Celebrate the man of the hour

PHILIPPINE cinema’s “big classic” John Lloyd Cruz wears the Swatch Big Classic Caterhblack

Traditionally, fathers provided for their families while mothers nurtured the children. In today’s modern world, role reversals are commonplace but one thing remains unchanged: whether stay-at-home or office-bound, fathers will always be the larger-than-life men who keep us safe from the dangers of the world.

This Father’s Day, tell dad how much you appreciate his efforts. The dad who gave you all the time in his life deserves to be recognized, and what better way to do so than with a classic timepiece?

Swatch’s stylish “Big Classic” collection brings together timeless elegance and fine Swiss workmanship to create a first-class masculine lineup that is understated yet sophisticated.

For the man who loves leather, the Appia and Trueville’s leather bands will be the perfect fit. The minimalist dials in either white or black will be the perfect accessory to go with dad’s


buttoned-up work suits.

For dads who love to relax on weekends by trading in his slacks for shorts and a pique shirt, the gorgeous vintage-looking dials of the Caterhred and Caterhblack is the perfect casual Swatch.

Swatch has also come out with a stainless-steel range that is sleek and polished. The Beaulieu’s black and orange dial is at once sophisticated and youthful, while the Sedan’s two-toned metallic finish is sexy and elegant. The Star Chief’s celestial appeal is universal, and the dial’s sapphire hue goes well with any outfit.
