6 dads, 6 LIV watches
What are you planning to do for your dad on Father’s Day this year? Most dads are probably expecting the standard Father’s Day treatment--a pat on the back, maybe taking him out to lunch. Don’t get us wrong, that’s a classic move for a reason. But maybe try something else this year. Make him feel truly special by giving him a gift he’ll never forget? We’ve put together a Father's Day Gift Guide for 2021, from which you can choose the one ‘Dad Type’ that best describes and suits your dad (and at a price that won’t make you break into a cold sweat)!
Here at LIV Watches, we know that family can be everything, and that a great dad is a true blessing indeed. So, which one of these six dads best describes your own father…?
The rugged dad
Is your dad the epitome of the guy who never sits still? Is he the dad who used to take you camping or fishing and exploring the great outdoors any chance he could? Is he the guy that’s always looking for the next adventure, who relishes in anything that’s thrilling and even a bit crazy? Well, then, seems that you have the Rugged Dad in your life - and things are never dull with him around, that’s for sure!
Our best pick for the Rugged Dad is the LIV GX1. Why a quartz chronograph for this dad? Because what adventure-driven dad has the time to be fiddling with winding a watch when he can get all the convenience of a quartz watch, right? And all those chronograph pushers on the right side of the dial are going to please his adventurous spirit no end!
This is just the type of watch that a thrill-seeker dad is going to love showing off to his hiking buddies or on his next canoe trip. Opt for the GX1 Sky Blue or Signature Orange for the more conservative rugged dad or the GX1 T.J Blue or Venom Yellow if your dad is more of the extroverted type.
Whatever your choice, your adventurous dad will get an adrenaline rush every time he slips on his GX1 quartz chronograph wrist buddy!
"One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure."
The rebel dad
We think that the Rebel DDC is your best bet for the rebellious dad in your life. He may be a rebel at heart, but your dad will definitely appreciate the quality of the classic Swiss-made Ronda Z60 xtratech Day Date Quartz Chronograph. And he will no doubt love hearing about how his watch was designed and made by a small, passionate band of rebels in Miami, Florida, who just happen to have done it all by having the most-funded Swiss watch in crowd-funding history!
The LIV Rebel-DDC Cobalt with stunning dial in cobalt blue with black panda dials and NATO strap will no doubt tickle his fancy. Or you can choose the LIV Rebel-DDC T.J. Blue in turquoise if your dad is both daringanda rebel!
Whatever your choice, your dad’s inner rebel will make him smile every time he dons that special LIV watch that looks great on his wrist.
The ocean dad
We have two fantastic diver's watches for you to choose from for your dad: the first is the LIV GX Diver's 41mm. Think about an automatic watch with a top-quality Swiss-made ETA Caliber with 25 Jewels in a lustrous 316L Stainless Steel case and with a water resistance of 1000 feet (300 meters). You can go for the stunning Harvest Moon edition in gorgeous red with either a stainless steel bracelet or, for a more athletic look, a nifty NATO or rubber strap.
Your second choice could be the LIV GX Diver's 44mm, with all the same terrific specs of the 41mm, except this one is slightly bigger for a bolder wrist presence. Choose this beauty in any one of six different design and three strap or bracelet combinations.
Whatever your choice, the GX Diver’s 41mm or 44mm will be the perfect gift for any dad who has a hankering for the Big Blue.
The high-flying dad
Does your dad literally aim for the stars and reach for the sky, if only in his imagination? Has your dad always had a passion for all things aviation, even if his feet were firmly on the ground? Is your dad the type of guy who looks like a suave Pan Am pilot any time he wears a suit? Seriously, is he that type of guy that you know would love to soar like an eagle if he could have any superpower? Well, it’s clear that yours is the High-Flying Dad - the one who always made you believe the sky was the limit!
Well, our very own GX P-51 Pilot's Automatic Chronograph is just the watch to match his passion. This superbly crafted watch is constructed of a titanium case, a high-quality ceramic bezel, and genuine sapphire crystal. A terrific design element of this particular LIV watch is its superbly detailed skeleton back. Inside (and for all the world to see) is a 25 Jewel Swiss automatic movement, the superbly robust and reliable Sellita SW500.
And your dad being an aviation buff will no doubt love what inspired our watch: our P-51 pilot watch was inspired by (and is dedicated to) the iconic P-51 Mustang World War II fighter plane, one of the true genius planes of its era.
Your aviation-loving dad will fall in love with this beautiful automatic chronograph pilot’s watch, just as he’s always loved the big, blue yonder.
"I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty."
The reliable dad
Don’t for a minute equate reliability with being boring! Just as your dad is anything but boring, so too is that the case for this terrific alarm watch. Say hello to the LIV GX Alarm Type-D, as reliable as it is sexy and versatile. Being a great alarm watch means having a quality quartz movement, in this baby a Caliber 4120.B, 2-hand quartz analog alarm movement. This watch features a 2-hand display of time with a constant running 60 second sub-dial, as well as an easy-to-read big date feature.
But as we like to say on our website for the GX Alarm Type-D, “The alarm is the star of this show”. It sure is - and your ever-reliable dad will appreciate that in his alarm watch. And you can choose from five different designs - think Cobalt Blue, Orange, Cool Grey, Black Cobalt, and Rose Gold. Choices, choices!
Well, whatever your choice, you can now offer your resolutely reliable dad a watch that is solid and anything but dull - just like he is, of course
The classic dad
Was your dad the man that all your friends were quite in awe of? Does he look great even in a shabby dressing gown and old slippers? Is he a man who looks smart and classy without even trying? The man that exudes quiet elegance and a true sense of self in everything that he wears and everything that he does? Does he still manage to pull it off even after all these years? Well, then, seems like your father is the quintessential Classic Dad - the kind of father that makes it all look rather effortlessly, simply easy.
Classic does not mean being boring or even conservative. On the contrary, the classic man is anything but boring and far too elegant to be simply conservative in how he looks and acts. That is why your classic father needs a watch that has the understated elegance and quality craftsmanship befitting his personality. This watch features a Swiss Made Sellita Caliber SW200-1, 3-hand automatic with date - trust us, they don’t make automatic movements that good at such an affordable price!
There is definitely a sense of ruggedness to this range of LIV watches because we’re confident that the man who appreciates the classics will appreciate its elegant aesthetic twist. There are seven different designs to choose from in the GX-1A collection, from the Cobalt or Cool Grey models for the truly understated man, to the T.J. Blue, Cobalt or Rose Gold versions for the more extroverted classic man.
Whatever the version of the GX-1A that you choose for your father, he will no doubt appreciate its innately classic attention to detail and finest craftsmanship.
