As all of you know, here at Monica Rich Kosann, two things that we really love are anything that's vintage, and pieces of jewelry that tell a story - after all we are a storytelling brand that loves to make old ideas new again.
So as we were thinking about great gifts for Father's Day, we turned our attention to the world of vintage watches and the amazing ideas they offer for Dad.
Our first stop was the great site analog/shift where vintage watches are each presented with the most wonderful stories about their background - did we mention we love stories?.
Buying Dad a vintage watch that is associated with something he loves - be it cars, boats or planes - is one idea we find inspiring. So for the Dad who loves boating, diving or anything having to do with the water we found this Mariner - Eterna Kon Tiki watch from the 1960's. It was made to honor the explorer Thor Heyerdahl and his crew who rafted the South Pacific sporting the same name brand watch in 1947.
Or to be truly thoughtful, how about a vintage watch for Dad that was created the year he was born? So, for the Dad who is 52 this Father's Day we spotted this this vintage Rolex Air King.
If Dad is already a watch guy or just has a great old family watch that needs new life, then visit HODINKEE, one of the premier watch sites and pick up a great new handmade Italian watch band to give his timepiece a whole new look.
Or for the "watch guy" Dad who travels a lot we picked these great Watch Travel Rolls.
Happy Fathers Day!
