Father’s Day at A:S — Watches and Accessories Dad Will Love

Father’s Day at A:S — Watches and Accessories Dad Will Love

| 06.10.24

This Father’s Day, it’s time to think outside the box.

Sure — no dad’s gonna object to a cool vintage or pre-owned watch! But maybe he’s the type of guy who already has several watches…or more. (A man after our own collective horological heart.) In that case, have you seen our innovative storage solutions, which are modeled after vintage watch boxes from the mid-20th century? And what about our travel products, such as rolls and tubes, that allow him to take his precious collection on the road? 

Beyond these everyday objects, we have special, one-off, highly curated items that he’s unlikely to find elsewhere — certainly not in this condition, anyway: Incredible table clocks, model aircraft, and all manner of collectibles. We’ve also got products built especially for Analog:Shift that he’s sure to fall in love with: the Muyshondt Maus UV Electric Torch, for example, and our special, limited-edition chronograph that we designed with Nivada-Grenchen. 

Whatever his preferences, there are excellent, horologically themed (and other) objects that Dad will surely appreciate available at Analog:Shift this Father’s Day. Check out some of our favorites below!

Vacheron Constantin 'Disco Volante' Dress Watch - IN THE SHOP

This incredibly shaped 1960s ‘Disco Volante’ (“flying saucer”) watch from Vacheron Constantin anticipates some of the wonkier shapes that would surface in 1970s watchmaking.

Patek Philippe Calatrava ($9,950)

Sometimes simpler is better. Case in point: This no-frills Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 3468 from the mid-20th century. Its 33mm white gold case flies right under the radar, as does its pared-down silver dial with applied indices and matching hands. The hand-wound Calibre 23-300 movement, meanwhile, keeps it nice and thin. It’s everything you want, and nothing you don’t!
