Relationships with fathers can be complicated, mostly seen in the case of sons, and they can also be quite beautiful, in fact, the best. Being a father is a big task, almost like a day job. However, this job is way more demanding than any corporate gig and is often underpaid. Yet, it is way more rewarding than any bonus or profit. That is what fatherhood is all about. It is a lifelong bond that symbolizes a variety of things. For some, a father is a hero, he is a protector, and of course, for some, he is the provider. Not going too deep into gender stereotypes, let’s just say that father’s need appreciation too. And what better than a watch that screams ‘thank you’?
