Father’s Day is coming up, and if your dads are anything like ours, they are impossible to shop for. We don’t know what it is about dads, but they tend to buy themselves whatever they want, whenever they want it. Helpful, right?
To make your Father’s Day shopping experience a bit easier, we put together a guide of some of our favorite gifts: watches! And not just any watch, but beautiful, stylish, functional, and impeccably crafted pieces as well. After all, your dad deserves only the best.
Now comes the hard part: deciding what type of watch to buy for your dad! A good place to start is by looking at our Etsy or 1stdibs online shops to see what we currently have available. Because we’re the most experienced and trusted diamond and estate jewelry buyer in the Washington, DC, Baltimore, Virginia, and Maryland areas, we often have a wide variety of luxury brand watches on hand.
Some of our favorite watches to buy and sell are made by Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, and Breitling. There is a certain connotation to each premium watch brand, which is part of how they have created such enduring legacies. More than a simple accessory, owning a watch by one of these designers is essentially owning a work of wearable art.
Long before becoming known for their watches, Cartier had made their mark as a luxury jewelry brand. However, they pivoted during the first World War when they created their version of a man’s wrist watch that became widely adopted. Prior to then, wrist watches were more decorative and feminine. What makes Cartier watches stand out today is the wide diversity in options for faces, stones, and precious metals. Remember, they did start out as a jeweler to royalty!
From movies to racetracks and golf tournaments, Rolex is an immediately identifiable brand that exudes luxury. And of course, in addition to being well-crafted, they are functional and aesthetically pleasing, which is partially why we love them. They hold their value well – and in some cases, increase their value significantly depending on its rarity and condition. You can never go wrong with a Rolex.
If you’re looking for a beautiful family heirloom, look no further than a Patek Philippe. They are so exact and according with their watches that they keep records of every single watch ever manufactured. Their craftsmanship is bar none with an exquisite attention to detail and a recognizable signature style. These truly are the height of luxury.
Breitling watches have gained a reputation for their watches designed for specific professionals such as pilots, astronauts, military personnel, search and rescue operations, and more. Unlike some of the other prestige watch brands, Breitling watches have thousands of customizable options, making it more likely that your watch might be the only one like it. Their combination of customization and precision watches have made Breitling a well coveted luxury watch brand.
These are just a few of the brands we buy and sell at Samuelson’s. This Father’s Day, we’re excited to welcome you and your father to the Samuelson’s family. Get started by browsing our inventory online today at Etsy or 1stdibs!
