Father’s Day is approaching, and yes, there is a limit to how many “I [heart] YOU DAD” or “World’s Best Dad” plaques you can get for the most important guy in your life. Switch it up this year and show your dad some love and gratitude with a timeless gift – something he’d truly be glad to receive. Check out these watches for daddy dearest!
1. The Trendy Dad – David Beckham, 42
Chances are, The Trendy Dad has probably already worked his way into the latest fashion fad before you have. A style chameleon and fearless trendsetter, he is well-dressed 24/7, whether in his understated tee from an underground label while going about his daily grind, or in his posh weekend wear spending quality time with his kids.
When it comes to hot, trendy dads, David Beckham makes it the top of our style list. The father of four is renowned for his superb sense of style, and is always spotted switching things up while out with his family. Football star or fashion icon? We vote yes to both!
Match this style:
The Trendy Dad would appreciate this all-black number, the perfect companion to any outfit. The classy black dial takes on a refreshing laidback twist with matching black NATO straps. Watch this evolve into dad’s new go-to watch, accompanying him through his weekend errands to his daily weekday grind.
2. The Rugged Dad – Channing Tatum, 37
This is the type of dad that wakes up way before the morning alarm and shoves the entire family for weekend hikes, cycling trips and more outdoor adventures. To him, nothing beats soaking up the sun and being one with the elements. If your dad loves keeping fit and being out in the wild, you probably got yourself a Rugged Dad.
We believe we have the undisputed winner – Channing Tatum is the ripped, rugged dad. The Magic Mike star was seen surviving out in the wilderness in the series Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and wait, was he even enjoying it? Take a peep at this hot dad – we promise we wouldn’t tell.
Match this style:
Water-resistant, outdoor tested and designed for functionality – the perfect watch for the Rugged Dad, this TIMBERLAND watch was built to resist the elements, and will weather through any adventure with your dad.

3. The Classy Dad – Pierce Brosnan, 64
Showing us what it means to age like fine wine, the Classy Dad is stylish, sophisticated, and only gets better with time.
One best-in-class example? Pierce Brosnan. The former James Bond star is already well into his 60s but still manages to ooze that on-screen charm with each dapper wardrobe change. Well-cut shirts, spiffy suits and even casual bermudas for that breezy, tropical vacation vibe? This gentleman has it all covered.
Match the style:
Think classic – a timeless eggwhite dial encrusted in a rose gold bezel, matched with a nautical-inspired NATO strap. Originally made for NATO troops (hence its name), the NATO strap is popular with top watchmakers and was coincidentally made popular in the original Bond movie.
