Grooms, Grads and…Dads?

May 11, 2009


Even though there’s over a month before Father’s Day, you may actually be in the market for a gift for the man in your life before then. This is graduation and wedding season, and that means plenty of reasons to splurge on something that will commemorate these special days for years to come.

With my own impending wedding later this summer, I’m already searching for a gift for my soon-to-be-husband. A watch is a very traditional groom’s gift, especially if your man has never really graduated to a grown up timepiece. This is the perfect opportunity to get him into a sophisticated watch that can take him easily from day to night. Some of my favorite classics?

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Stainless Steel Automatic Men’s 16200 Watch
Cartier Roadster Chronograph Stainless Steel Automatic Men’s W62006X6 Watch
Patek Philippe Calatrava 18k White Gold Manual Winding Men’s 5026G Watch

Watches are also perfect gifts for high school and college graduation, and Portero has a great selection of watches under $1000 that won’t break the bank. Here are some of my top picks:

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Stainless Steel Men’s Quartz 2517.80.00 Watch
Hermes H-Our Stainless Steel Men’s Quartz HH1-710 Watch
Tag Heuer Aquaracer Stainless Steel Automatic Men’s WAB2010 Watch
