In case you had forgotten, it’s Father’s Day on Sunday June 18, that’s this coming Sunday, but if you follow our Dads & Grads Watch Gift Guide there is still time to get inspired and get the lucky dad or grad in your household a watch to remember.
We also thought it would be more involving to talk you through the watches on video, rather than merely present you with the cold hard facts on a post. Below are the prices and brief notes on each watch, together with the links where you can purchase them. But for further details and commentary, sit back, relax with your favorite beverage and listen to the Dads & Grads Watch Guide video produced by Scott Sitkiewitz.
I swear, Scott could read an entire Nuclear Power Plant Reactor Operator’s manual and I could happily sit and listen to it, such are his soothing, mellifluous tones. Maybe we should get him to read one. We just wind him up and he runs as reliably and economically as an ETA 2824-2, and for almost as long.
Here’s the video and our written guide just below. Happy Dads & Grads Day!
