Chic Chronograph

Like a standard chronograph, this Fossil watch doubles as a stopwatch thanks to three faces that track hours, minutes, and seconds. However, it comes in a sleek navy and rose gold combination to up the style factor. Its genuine leather band can be switched with other straps, and its buckle closure means Dad won't have to head to the jeweler to adjust it. ($83, usually $145; amazon.com)
