Watches are a classic fashion accessory that can finish any look. From chunky statement pieces to classic watches that are (ahem) totally timeless, there is a watch to suit everyone.
Wrist watches may not be first on your list of priorities thanks to smart phones taking their place, but they’re so much more than a way to tell the time. Watches can be passed through generations and worn on special occasions like jewellery, they can be engraved with special messages and given as meaningful gifts. Basically, we think a wedding watch should be on your to-buy list.
For grooms, they can form a key part of your look; with fewer accessorising opportunities than the bride, this is a groom’s chance to add a luxe detail to his wedding look. If your groom doesn’t currently own a watch or is in serious need of an upgrade, a piece of stylish wrist candy could also be the ideal wedding morning gift.
Grooms can of course choose a watch as a personal and lasting gift for his bride, with a meaningful engraving as the perfect way to show how you feel on the morning of your wedding.
Watches not only make the perfect gift for brides and grooms, the timepieces are also ideal presents for parents of the happy couple and important members of the bridal party. An engraved watch makes a lasting and thoughtful gift for fathers of the bride or groom or the best man in particular.
