Every dad needs a watch or two. These are our top picks for the dad in your life.

Dads today are busy! They’ve got places to go and people to see, so it’s important for them to know what time it is. Make sure Dad’s on time and in style with these watches every dad should own.

G-Shock watch

The G-Shock Aviation Series GA1000FC-1A (G-Shock, $320) is equipped with everything a modern aviator needs, making it even cooler to the modern dad. It has a digital compass with bearing memory, a neon illuminator light and a thermometer. It’s also shock resistant and much, much more.

Fossil watch

Fossil Retro Traveler Chronograph

The Retro Traveler Chronograph Stainless Steel Watch from Fossil (Fossil, $135) is a classic watch for the classic dad. The shiny silver case and band add a touch of sophistication, and the wide variety of colored dials available bring a touch of fun. We like the orange, but what color would you choose for your dad?

Austin mesh strap watch

Lacoste “Austin” Mesh Strap Watch

The Austin Mesh Strap Watch by Lacoste (Nordstrom, $235) is exactly what every high-class dad wants on his wrist. The stainless steel case and mineral crystal face give it a classic look, while the mesh strap adds a modern twist and ups the comfort factor considerably.

Sony Smart watch

Every dad loves his gadgets, so why not give him one to wear on his wrist? The Sony SmartWatch for Android Smartphones (, $130) works beautifully with Sony and non-Sony Android phones. It’s Bluetooth enabled, so he can check updates, control music and stay connected — all without ever taking his phone out of his pocket.

The Oversize Black Watch with White Accents by Kenneth Cole Reaction (Kenneth Cole, $65) is sleek but fun — perfect for the casual dad. The matte black case has an understated look, but the white details give it just enough flair to catch the eye. The silicone band is durable and comfy for dads on the go.
