Stumped on what to get Dad for the holidays? Aren’t we all! Luckily however, we at Orient Watch USA have curated a collection of watches that might do the trick. Here are our staff picks that give you a lot of bang for your buck at under $200.
The Orient Symphony (L), Bambino , and Capital
If you’re looking for a watch that Dad could wear at the office you can’t go wrong with the Orient Symphony, Bambino, or Capital. These are all classic watches that have been updated to fit a modern persona. They feature a clean, polished design with easy to read dials that are both elegant and unassuming. While the Symphony and Bambino are both automatic watches and the Capital being quartz, they’re all around the same size (40mm-41mm). The Bambino and Capital offer domed crystals which add a rich aesthetic. The best part is that all three come in different styles and dial colors–gold plated, stainless steel on leather or perhaps on bracelet.
The Orient Mako, EM65 and field watch
For a more casual watch for Dad, we’d definitely recommend an Orient Mako, EM65 or field watch. What we love about these three watches is their versatility. Even though the Mako and EM65 are diver watches, Dad could wear them to work under the cuff. Same goes for the field watch– the leather band option dresses it up a bit (and is also very comfy!) but the dial keeps things casual. The Orient Mako and EM65 are full-fledged diver watches, and the field watch is what we consider the best weekend watch out there. The Mako is a well-regarded diver watch, and has been considered a staple among collectors. And as with aforementioned watches, the Mako, EM65 and field watch come in multiple colors and band/bracelet pairings. Some other notable mentions for Dad are the Class and the Brazen models. The Class (left) features a minimalist design– a simple, clean, understated look. With two hands, a date window, and a tough sapphire crystal, it is functional watch that Dad will enjoy. It is great quartz watch with a contemporary feel. The Brazen (right) is a simple design with a splash of subtle color. The textured dial spices up the the look while the blue hands makes it more sporty. It comes on a stainless steel band, making it great for everyday wear.
