Quality time with dad

By Alvin Uy Philippine Daily Inquirer June 12,2019

Some of the best bonding moments are spent outdoors

Our hardworking fathers may not be around all the time because they spend a lot of their time in their careers or managing their businesses, making sure our future is secured. Spending endless hours at the office or even overseas working, make quality time with dad a real challenge. Depending on what type of dad you have, here are a couple of motoring inspired ideas where one can celebrate the ultimate quality time with our dad.

Are you ready for your next outdoor adventure?

Camping, or “glamping” for those city slickers, has always traditionally been an activity associated with father and son bonding. Either as a school based activity or simply a father and son quality time, there has been a resurgence in outdoor lifestyle activities. This is a good time also to stay away from too much online activities and do some digital detox. Even experts agree and encourage more outdoor time where kids can enjoy and benefit from physical activities.

Mounting your 4×4 with proper wheels and tires is essential for any off-roading activity

One such place is the Overland Kings, it is an outdoor concept store that carries equipment such as vehicle roof racks, portable toilets and refrigerators, outdoor lighting systems and vehicle mounted tents and canopies. They also carry Black Rhino wheels suitable for off-roading activities. Their showroom is located at Km. 15, West Service Road, Paranaque, or follow Black Rhino Wheels Philippines Outlet Store on Facebook and Instagram.

Aside from the essentials like tents and sleeping bags, your 4×4 vehicle should also be equipped for the job if you plan to go to a remote location with unpaved roads. With so many options and popularity of 4×4 models in the market, the aftermarket industry wasn’t far behind. From outdoor equipment and accessories to off-road upgrades, one can easily equip their 4×4 SUVs or pickup trucks from mild-to-wild custom set ups. The most basic upgrade is changing to bigger and more capable wheels and tires. This is where the modification of 4×4 vehicles and pick up trucks come in. Black Rhino Wheels has been one of the most visible brands in the Philippines when it comes to upgrading wheels for your SUV or pick up truck. They also promote the lifestyle of off-roading as a good way to wind down and also bond with family or friends. Black Rhino Wheels is distributed by Concept One Wheels located in 318 Santolan Road, San Juan or visit www.blackrhinowheels.ph online.

The ultimate quality timekeeper

Rolex has always been synonymous with well-built timepieces using the best grade of materials and are designed to withstand heavy wear-and-tear and the harshest of environments. From the lowest depths of the sea to the highest mountain peak, Rolex timepieces have been worn and depended on by the world’s best adventure seekers. That is why they are often confused as a “luxury” brand. Although they have timepieces made of 18 carat gold cases and encrusted with precious stones, Rolex watches are first and foremost tool watches.

Paul Newman and his legendary Rolex Daytona watch fetched over US$17million in an auction in 2017

The ultimate and most collectible timepiece in the Rolex collection would be the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. The original model was introduced in 1963, it is the ultimate tool watch for dad with a burning passion for driving and motorsports. The Cosmograph Daytona was created to meet the demands of professional racing drivers and for more than 50 years it still continues to be a class of its own among sport chronographs largely thanks to motorsports icons like Hollywood actor and accomplished racecar driver Paul Newman, whose own personal Rolex Daytona watch was recently sold at an auction for over US$17million.

The current model Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in stainless steel is the ultimate quality “time” one can give to daddy

The retail price of the new stainless steel Daytona is P664,500 if you are fortunate enough to be able to find one. Demand is so high for this timepiece that resellers are selling it for twice the amount. This is one father’s day gift your dad will never forget.
