A Vintage Chronograph Watch is the Ideal Father’s Day Present

With Father’s Day coming up quickly, it is time to shop around for the right gift. Although dads are not usually the easiest people to buy for, you cannot go wrong with a chronograph watch. The combination of a standard display watch with a stopwatch appeals to dad’s active side. At the same time, the masculine look of the timepiece makes it suitable for daily wear but also for the boardroom and golf course. We put together a list of our most attractive designer chronograph watches.
