If he’s quite minimal and no fuss, consider grabbing him a Simple Watch Co. Earl Watch. This Australian company makes classic timepieces that are built to last. The Earl Watch is elegant and sophisticated. The beautifully tanned leather straps are accented by a bold white face and the case is made from a scratch-resistant sapphire glass.
