Looking for that one thing to make your wedding day just a little bit more special? The perfect dress watches for grooms! It has become a bit of a tradition for the bride to gift her future husband a watch on their wedding day - Perfect for celebrating the next step of your relationship and momentous occasion. Your husband can wear it on the wedding day and every day after and whenever he looks down at his wrist, he’ll think of you.
On your special day you should opt for a dress watch. Why? You want something to elevate his black-tie look and something that is thin enough to fit under a sleeve cuff. Therefore, all the larger chronographs or dive watches fall away. You are also looking to complement his look rather than overpower it. Plus, you’d like the watch to be classic enough to weather finicky changes in style trends and last a lifetime. It is “until death do us part” right? Longevity, class and sophistication are therefore three prerequisites the dress watch should embody.
Here a few do’s and don’ts when it comes to picking the perfect dress watch for your man. A leather strap is deemed more traditional than a metal bracelet. Match the leather strap of the dress watch with the colour of his shoes and belt to ensure a unison overall look. The watch should sit underneath his shirt cuff. Keep the dial of the watch looking clean and simple looking. Don’t go for a smartwatch. Is there anything less romantic than receiving a notification during the ceremony? We think not.
