Seiko’s sports watches are renowned for their robust designs and sleek style. These mechanical watches are not just high-quality but affordable too.


Seiko SNE516P

If your Dad is a stylish bloke, he’ll love the Seiko SNE516P. This black and rose stainless steel watch is part of Seiko’s elegant Coutura Sports collection - where modern sports meets classic sophistication. 


The Seiko SNE516P is water-resistant up to 100 metres and has a sapphire crystal glass face, making it almost scratch and shatterproof. So is this just a regular sports watch? No way.  


With rose highlights and a black enamel dial, the Seiko SNE516P is exquisite and hard-wearing. Combine that with a solar-powered movement function fueled by any light source, and you’ve got yourself the perfect Father’s Day gift!


Seiko SSC37601

Who can resist that impressive smoky black dial or those silver and gold two-toned highlights? Not your Dad, that’s for sure!


As the latest addition to Seiko’s Coutura collection, this watch is suitable for any occasion. Whether he’s playing with the kids in the park or out with the missus for a romantic dinner, this watch can adapt to any situation. Its dramatic black dial and silver and gold tone highlights give the watch a timeless look, while the sapphire glass face protects it from scratches and chips. 


And just like all Seiko watches, the SSC37601 is as magnificent as it is dependable. It’s water-resistant up to 100 metres and has a solar movement function with a six-month power reserve when fully charged. Dad has got to be happy with that!


Casio was first founded in 1946 by Tadao Kashio - an engineer who specialised in fabrication technology.  His first product was a finger ring that could hold a cigarette. Needless to say, Casio has come a long way since then.


With their industrial designs and smart use of materials, Casio is a trusted brand known for its quality and affordability. Their watches are crafted from carbon fibre - a material ten times stronger than iron - making them one of the most durable watches in the market. The bold choice won Casio a iF Design Award - an annual international award for the best industrial design. 

Casio AE1000W-1A3


Is your Dad a man of the world?


Then he’ll need a watch that can keep up with him.


The Casio AE1000W-1A3 is the first of Casio’s new smart power series. Gold highlights allow this watch to blend from durable sportswear to classic dress wear. And its spacious size and button design make using it a breeze. Now your Dad can set up to five alarms without any hassle.


With a multi-mission LCD and 10-year battery, it’s not hard to understand why it’s so popular. Pair that with a handy world map for world time, and a 1/100-second stopwatch, the AE1000W-1A3 makes an amazing Father’s Day gift for a Dad on the move. 





If making incredible, affordable watches of superior quality wasn’t enough, Casio wanted to design a watch that was more durable and hard-wearing than any other watch on the market. The result? The G-Shock series. 


So what does G-Shock mean? It’s short for Gravitational Shock. G-Shock watches are strong - way stronger than your average watch. It can withstand up to 200 metres of water and resist mechanical stress, shock, and vibration. 

G-Shock GA2000-3ADR

If your Dad’s a tough guy, he’ll need a watch that can keep up with his active lifestyle. GA2000-3ADR is the watch he’s been waiting for.


With a full auto-calendar, 31 time zones, countdown timer and several measuring modes in different units, the GA2000-3ADR is both practical and stylish. And its lush olive colour will turn other Dads green with envy.


This lightweight watch is made from resin - a material specially chosen for maximum comfort around your wrist. Shielded by mineral glass, the GA2000-3ADR can withstand spray, shocks and vibrations, so your Dad will be ready for any situation



Excellence and creativity - two words that have encapsulated Citizen since they were first founded in 1918. Known for its superior quality and unique aesthetics, Citizen is renowned for their remarkable technical masterpieces. In simple terms, these watches are all about luxury.

But looks aren’t everything. Citizen watches are also reliable and long-lasting. And thanks to their clever gadgets and innovation, these watches will work just as hard as your Dad does. 


Citizen BF2022-55H

Give your Dad the Midas touch this Father’s Day with his very own gold Citizen BF2022-55H. A technologically powerful timepiece for the working man on the go, your Dad can wear this watch at a serious office meeting or a fun night out with the family. 

With its trademark minimalist style and ruggedly designed gold-toned stainless steel case, it’s easy to forget how functional the BF2022-55H is. Mineral crystal glass makes this watch scratch-resistant, and its black dial with day and date indicator means Dad will never miss school pick up again.
