They say every man should own at least one great watch (preferably two). From the perfect accomplice for those weekend sailing trips (a guy can dream), through to looking sharp for those fancy evenings out—a good watch is your ultimate wingman.

Whether your perfect watch is water ready with a little brawn, or reflective of your Scandi-style inspired apartment, we’ve rounded up our favourite watch for every dude we know. With Father’s Day juuuust around the corner—September 3—our wrist-candy of choice make the perfect gift for dear old Dad

The Most Stylish Guy We Know | GUCCI - 45mm Dive Watch

As far as the fash-pack are concerned, Gucci can do no wrong. The remarkable resurgence of the brand means T-Shirts sell out in hours and accessories are always on back-order. The most stylish guy we know will be coupling his monogram tees and Pitti-Uomo inspired style with a little Gucci on his wrist in the brands’ signature green and red.

The Weekend Warrior  | DIESEL - Sleeper Watch

The watch for the man in the office on the weekday, that’s abseiling by the weekend. High-tech yet functional, this Diesel Sleeper Watch has a durable silicone strap and tracks your activity and sleep. But the best part is you can use it to ring your phone (see ya, find my iPhone) and control your music when you’re en-route on your Saturday morning run.  

The Modern Luxuriant Gentleman  | U-Boat Classico Watch

Of course the modern gentleman likely has a wardrobe of timepieces to suit every occasion, so we’re not here to tell you that you need an heirloom gold Rolex. You’re cooler than that, buddy. This statement U-Boat Classico timepiece exudes understated luxury. Add a bit of edge to a suit during the week, or pair with a khaki military-style overcoat for the weekend.

The Danish-Design Lover  | SWCO Earl Watch

Your apartment is adorned with minimalistic blonde-wood furniture and fiddle-leaf fig trees. Loud T-Shirts and fancy blazers are so not your jam, and that’s cool with us. This understated timepiece is classic, conservative yet super stylish. Perfect for pairing your cold brew coffee with tonic water.

The Fresh Executive | TISSOT Le Locle Watch with Black DIal

For the fresh exec or new guy in the office, this watch ticks all the boxes. Quartz movement, stainless steel dial and an understated black face, this classy piece has every essential feature you could hope for at a price that won’t break the bank. What a winning gift-to-self for that first paycheck!

The Lieutenant  | TIMEX Camper MK1

Whether a legitimate lieutenant (or a lieutenant of Friday night activities), this TIMEX timepiece is a remastered version of the ones supplied to US military personnel in the ‘80s. In this army-green hue, it’s just as cool as it is functional.

The Tech Guru  | Apple Watch  

Heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, Bluetooth and GPS… Yeah, this watch is basically a robot on your wrist. This is the ultimate watch for the tech-guru that has everything, from his calendar to his grocery list, in an iCloud.

The Preppy Dude  | Daniel Wellington – Classic Glasglow Rose Gold

The perfect accomplice to a navy bow-tie and boat shoes, this signature Daniel Wellington wrist-accessory features Japanese Quartz movement and is of course, water resistant, you know, for sailing on Sundays.

These are the best facial products for men, FYI.
