From offering endless piggyback rides to patiently teaching us to bait a hook, there’s no one in the world quite like Dad. Fathers usually wear many hats, making them the best homework helpers, grass-mowers and life coaches. This coming June 17, treat your dad, husband or father figure to something he can enjoy year in and year out — no matter what he puts it through. Hook+Gaff watches offer a classic aesthetic that will impress in the boardroom, and a rugged durability that can withstand even the rockiest weather out on the boat.
Not sure which watch is perfect for your dad? Hook+Gaff offers a wide array of watches with various features, watch faces and strap colors — that way you can choose one that perfectly suits your dad’s personality and needs. Check out the gift guide below and find a Father’s Day present as reliable as Dad.
If your dad is the guy who always looks pulled together — even when he’s coming off a long day on the water — he needs the Sportfisher II Moonphase watch. It offers timeless style and high-powered functionality, making it the perfect accessory for the well-dressed and active outdoorsman. The Moonphase feature accurately indicates the current phase of the moon and it makes for a great conversation starter.
Watch: Hook+Gaff Golf Watch
Does Dad see golf as less of a hobby and more of an obsession? Fuel his passion for the game with a golf watch intended to be worn while on the course. The Hook+Gaff Golf Watch’s unique left-side crown placement keeps Dad’s wrist from getting irritated while he swings, while the specialized golf logo keeps him looking sharp while he does. And, its water-resistance means he’s safe to go get that club he threw into the water hazard. With clean lines and a classic look, this timepiece seamlessly transitions from the fairways to the clubhouse.
Watch: Sportfisher Black
If your dad is no stranger to pre-dawn trolling and doesn’t let the sun tell him when it’s time to come in off the water, then the Hook+Gaff Sportfisher Black is tailor-made for him. The 24-hour illumination tritium technology continuously illuminates the dial’s hour markers and hands — and that means that if he won’t stop when the sun sets, his watch won’t, either. It features custom Swiss quartz movement, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a custom 41 mm black PVD-coated titanium screw-down case. With a performance-driven, practical design and a handsomely crafted black face, the Sportfisher Black is built to impress on and off the water.
Any military man will appreciate the practical functionality and long-lasting durability of the Sportfisher Black. Of course, the illumination technology and visibility of the watch hands in the pitch-black means that those 4 a.m. wake-ups won’t be a hindrance. And, with many watch/strap combos available, your target price point may help you choose the right option for Dad. The Sportfisher II Classic starts at $550, the Sportfisher II Moonphase starts at $650, and the Sportfisher Black with a woven strap can be yours for $750.
Watch: Sportfisher II, Camo Strap
Get Dad a watch that’s built with all the same high-functionality features the Sportfisher II encompasses, but select a strap that won’t give away his position in flooded timber or statuesque deer stands. The camo strap is one of many watch straps available to fit a Hook+Gaff watch, and it’s tastefully designed on a rubber dive strap that won’t mind a little water and mud.
Hook+Gaff watches can be customized for some die-hard football fans, and the Sportfisher II Classic, Blue Dial watch is a great place to start. Explore a variety of strap and watch face combinations that are ready to help Dad show off his team spirit. Got a Gamecock in the house? Check out the black or garnet strap for the University of South Carolina fans. Or, does Dad prefer to accessorize in orange and purple? If so, the orange strap is your best choice. And, if he’s still cruising on that 2016 Clemson high, there are a few limited-edition National Championship watches left!
There are also shades of blue for Duke University and the University of North Carolina, as well as a bright red for the Georgia Bulldogs. Mix and match strap combos to find the perfect pick for Dad!
Fathers are notoriously hard to shop for, because they tend to buy themselves whatever it is they really need. But this year, give him something that will always remind him of you. If he already has a Hook+Gaff timepiece, consider adding a new strap to his collection. Or, check out our selection of hoodies, hats, shirts and visors to keep Dad looking fresh all year long.
To all the hardworking dads out there in the Hook+Gaff community, we extend sincere wishes for a very happy Father’s Day! Whether you’re still figuring out how much baby powder to use or preparing to send your senior off to college, raising a kid is no small feat. Here’s to you!
