Style & Grace
There is a timepiece for every occasion. Whether strapped on with rustic leather or sleek metal, it is sometimes the watch that makes the man. As dads and grads are celebrated this month, the gifts that fit their stations of honoring memories or setting off to create new ones are distinguished by a flip of the wrist.

Write This Down
Whether used for signing his John Hancock at his desk or solving Sudoku on the train, a quality pen is an often-underappreciated piece of luxury—one you dare not lose. It’s the ideal sword with which to send a grad into the sortie of his new career. It’s also a way to suggest that dad share some of his wisdom.

Time for a Classic
Wearing a Rolex is about much more than tracking the time. The brand continues to evolve in step with men’s fever for style. Ready for boating season, this pair of Yacht Masters captures the seriousness of the boardroom, but with the ready-for-action feeling of the sea. It’s why your father wore a Rolex, though you may have your own reasons.

Men’s accessories are an expression of character. For the lighthearted guy who doesn’t take himself too seriously (even when donning cufflinks and a tie bar) gift him pieces that convey a relaxed, masculine sense of self. Try those that use various precious and not-so-precious elements together to create bold, unpredictable statements. Shown here:
Green braided rubber bracelet
Gray beaded coral bracelet
Black sapphire sterling silver tie bar
Stingray-texture cuff links
Wolfman polished silver cuff links with garnet eyes
All available at Libutti Jewelers, Huntington, (631) 427-0126
