Father’s Day is just around the corner and in need of some inspiration on what to get for Dad? Fret not, LUXUO is here to give you a hand in picking up the best gift for the best friend and mentor in your life. From classy watches to preppy fashion offerings and whisky, LUXUO spotlight the top 10 items to cop this year.
The Tonda GT Line first launched in 2020 was the brand’s first-ever luxury sports watch and a stark departure from its usual form and price. Continuing the success of the models released last year, the brand has released two new models to join the Tonda GT Line family: The Tondagraph GT Steel Silver Black and The Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Silver Black. Aside from the two different colours available, what unites these two exquisite watches are the updated teardrop-shaped lugs, an integrated bracelet in the same material and finishes as the case, and fluted bezel that traced back to the renowned Toric series. The dials feature the clou triangulaire guilloché motif and is supplemented with a trio of black subdials, the monochromatic style makes it versatile for any occasions that dad might have installed.
Without a doubt, dads are one of the most hardworking persons you will ever meet in your life. They toil silently, not expecting anything in return but the best for their children. Show your appreciation to them with the Harry Winston Ocean Moon Phase Automatic 42mm in white gold. With a total of 91 baguette cut diamonds encrusting both the case and part of the bracelet, the gemstones represent the undying love you have for your dad.
Taking inspiration from the Colosseum, the B.zero1 presents the perfect gift for dad for its use of off-kilter material such as black ceramic at the centre and surrounded by 18kt rose gold — making it extremely durable and stylish, just like the renowned amphitheatre.
Well, bracelets aren’t usually the go-to for most guys but there is an exception: Tiffany & Co. Makers I.D. Chain Bracelet. You can personalise this bracelet with your dad’s name or even inscribe a short message for him. If dad finds this too bare, he could also pair it with a Tiffany watch to complete the look.
Scents play a pivotal role in forming memories and this is backed up by numerous research. The fresh cologne that dad used to put before he heads out for work becomes a familiar whiff that brings comfort to us — subtly acknowledging his presence. While that same fragrance may give us the reassurance we need that dad is alway there, why not create new memories with him instead? The Hermes H24 fits the bill of a lively, sensual and bright perfume with its melange of aromatic, sweet and metallic notes. Not to mention, the entire bottle, from its packing downright to the ink used, was made with recycled materials.
Looking at dad, you must be wondering how time has passed so quickly. It felt like just yesterday that we were still in his embrace and looking up at his face, our earliest memories of him would be his youthful appearance. Though he still looks the same… albeit slightly aged, we can slow down the process of aging with the RevitaKey™ Technology, which helps to amplify collagen and elastic production. All he needs to do is to apply the cream right after he washes his face, and he will be looking as radiant as ever.
Lounging at home is now a norm due to the ongoing pandemic where most of us are told to refrain from going out unnecessarily. Help your dad to elevate the experience of staying in with the newly released Homewear Kit from Dior which comes with a pair of slippers, eye mask, scarf and a pouch — comfort and elegance is not compromised with this kit from the French Maison.
For the hypebeast Dads out there, the LV Trainers will surely not disappoint and we recommend the one from the brand’s SS21 collection because you can never go wrong with a black and white combination… and you could also share this pair with him (shhh… we didn’t say anything).
A nice bottle of whisky is always welcomed and the Macallan Double Cask 18 Years Old is for the most discerning connoisseur who would appreciate the complexities of ginger, toffee and spices such as cloves and nutmeg. These flavour profiles are due to the double casks used in maturing the blend. The Europe cask gives a touch of spice while the America, contributes subtly sweet aromas of vanilla. Nothing beats unwinding the day with a glass of whisky.
The dad who is a bit of a rebel and is an adventurer at heart (A trip to Milan? No thanks, he wants to go horseback riding in Abruzzo) will appreciate The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year Old. They have been matured in traditional oat whisky casks before being ported to casks that previously held Caribbean rum. The taste? Vanilla and sweet oak. The character? Incredibly fruity. The mood of the bottle? Audacious just like how dad is going to want to drink it.
