Buying a present for the man in your life can be a stressful affair and with Father’s Day on the horizon it’s something we want to get just right. There is a sea of gift giving staples to choose from such as a great bottle of wine or artisanal bottle of gin; an amazing dinner or night at the theatre; the latest bestseller or blockbuster to indulge in that might point us in the right direction. And in recent years gift options have increased to include trips away, the latest tech gadgets or the thrill of experiencing skydiving or tank driving but this can still leave us struggling to find that gift that ticks all the right boxes particularly for someone who’s interested are far from pedestrian.
One present, however, that can always be relied upon to hit the spot is a watch. A watch makes a big personal style statement, revealing much about the wearer and lasting well beyond a great dinner or weekend away. Also, each time your partner looks at it he will be reminded of you, a lovely added bonus.
In this technologically driven era, you can’t beat a proper men’s timepiece. The smartwatch most definitely has its place, but if your other half is a bit of a thrill-seeking adrenaline junkie something more robust is called for.

If so, then a Formex watch would the ideal present for your weekend warrior.
