Father’s Day is June 18th, so now is the time to start looking for the perfect present for dad. This year, give him a sophisticated watch for work, or a more laid back style for play. A new watch is a fantastic present because it is something he can enjoy every day of the year. Every time he looks at his timepiece, it will remind him of you and your love!

Here is a look at two select men’s watch designers we love for Father’s Day.

Rolex

Rolex has always commanded a special place in the horological world, especially when it comes to men’s watches. Sophisticated, dignified and exquisitely engineered, few watches can compete with Rolex. These are timepieces designed to last a life time. Here are a few interesting facts about Rolex that sets it apart from the rest:

  • Rolex timepieces are still made by hand
  • Rolex watches are all carefully tested before leaving the factory
  • Rolex had developed its own chromium alloy, which is hyper resistant to pitting
  • Rolex has its own foundry for the gold and platinum it uses in its watches
  • Rolex is privately owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation which was established in 1944. The foundation owns all the shares of Rolex

Audemars Piguet

Audemars Piguet has been making luxury Swiss watches since 1875. Headquartered out of Le Brassus, Switzerland, Audemars Piguet has the distinction of growing while other watch makers are shrinking. Today Audemars Piguet has two additional locations in Switzerland dedicated to the manufacture of their watches, namely, Audemars Piguet Rebaud et Papi (APRP) located in Le Locle and Centror, a case making company, located in Meyrin-Geneva. Some interesting facts about Audemars Piguet watches include:

  • Audemars Piguet timepieces have been manufactured without interruption since 1875
  • Many Audemars Piguet watches feature an accurate perpetual calendar which will not need adjustment until the year 2100
  • Audemars Piguet timepieces are famous for their moon phases but they also make the world’s first watch to also accurately track the sunrise and sunset times determined by the location of the watch’s owner.
  • Audemars Piguet’s escapement has a frequency of 43,200, nearly double that of most escapements for precision time keeping
  • Audemars Piguet’s Tourbillon enables these mechanical watches to accurately track time to within one-fifth of a second.
