Meanwhile, every man tends to have a dream watch or a “holy grail” watch – a timepiece that they’ve had their eye on for a while. The engagement watch is a gift that your future husband can wear on the wedding day, and every day after, so it’s well worth the splurge. It’s also customary for men to pass on their timepiece to their sons, so you can also think of it as an heirloom piece.
When buying a watch for the groom, you can’t go wrong with iconic sport pieces like the Rolex Submariner and GMT-Master, while quintessential dress watches like the Patek Philippe Calatrava and Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso are timeless and engravable options. If you’re after a heritage piece that won’t break the bank, the Omega Speedmaster is the perfect choice.
