Limited Edition Watches for Your One-of-a-Kind Dad
From a sporty Shinola to elegant finishes from Grand Seiko, give Dad something as rare as he is.
The Grand Seiko SBGR311
Fundamentally, the design of this watch is that of an exceptionally made, yet unassuming daily companion — nice but not flashy. But then, Grand Seiko put a dial like this in, and turn the watch into something that can’t help but grab on-the-wrist attention. The perfect choice for someone who’s out to prove that brown is anything but boring. Limited Edition of 1300.
The Breitling Avenger Hurricane
With this Avenger Hurricane, Breitling have created a subtle beast. The case measures in at an impressive 50mm width by 17mm thick. Now you may ask, how can a watch of this size be subtle? It’s all about the design and materials. The black case is made of the incredibly light and remarkably durable material known as Breitlight. This composite, developed by Breitling is a fraction the weight of titanium, yet it remains significantly harder than titanium and stainless steel. The black dial features stencil style number markers and subtle chronograph sub-dials. This combination of high-tech materials and low- key design make for a comfortable feel on the wrist, creates a subtle watch of impressive size. Limited Edition of 250.
The TAG Heuer Tom Brady Carrera
Tom was deeply involved in the design process. The large “12” matches the “12” on his jersey. The strap is a pigskin look in the blue and red colors of the Patriots. The box material is made from the same material as the Patriot’s uniforms. The back also has the #12 and Brady’s signature. Lastly, there were only 466 produced — 466 is the number of yards her threw as he won his 5th Super Bowl. Royal Jewelers has sold the most Tom Brady watches in the entire world and has the remaining few.
Starting at $5,750
The Shinola Rambler 600
Designed for those who wouldn’t dream of slowing down. Inspired by Craig Breedlove, the first man to break the 400, 500, and 600 MPH land-speed records on wheels, The Rambler 600 is an icon of American resolve. Created to celebrate Breedlove’s calculated resolve and commitment to speed, The Rambler 600 is built from titanium light enough to achieve high speeds and tough enough to withstand them. This timepiece is our first to have both a chronograph stopwatch function and a bezel with a tachymetric scale that allows the wearer to accurately measure speed in terms of time. Every aspect of this refined tool has been engineered to ensure exact time keeping in moments when every second counts.
The Oris Aquis Staghorn
The Oris Aquis Staghorn is an advocate, out to accomplish a noble task: ‘preserving the world’s endangered Staghorn coral’. Oris is not a new rescuer on the block, but they don’t scream out loud about their noble deeds. Since 2010, Oris has been cleaning up under deep waters, literally. Having taken up projects in Australia, Red Sea and the Maldives, Oris has launched a glorious timepiece for every mission. Limited Edition of 2000.
The Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur
It’s no secret that seafaring heritage is a huge inspiration for Ulysse Nardin. This watch is a perfect manifestation of that way of thinking, both inside and out. There’s plenty of old-school military styling on the dial and a movement that carries not one, but two certificates testifying to its accuracy. This is Ulysse Nardin doing what it does best from top to bottom. Offering irresistible excellence both in the aesthetic and technical aspect, this fascinating wristwatch from Ulysse Nardin, limited to 300 pieces, offers the essential timekeeping functions in a minimalistic and traditionally appealing manner.
