My dad is 73 and in the early stages of Alzheimer's. It is starting to get to the point that he can't remember what day it is. Mom will be retiring this Spring, and they will be moving. I'm afraid this might increase his confusion.
I would like to get him a high quality watch as a gift –maybe have the case back engraved. Iwant it to be something he would be proud to wear every day, and remind himthat his son loves him.Mostimportantly, I want it to have a real clear Day / Date display so that he willbe reminded what day it is so he will stop asking mom!Although I’m a huge fan of automatics, Ibelieve that a very reliable Quartz would require less maintenance and be easierfor him to live with.
So what would be aquality Quartz Day / Day movement?Whatbrands would be best to consider?Nosub-dials or complicated faces – something clear and easy to read at a glance(40-45mm).Also, I would prefer abracelet over a strap for durability.Maybe a “desk diver” because of the easy visibility and water resistance-- as long as the bezel was subdued in design.
Mainstream brands, or microbrands OK. Thanks for the suggestions!
