IF wallets, ties and razors seem a bit of a cliche as Father's Day gifts, a pair of videophones is sure to go down well.

Videophone with its ability to bring people together face-to-face, despite being miles apart, it is the perfect gift for a family occasion such as Father's Day.

In an era when days turn into years in the twinkle of an eye it is difficult for families to stay in touch. But with a videophone your problems could be over.

To make this year's Father's Day a memorable one, Hongkong Telecom CSL will be giving out a commemorative Father's Day gold coin to customers who buy a pair of videophones before June 20.

Two models are available for $5,388 and $7,988 during the promotion period.

Both have full-colour, motion picture video communications at the touch of a button. No extra video cost is involved and long-distance calls are charged the same way as they are made on normal phones.

On top of this great offer a ''bow tie daddy mug'' will be given as a free gift.
