Although a watch isn't the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of traditional wedding jewellery, did you know that the right piece can really elevate a look? Surprisingly versatile and elegant, a classic ladies’ watch can elevate your bridal look and also turn into a wardrobe essential once the big day is over.
Brides who are thinking of swapping their bracelets and bangles for a watch should go for something understated, especially if your dress has intricate designs. For instance, if you are wearing a bead-work dress, we recommend a bracelet-style watch from Solvil Titus’ line of ladies' watches. Or, if you are wearing a solid-coloured and simple gown, you can opt for something more exquisite from Guess’ selection of ladies' watches. One thing to keep in mind is that your watch should complement and not overshadow the other elements of your bridal look.
Let us take a look at some classic ladies' watches from brands like Solvil Titus, Fossil, Guess, and Seiko that will be perfect for your big day.
For The Modern Bride
The term “modern bride” has been used to describe women stepping outside social norms and being true to themselves. They are unafraid to embrace their unique personality and sense of style and are generally an inspiration to many friends. To complement the brides who want a subtle bridal-like look and vibes on their big day can opt for watches from the Seiko Lukia’s ladies line.
The Seiko Lukia Chronograph 7T12 Quartz Women Watch is simple, classic, yet beautiful. An automatic watch with manual winding, this watch is designed with a stainless steel case and bracelet. But that’s not all, it is also made with Swarovski crystals, giving it an elegant look. It’s also versatile enough to be worn as an everyday watch when you go into the office.
Alternatively, if you are planning to wear a shorter dress without a train or even a jumpsuit for your wedding shoot, you can also consider the Seiko Lukia SSA794J1 Automatic 4R Open Heart Women Watch. Open heart watches are known to be the most romantic mechanical watches as they compare the balance with the beating heart of a human body, bringing the watch to life. Rose gold in colour with a three-fold clasp and an open heart, say “I do” to this Seiko Lukia ladies' watch before your big day!
For Something Blue
The term “something blue” is commonly mentioned at weddings. Not only is it meant to deflect the evil eye, but it also symbolises love, purity, and fidelity – three qualities believed to be necessary for a long-lasting marriage. While the traditional something blue was a blue wedding garter worn beneath the bride’s white dress, in today’s day and age, you can choose to wear a beautiful blue watch instead.
The Guess Gw0284l1 Clear Cut Quartz Multi-Function Women Watch comes with a stunning blue silicone strap and rose gold coloured case as well as a dial. When worn with your wedding dress, the watch embodies an elevated look with its clear cut dial that gives everyone a glimpse of its movement as well as your wrist.
For something more subtle and understated, you can browse Fossil’s line of ladies' watches for the Fossil Es4901 Scarlette Mini 3 Hands Date Quartz Women Watch featuring a sunray dial with Roman numerals at the 12 and six-hour markers, a three-hand date movement, and a rose-gold stainless steel bracelet.
For The Classic Bride
Walk down the aisle and say your forever vows with Solvil Et Titus’ selection of ladies' watches. The Solvil Et Titus Ring & Knot W06-03158-005 3 Hands Quartz Women Watch is a rose gold watch bracelet, with its buckle design inspired by the Chinese Love Knot. Embracing the beauty of everlasting love, the bezel is a classic ring – a symbol of never-ending love; a distinct diamond pattern for eternity characterises the dial. When worn on your big day, the ring emphasises the thought of a forever promise, giving a stronger meaning to the love you share with your partner.
Another feminine watch to wear on your big day is the Solvil Et Titus Fair Lady W06-03155-001 3 Hands Date Quartz Women Watch. Boasting smooth curves, the case is embellished with sparkling crystals and decorated with a touch of pearl. This watch brings out its wearer’s elegance and femininity. Radiating sophistication and class with every minute that passes, the watch is also perfect for everyday wear.
