The countdown to Father’s Day has begun. If you have decided to present your father with a luxury watch, we suggest that you turn it into a more thoughtful gift by pairing the timepiece with an allied accessory. Here are some pairing options you can try.
Omega Speedmaster Super Racing and 007 Cufflinks
The Omega Speedmaster Super Racing watch features a Spirate™ system – ‘Spirate’ being a portmanteau word formed from ‘spiral’ and ‘rate’ – which allows for ultra-fine rate adjustments. The watch is housed in a 44.25 mm stainless steel case and boasts a yellow-and-black honeycomb-pattern dial. The outer periphery of the dial has a racing-style minute track and a black ceramic bezel ring with a tachymeter scale in yellow grand feu enamel. The colour is also found on the gradient side for the chronograph hand, the striped small seconds hand, and the 12-hour counter, which also doubles up as the second time zone, and the date window at 6 o'clock. Inside the case is calibre 9920, with a 60-hour power reserve.
A perfect suit needs perfect cufflinks. Omega's round stainless steel cufflinks come with sapphire crystal plates, inspired by the dots featured in the iconic opening sequence of Dr No., with the 007 logo.
Bremont Jaguar C Type and Watch Winder
Designed by British Jaguar car designer, aerodynamicist, and artist Malcolm Sayer, the C-type has been known for its exceptionally fluid shape. And as with previous Bremont Jaguar timepieces, the C-type draws inspiration from the car’s classic shape and design. The chronograph comes with a 43 mm stainless steel case, a black metal dial, white subdials at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, and a date window at 6 o'clock. The watch has a bidirectional rotating bezel, sporting a brushed stainless steel bezel insert with a tachymeter scale. The watch is powered by a modified Calibre 13 1/4’’ BE-50AV with 56 hours of power reserve.
An automatic watch definitely needs a watch winder. This watch winder from Bremont gets adjustable leather cushion with the quintessential Bremont detailing, three rotational direction settings in six different speeds, and a touchscreen control panel with a battery level indicator. It has the capacity to keep only one watch at a time.
Jacob & Co. JC11 and Backgammon Game
Jacob & Co. JC11 comes with five time zones on the dial. The central time zone shows the local time, 2 o'clock for LA, 5 o'clock for Tokyo, 7 o'clock for Paris, and 10 o'clock for New York. The watch comes with a 40 mm or a much bolder 47 mm stainless steel case, a black dial, a central seconds hand in red, and a date indicator at 6 o'clock. There are multiple options for the bezel — standard plain stainless steel with 3.25 ct or 5.00 ct diamonds for the 47 mm version and 2.00 ct. or 3.20 ct diamonds for the 40 mm rose, yellow and white gold bezel model. Both models are powered by Swiss quartz movement and have individual pushers for each time zone.
If you enjoy board games with your father, then go for Jacob & Co.'s backgammon game set. The 550 mm board is made of wood and fabric.
Cartier Santos-Dumont and Card Holder
The Cartier Santos-Dumont watch is crafted from rose gold and steel, with a limited edition in yellow gold and navy lacquer. Even its bezel and case are lacquered. The watch comes with a skeleton dial and bridges. The luxury watchmaker has incorporated a new 9629 MC automatic skeleton calibre into this model. The movement on this time-only watch delivers a power reserve of 44 hours. The watch has visible screws and a beaded, blue cabochon crown. The movement also includes a miniaturised oscillating weight in the shape of a replica of the Demoiselle.
Every person must keep a card holder for business cards and this particular Cartier card holder can be a great choice. The card holder is crafted from leaf green dots calfskin leather; there is a printed double C logo, along with gold-finish metal corners. The inside of the card holder is also made of green calfskin leather, gold-coloured with Cartier marking. There are four credit card pockets.
Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date and Meisterstück Gold-Coated 149 Fountain Pen
The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date watch gets a green, frozen dial, inspired by Mer de Glace, one of the glaciers on Mont Blanc. The timepiece indicates the hours, minutes, and seconds. There is a date window at 3 o'clock. The stainless steel timepiece comes with a unidirectional bicolour ceramic bezel. Time on the watch is visible in all conditions, thanks to Super-LumiNova® on hands, indexes, and the bezel’s 12 o’clock dots. Powering the watch is an automatic, self-winding Calibre MB 24.17 with 38 hours of power reserve.
Pens will never go out of fashion. So, choose an impressive writing instrument for your father, especially if he’s fond of writing. The Meisterstück Gold-Coated 149 Fountain Pen can fit the bill. The pen comes with an Au750/18 ct solid gold nib. The Meisterstück 1-Pen pouch is made of black full-grain calfskin and designed to carry a fountain pen the size of a Meisterstück Classique or a LeGrand.

From the House of GUCCI, we have the 25H collection, which is ultra-thin and sharp, and comes with an integrated bracelet, crown, and bezel. The 40 mm automatic editions are fitted with the House’s GG727.25A calibre and deliver 60 hours of power reserve.
