The best weddings I’ve been to are those that find a way to remain simple. There is a reason that classic details stand the test of time – white table linens, black tie dress and hints of metallic colors in the decorations. Now, simple doesn’t mean boring – it’s just focuses your attention on what really matters.
Much like these types of celebrations, a dress watch should check off the same qualifications. It should ooze elegance at its finest and focus on it’s main purpose – telling (uncomplicated) time. There’s nothing worse than complications on a wedding day, why would you want them in your dress watch?
A dress watch shouldn’t distract – from the celebration, from your tailored suit and most importantly from the bride. It should be minimalistic – subtle, understated and charming. It’s purpose isn’t to be worn to the gym or deep sea fishing. It’s best paired with those articles of clothing you wear to make the best impression – a business suit, a dinner jacket and yes, a tuxedo.
With that in mind, we’ve made your wardrobe selection a little easier this wedding season (and for seasons to come) with our top 5 picks for dress watches in 2017.
