Groomsmen Gifts: Is a Watch The Perfect Choice?


Amongst the main responsibilities for the groom on the big day are; making a great speech, looking sharp and providing a meaningful or memorable gift for their best man and groomsmen.

Traditionally the groom gives his best man and groomsmen gifts in recognition of the close friendship they share. Typically, a gift that can be kept to remember the special day. It should be something classically masculine and an item that your friends would use, nobody wants another item which is headed straight for the draw or closet which is already full of novelty socks and similar items that never see the light of day.

A watch can be the perfect choice. It will last for many years and will serve as a reminder whenever your closest friends check the time. It’s also a great choice for the big day itself; with your entourage all wearing the same style of suit, a matching watch really sets things off. The matching watches can also make for some fantastic shots from your wedding photographer.

The Bakersfield watch is the perfect accompaniment to any style of suit. It’s classy and minimalistic, with two interchangeable leather straps. Whether you’re after a watch to go with a black, navy or grey suit, the Bakersfield is the perfect choice. The stunning soft brown leather strap goes fantastically well with any shade of blue, whilst the black strap is a great choice to match with a suit of the same colour or any shade of grey.
