The Adventurer

Items with mass appeal are not his thing, his style is sporty and progressive, and he has a soft spot for exclusive design with smart details. Our ideas for Father’s Day check all the boxes: The I.N.O.X. Titanium Professional Diver, a diving watch with an extremely lightweight hypoallergenic case, a hand-woven paracord strap, and water resistance to 200 metres, as well as the Fisherman pocket knife with 17 functions, including scissors, a fish scaler, and a hook disgorger – both ensure that this man is perfectly equipped for survival in the urban jungle.

The Urban Nomad

He loves the simple and the straightforward, minimalism is his motto, and his possessions all feature maximum utility and a long shelf-life. Our recommendations for Father’s Day: a Victorinox Barbecue Fork with an extendable stainless steel fork and a wooden handle, or the Swiss Tomato and Table Knife with an ergonomic polypropylene handle and an ultra-sharp wavy-edge blade that cuts fruit and vegetables with maximum precision. Both have a character fully in tune with the life plan of modern urban dwellers: simplicity.

Why do we celebrate Father’s Day?

The gentlemen of this world have Sonora Louise Smart Dodd to thank for that, an American who first celebrated this day back in 1910 to give thanks to her dearly beloved dad. The custom has since become widespread and is now celebrated in a variety of countries with very different rituals. In Switzerland, Father’s Day falls on the first Sunday in June every year. In 2019 it will be on Sunday, June 2. The purpose of Father’s Day is essentially to create an equivalent to Mother’s Day and to honour fathers and celebrate fatherhood. So in this spirit – here’s to happy fathers everywhere and to a successful Father’s Day with Victorinox!
