Watches for Dad this Father’s Day

Stuck for inspiration on what to buy Dad for Father’s Day? Well, if you’ve got a spare £4,000 you could buy a vintage bike racing dream watch. We look at other watches for Dads, too.

A 1978 Heuer Silverstone chronograph is up for sale with Silverstone Auctions during MotoGP weekend at Silverstone on 11th June and for any motoring enthusiasts it could be the perfect Father’s Day gift.

The 43 mm diameter, blue-faced watch reflects the curvature of the Silverstone circuit, hence its Silverstone name.

Showing baton numerals on an inner bezel, it has subsidiary dials for 30-minute and 12-hour recording, with a calendar opening at the six o’clock position. It has stop start buttons at the two and four o’clock positions respectively and a black leather Heuer strap. The watch has a guide price of £4,200 to £4,600!

The watch is one of four purchased and engraved by Mike ‘the bike’ Hailwood, whose ‘bike racing career spanned numerous Isle of Man TT as well as Superbike world championship wins.
A subsequent motor racing career saw him crowned Formula 2 European champion, take third place in Le Mans 24 Hours and drive a McLaren in Formula One from which he retired aged 34 following a serious crash at the Nurburgring in 1974. In 1978, he came out of retirement to win his fourteenth Isle of Man TT on a Ducati 900.

But if you don’t fancy taking out a loan just to buy Dad a gift you could opt for one of these watches instead:

The Spy Watch

Chinese company Ankaka have created a spy camera watch that combines a camera and a video recorder into a normal-looking watch.

Available in either 4GB or 8GB, at first glance the watch looks completely normal, but it has the ability to take photos and record both video and close range audio – up to 3 metres – simultaneously. It can even function as a portable flash drive! Read More on the Spy Watch.

Nike SportsWatch

Inspired by the London Marathon? Nike and TomTom have teamed up to create a super-cool GPS sports watch that should help getting Dad out and about and pounding pavements.

The Nike+ SportWatch GPS Powered by TomTom is a brand new running watch that promises to provide athletes with a ‘dynamic’ and ‘motivational’ running experience.
