Choosing the Right Watch For Your Groom

It’s
no secret; most men love watches. They are subtle status symbols and the right
timepiece, even for those who know little about them, can be the perfect
accessory. Nothing exudes sophistication like the subtle flick of a wrist,
especially when a beautiful watch demonstrates the cultured taste of its
wearer.
Choosing the Right Watch For Your Groom


There
are no doubt watches make great gifts, and many women are buying them for their
husbands and fiancés. It’s a thoughtful present, but it can be overwhelming to
choose the right one in the crowded luxury watch market. There are many
reputable watch companies that provide a
vast array of options, but it’s important to take into account the specific
needs your groom might have. Just like every man, every watch is different. So,
let’s go over some of the factors to consider when choosing the right watch for
your groom.
Price
This
is one of the most obvious, yet vital components to consider when choosing the
perfect timepiece. The fact is, watches range from a few dollars to millions,
and everywhere in between. This is due to a great many factors, including
quality, brand prominence, marketability, internal movement, and stylistic
design, among others. It’s obvious that a watch built with an 18K gold face
embellished with diamonds is going to cost significantly more than one that
uses more modest materials. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with buying
an expensive watch, there’s also nothing wrong with purchasing a more modest
one. Both can be beautiful and well-made.
The
first step in making your purchase is to plan how much you are willing to
spend, and shop in that price range. Whether you can spend $50 dollars or
$500,000, there are plenty of quality options.
Specific
Features
Is
your fiance an avid swimmer? Make sure the watch is water resistant. Does he
love driving and luxury car racing? There are countless luxury watches that are
designed with racing aesthetics and features in mind. Does he go from work to
casual events in the same day? If so, he may need a more versatile design, a
timepiece that looks equally stylish with a suit or a t-shirt.
Take a
quick mental inventory of what he does during the day. Think about the
environments and activities he engages on a daily basis, and select a watch
that caters to those needs. It’s a thoughtful, insightful step that shows how
well you know him, and he’s sure to appreciate the attention to detail.
Movement
A
watch’s movement, or caliber, is the set of mechanical components that keep the
watch running properly and accurately. Like any finely-tuned machine, it can
get complicated, but these nuts and bolts literally determine the wide variety
of prices of many watches on the market. The craftsmanship and precision
engineering that go into the movement of a timepiece are very important to
people who know the ins and outs of horology, whether in timepieces or in
manual clocks.
If
your husband is a watch enthusiast, sticking with one of the more established
Swiss premium brands might be a wise choice as they take movement very
seriously, and have dedicated significant resources to making sure performance
is a priority. Though the process for reputable and attainable Swiss watches
can be intimidating and confusing, there are many boutiques, like
Minnesota-based
TimeScape USA, that specialize in showcasing
a variety of high-quality pieces  for collectors and watch enthusiasts
everywhere.

Style
Style
and design are some of the most important aspects to consider when choosing a
watch. Ultimately, a watch is an accessory, and it should reflect the wearer’s
style and sensibilities. You know how he dresses, what he likes and dislikes,
and all the incredible swift mechanical crafting in the world means nothing if
he doesn’t like how it looks or if it doesn’t fit his style.
Just
as you would consider a timepiece for its functional versatility, you should
also think about how your fiance dresses on a day to day basis. If he wears a
suit for work every day, then a classic design with a leather strap may be the
one. Or, if he dresses casually, then a more sporty or rugged watch may be the
way to go.
The
Perfect Watch
Everyone
is different, and you know your groom far better than most others do. If you
keep these ideas and priorities in mind, you will find a timepiece he’ll be
sure to love. Price and style are very important, but if you keep in mind his
lifestyle and the mechanical features he is looking for, we have no doubt you
will find the perfect watch for your groom.
