watch has a classic chronograph design and is constructed with stainless steel and strapped with a genuine hand-stitched grey leather strap. The movement on the watch is provided by Japan Quartz and it features adjustable date functionality. It’s a fantastic gift idea for Father’s Day if your dad is a military buff.

Available at AVI-8

Shopping for a watch can be a unique challenge especially when you’re trying to keep within a budget. There’s countless options on the market but one brand to take note of should be Nordgreen. Based in Copenhagen, the brand uses a minimalistic design language that reflects its geographic origins. The Danish company offers up a selection of timepieces at a pricepoint that won’t break the bank.

My favorite design from the brand has to be the Pioneer , which is a medium sized (42mm) chronograph design that uses Japanese quartz movement. While I’m partial to the silver mesh strap , I do like the option of removable straps which drastically change the look and feel of the design. The NATO style green canvas and 3-link options are close runner ups. Nordgreen has also pledged to give back to worthy causes worldwide through their “Giving Back Program” as well as to being accountable to certain sustainability standards.

Prices for the Pioneer comes in 3 colors (black, white and rose gold ) and starts at $299USD depending on the strap option and are available to order online
