    Watch for my dad

    Hi,
    I am looking to buy a watch for my dad using the salary of my first job. Given the sentimental value and considering my meager salary i am looking to spend upto $200-$250 max.
    My dad is a 60 yr old retired professor. Any suggestions what I could get him? I am clueless about watches. Thats why I would really appreciate some good advice regarding this.

    Thnx heaps in advance.

    Specifically an ultra-chron. Classy understated & dignified.

    Good luck

    Never heard od mondaine... checked out the site nice, but cases are quite small..
    Good info.. There's plenty out there for a $250 limited. The key is to get something that suits a 60yr old man.. Needs to be a bit more classy

    What is needed is the classic watch, most likely a brown leather strap with a gold tone or stainless steel case.

    These Models are probably the best looking ones from Seiko
    SNT003
    SNT007
    SNT006
    SNT017

    The one that I think would be best would be the SNT006.

    These are available here:

    I like this one as well as it is a bit more modern:

    Can't swim don't worry I have a dive watch.
