Father’s Day is coming up in June, and there will be tons of “world’s greatest dad” gear getting gifted, we’ve no doubt. What if you want to mix it up some, and tell your dad that he’s a star in your world? Then you’ve got the Swatch Star Dad helping you out.

Watches like this are really where the versatility of a Swatch can shine. Come up with a new dial, pop it into one of their Jelly cases, and get the right color strap in there, and voila – a new design ready for the occasion. Is this a watch that you’ll be handing down to the next generation? Certainly not, but it is a watch that will put a smile on the face of even the most jaded watch collector, we’ve no doubt.

If you want to get one of these, leave yourself enough time for shipping. The Swatch Star Dad is available now from Swatch, and will run you $110, including the different color loops that can be added to the strap to signify what your dad means to you. swatch.com
