Precision, performance, and style
Watches for Father’s Day, curated by Silicon Valley’s premier timepiece experts Stephen and Jared Silver
Hermès Arceau “78”
Invoking the French Maison’s unique blend of whimsy, polish, and horological prowess, the Hermès Arceau “78” is the perfect watch for those who want a high-quality yet everyday timepiece. This timepiece is a study in subtle contrasts, from its polished case to its grain-textured dark grey dial and textured bezel. Its parchment-colored hands and italicized numerals evoke mid-century watches, aged to perfection. The date window at 6 o’clock matches the numerals on the dial, and the watch is delivered on a barenia-colored leather strap, exhibiting the leatherworking mastery that is synonymous with Hermes.
Bell & Ross BRV2-93 GMT BLUE
For the man who is a consummate traveler, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry recommends gifting the Bell & Ross BRV2-93, which allows the wearer to track up to three time zones at once. It features a 12-hour hand, an independently adjustable red 24-hour hand, and a rotating 24-hour bezel in blue and grey that delineates night and day and can be configured to display the third time zone. The watch is also ready to withstand any of the rigors of the road life with water resistance up to 100 meters, and large, high-contrast white numerals that offer crisp legibility against a sunray blue dial. The gray and blue striped elastic canvas strap (with light stretch) completes its practical yet stylish look.
