Seiko 5 Sports Active Blue Ref. SRPB89J1
Japanese watch company, Seiko, has not stopped making amazing timepieces since 1881, and Seiko 5 Sports Active Blue Ref. SRPB89J1 is one of the gems. Seiko 5 exhibits a sporty look with five main attributes which are a self-winding automatic movement, resistance to water, a day-date in a single window, a recessed crown, and a sturdy case. These traits suit dads who still have very active lifestyles.

Steinhart Ocean 1 Black Ceramic
Again, one of the best watches under $500 comes from Steinhart. Having the same type as the previous one, Ocean 1 Black Ceramic carries one different feature that is beneficial especially for dads around the world. It is a date magnifier.
This part makes the date-display bigger meaning your dad can see the date easier and better. When there are no light sources, the dial will glow because of the SuperLuminova applied on the markers and hands. It surely helps dad to read time clearly, doesn’t it?
