IWC – IW358304 Portugieser Automatic 40

The IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 is great value for money. We have included this watch in our pick for fathers day gifts due to what this timepiece offers for the price you pay. The IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 is a great dress watch with a case size of 40mm. It also offers a clean silver plated dial with contrasting blue hour indexes. A small seconds counter at 6 o’clock has paved the way for the normal seconds hand you would normally find in dress watches. The IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 features the robust, high-quality movement; IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre. The 82200 calibre puts out a power reserve of upto 60 hours, not that it’ll matter as it’ll be hard to put down!

Breitling Superocean Heritage ‘57

The Breitling SuperOcean Heritage ‘57 is one of the latest releases from the brand this year. This model pays homage to Breitling’s original 1957 SuperOcean and the laid-back surfer lifestyle in that era. While this certainly can be a dress watch, its also right at home being a sport model with the concave bidirectional bezel and oversized hour indices on the dial. The watch comes available in a variety colours from blue, black, 18k red gold to rainbow coloured. The watch is also available in a variety of straps from black, brown, gold calfskin leather, to the iconic Breitling stainless steel mesh bracelet. The Breitling SuperOcean Heritage ‘57 is power by the brands own calibre 10 movement, putting out a power reserve of approx 42 hours.

Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm

The Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm is watch with a lot of history behind it. This timepiece is presented as luxury and beauty moulded into one.

From the tri-counter layout to a clear display, the new Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph is great for those that love racing inspired timepieces.

Oris X Momotaro

Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 update

Nomos’s Tangente Neomatik 41 is another great pick for father’s day present. Why? It’s clean, minimalistic while displaying everything one needs from a dress watch. This iconic Nomos timepiece has just recently got an upgrade, with the stand out feature being the date ring around the outer edge of the dial. This timepiece along with the classic Tangente has won several awards within the watchmaking world. Much like the IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 we picked earlier, the Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 has the second hand removed, with the constant seconds being shown on the 6 o’clock counter. The movement powering the Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 is the DUW 6101 automatic calibre, giving out a power output of approximately 42 hours.

Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A384

The Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A384 is the return of a chronograph legend, as it has quite a special place in Zenith’s El Primero history. The original 1969 Zenith reference A384 model was the very first watch from the brand to showcase the high-frequency automatic chronograph “El Primero” movement. The original model was also the first to feature the unique but stylish Gay Frères steel ladder bracelet. This 1969 model has now been faithfully created to showcase almost every aesthetic detail the original had. The only difference being the El Primero movement getting upgraded, which now includes a power reserve of 50 hours approximately. Watchadvice has done a full in depth review of this timepiece and its importance in Zenith’s history. Check out the review and full pictures here

  • Reference: 03.A384.400/21.M384
  • Size : 37mm

  • Water resistance : 50m
  • Power reserve: Approximately 50 hrs

Panerai Luminor Due – 38mm

A father’s day list wouldn’t be complete without a classic Panerai model. Panerai Luminor Due is simplistic yet gorgeous to look at. The previous Panerai Luminor models had oversized cases (44mm, 47mm etc) that wouldn’t cater to most of the general public. However, with the watch now being released in 38mm, its an ideal contender for a everyday lifestyle watch. Having a beautiful sun-brushed blue dial with contrasting gold indices and hands certainly help as well. The movement inside the Panerai Luminor Due is the brands in-house P.900 calibre, which gives out a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. Watchadvice also had the chance to do a full in-depth review with beautiful pictures on this particular timepiece, which you can find the link here.

  • Reference:PAM00926
  • Size : 38mm
  • Dial: Blue sun-brushed with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers
  • Water resistance : 30m
  • Power reserve: Approximately 72 hrs
  • Australian Retail Price: $10,200.00
