AskMen.com wanted me to come up with a list of "top 10 graduation watches." This wasn't easy, but I do know that a good graduation watches should be conservative, tasteful, perfect for the first job interview, and also be a sentimental item you can keep for a long time. So I can up with list of mid to entry level luxury watches for most budgets. Timeless watches that he will appreciate as a new grad and years down the road.
I wholeheartedly agree with the Victorinox as a graduation present. Perhaps the higher ends pieces if they achieved some sort of scholastic awards along the way as well. Definitely get the graduate an automatic or manual winder with some sapphire crystal.
I'd be happy with a twenty year old steel and gold datejust too. If you're looking to get rid of one I'll give you my address...
She tells me that the "thing" for young women now is to wear a clunky man's watch, they call them "boyfriend watches" though they usually borrow them from their fathers. I think she would be happy with a twenty year old steel and gold Datejust.
Thanks for the list but it is a little untimely, my son Graduates in two days and is entering Air Force officers candidate school. I chose the Rolex GMT Master II in steel plus a Casio G-Shock to use in training. The Explorer is one of my favorite Rolex.
Next year when my daughter graduates I will buy myself a nice Calatrava as a reward.
Sorry about the untimeliness. But you made a good choice! I mean choices.
Nice about YOUR reward for next year. Doesn't she deserve anything? lol
Jason, we are already online. I am sure there is some place around here an enterprising young watch lover can find some Certina sustenance....
