Panerai PAM1109 Luminor Chrono 44mm
In partnership with Panerai and Kennedy
With its stunning geometric interplay, Panerai’s Luminor Chrono is recognisable at first sight. Forged from 316L brushed steel, the watch wraps a circular dial within a square-like case to iconic effect. No less extraordinary are the mechanical underpinnings, such as P.9200 calibre. Consisting of 41 jewels, the in-house movement comes equipped with an anti-shock device and delivers a 41-hour power reserve.
The watch’s legible dial display likewise emanates with one-of-a-kind distinction. Dressed in black with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers, it provides a touch of contrast through the subtle use of blue on specific hands. Moving outward, one finds a tachymeter scale in the external “rehaut” style. Past that are dual pushers on one side of the case and a protected crown on the other.
Water-resistant to 10 bar, this Italian-made chronograph offers the best of form and function alike. Of course, you knew that as soon as you saw the words Panerai Luminor. – AU$13,200
Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Toilette Intense
In partnership with Cosmax
Like the modern man it’s made for, Eau de Toilette Intense delivers the perfect balance of strength and sensitivity. Nothing could be more desirable than the unique fragrance perched within this sleek and sophisticated bottle. At once bold, assertive, and caring, it’s an aroma of our times and for generations to come.
Brought to us by Givenchy Gentleman, this fragrance offers an addictive blend of blue iris and cedarwood. Additional notes such as basil inject the blue iris with aromatic nuance while cardamom enhances vibrancy. Rarely does a scent impart such immediate confidence as this one here. Your dad will love it and so too will everyone who crosses his path. – AU$155
Hugo Boss Anthony Joshua Jacket
In partnership with BOSS
Created by BOSS in collaboration with pro boxer Anthony Joshua, this lightweight hooded jacket makes up part of an exclusive capsule. Offered in a regular fit, it features water-repellent fabric with a touch of comfortable stretch and a micro-structure for added texture. Embossed reflective inserts at the sleeves, back, and hood crank up the dynamic impact.
More than a piece of striking apparel, this jacket is also a celebration of fatherhood. Outside the ring, Joshua’s foremost role in life is that of a dedicated dad to son JJ. They’re captured together in the adjoining marketing campaign, which offers an intimate glimpse behind the scenes. It’s in this spirit that BOSS is hosting an exclusive Father’s Day offer from 16th August to 5th September: Buy 2 get 20% off across polos, t-shirts, and shirts.
Or you can just pick up the amazing jacket and call it a day (a Father’s Day, that is). Between its stylish monochromatic sheen, technical performance, and athletic affiliation, this one’s a champion indeed. – AU$679
Penfolds 2018 St Henri
In partnership with Penfolds
When Penfolds first introduced St. Henri in the early 1950s, the distinctive taste proved a little too unique for most palates. Decades later, it was resurrected and duly embraced by a more adventurous audience. This complex shiraz now exists in a class of its own, remaining steadfast in its refusal to follow industry trends.
Unlike most Aussie red wines, St. Henri rests in a variety of old vats as opposed to new oak barrels. The resulting profile goes light on oak to the point that you might not detect any at all. When young, it imparts a rich and deep character, taking on soft and earthy notes of mocha as it ages.
Whether Dad is a relative novice or seasoned sipper, he’ll relish the eccentric but readily drinkable quality of this outright classic. Here’s hoping he shares. – AU$150
The Balvenie 50-Year-Old Marriage 0614 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Monochrome Low Sneakers
Minimal and masterful, Monochrome’s Low Sneakers are the first of their kind to employ an ultra-matte finish on the entire uppers. Combine that with rubber-coated Italian calf leather construction, lightweight EVA outsoles, and logo detailing, and you get one heck of a statement-making silhouette. – AU$338
Modest Vintage Player Deluxe Medicine Ball Set

5Nines Cask Strength Whisky – 5ND237 Altar Wine Release

Glenfiddich Grand Cru
