Why should kids have all the fun? Around the Man of Many office, we’re just as partial to a good toy as any sprog, it’s just that we prefer our LEGO sets to be a little more sophisticated than your average pirate ship and the wheels on our bikes have a larger circumference. Here, we’ve collected some of the very best items to play with, so without further ado, welcome to Man of Many’s Father’s Day Gift Guide 2022 – Big Boy Toys.
GR Supra GTS Manual
In partnership with Toyota
“Hey Dad, I love you so much that I got you a brand new GR Supra GTS for Father’s Day.” Now there’s a sentence every father wants to hear! Meanwhile, Toyota Australia’s iconic sports car will soon be available in manual transmission. With a bespoke six-speed manual gearbox, this already formidable ride delivers an improved drive experience as it cruises through open roads and city streets alike.
Just a reminder: GR Supra was the first model in the automaker’s evolving TOYOTA GAZOO racing brand. Drawing from a rich motorsport heritage, the upcoming GTS Manual version is effortlessly sharp, impeccably fast, and available in a variety of colours. Thanks to a suspension and steering retune, it provides even more dynamic handling than ever before. The high-grade GTS model also features brand new 19″ forged alloy wheels.
Look for the GR Supra GTS Manual to arrive in the final quarter of 2022, and then give Dad a gift he’ll truly never forget. Of course, we’d certainly understand if you ended up keeping it for yourself. It’s what we would do!
Hublot Square Bang Unico King Gold 42mm
In partnership with Hublot
Your watch-loving father might think he has everything, but he doesn’t have this. An absolute jaw-dropper, Hublot’s Square Bang Unico King Gold 42mm wears its insides on its outsides to glorious effect. Visible through the watch’s square-shaped display is the double coupling system of a mighty Unico 2 calibre. Whilst similar to its iconic predecessor, the movement features upgrades in the form of a new and thinner automatic winding system.
A masterpiece of mechanics, this horological powerhouse also makes wizard-like use of precious metal. As a master of fusion and an alchemist of precious metals, Hublot has developed a new gold colour with a warmer shade than the traditional 5N 18K gold. Containing mainly platinum, this exclusive King Gold alloy perfectly lends itself to all elements of polishing and satin finishing. The size of the case is also an important factor to ensure this model is perfectly ergonomic, providing comfort on the wrist very similar to that of the 42 mm Big Bang. Combine it with the black rubber strap and you get even more dimension out of this already labyrinthian stunner. Will it set you back a pretty penny? Yes. But it just might blow your father’s mind and who can put a price on that?
In partnership with Forcite
Thrill-seeking dads are the coolest dads but they tend to live on the edge of danger. This ultra-sleek helmet brings them back into safe terrain without compromising their pursuit of adventure or style. Crafted by Sydney’s own Forcite, it comes with a built-in HD camera along with a patented peripheral vision light display. As a result, riders gain new tiers of awareness to their surroundings whilst keeping pace with vital road and navigation alerts.
Not just safer than the standard fare, the Forcite MK1S also packs in plenty of modern perks. That includes a Harmon and Kardon premium audio system for high-fidelity music and clear calls. There’s also a high-tech lid that was made directly by the brand with biker dads in mind. Put all these features together and you get a helmet fit for a superhero, which takes inspiration from Tony Stark and thus brings out the Iron Man in every wearer. Order before Dad’s day and receive $250 off a special Father’s Day Forcite Pack, use code Dad01. It currently ships in 4 to 6 weeks, but by September that delivery window will go down to 3-5 days once the customer backlog is removed. Don’t wait to order one.
