The Versatility of a
A timeless watch, worn three different ways for three different occasions.
Surprise your Dad or grad with well made pieces that only get better with age.
Whether you're looking for a gift to give your dad for Father's Day or something for a recent graduate, there are a few considerations to keep in mind to be a good gift-giver. One, you want to treat them to something that they wouldn't buy themselves. Secondly, the gift should be unique and built with care and integrity to show how much you appreciate them. And most importantly, it should be something that they can actually use—an heirloom-quality piece that isn't precious and stands up to daily use. Like an Oris timepiece, for example. The Swiss-made watches are known for their time-honored craftsmanship and dependable movements, but they're rugged enough to be worn everyday—not simply saved for special occasions. To help you give a gift that anyone would be honored to receive, we've rounded up our favorite watches along with a few carefully built items that share the same quality of design and workmanship of a well-built Oris watch.

Inspiration from a few notable commencement speeches.
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
"So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it."
"If you can't do the little things right, you will never do the big things right. And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made—that you made—and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better."
