If you want to show love and appreciation for your dad, make him feel extra special on Father’s Day! This occasion calls for a fine gift they can use for a long time, like Rotate Watches. More than just a timepiece to wear, this gift choice for dads allows them to tinker and challenge themselves by building their own watch!
With Rotate Watches, dads (or husbands or any father figure!) can put together their own mechanical watch. The good news is that you can choose a particular all-in-one kit to gift, which includes parts, tools, and a guide.
A special gift for dads who love to tinker. Rotate Watches is a DIY gift that’s simply rewarding! Whether they fancy creating their own mechanical watch or just like challenge in general, dads will constantly be reminded that they built something impressive when they look at the time. Watchmaking takes some time to complete depending on the difficulty level you choose, saving your ears from hearing dad jokes for quite a while! Kidding aside, they will love this unique Father’s Day gift and it’s also something they can keep forever.
There are two types of kits to choose from: Watchmaking Kit and Movement Kit. The Watchmaking Kit comes with an already assembled movement, while the Movement Kit comes with an option to receive assembled or disassembled movement. Watchmaking is already challenging as it is, but Movement Kits help them grasp the intricate inner workings of the watch and build the movement from the ground up. Every watch kit also comes with a lifetime limited warranty!
If your giftee is an extra competitive, Edison, Galileo, and Wright watchmaking kits with high difficulty level are the best options. For medium difficulty, Eiffel and Newton are the best choices. Watchmaking kits start at $195, while Movement kits start at $140. Local shipping is free for orders above $150 and varies for international orders.
Gifting is easy too! Just choose a kit and ship it straight to the recipient. You can also send your gift specially packaged in wrapping paper and ribbons, along with a handwritten message for an additional $7.
