The days leading up to a wedding are prime time for searching for the ideal finishing touch. As the wedding season approaches, a common thought among the brides is what to wear on their wrists. Even in this age of high-tech smart watches, when it comes to weddings and other accoutrements, everyone wants a Rolex or a Rado, however, as the ultimate fashion icon, Coco Chanel, once said, “Simplicity is the hallmark of all true elegance.” This piece of fashion advice is spot-on when it comes to timepieces that may not hurt your bank balance as much.
They complete the look perfectly. Without a doubt, they must not steal the show, more like a supporting player rather than the lead. The rather affordable watches will grab people’s attention without being overly showy, but even supporting characters deserve their moment in the spotlight.
To get you started, here are five of our favorite timepieces, ranging from ultra-hip and modern to timelessly elegant and iconic in an attainable price bracket.
The Elegant Sparkle: Titan Raga Cocktails
Titan has always held the view that the Raga woman is the epitome of beauty and grace. Her unique and brilliant brilliance reflects the splendor of her inner being. The kind of radiance that lights you up from the inside out.
The Raga Cocktails collection was motivated by this unique and inherent radiance. A line of Swarovski-studded wristwatches designed to reflect the sophistication of today’s Raga woman. Every watch is a stunning monument to unsurpassed beauty, from the mother-of-pearl dials to the magnetic clasps and the gorgeous cocktail rings. For a bride who loves elegant sparkle, this is the perfect match!
The Bold: Oris Candy
As a bride, you’re expected to wear a lot of jewellery. But are you someone who loves standing out? Well then, this pop of color on your wrist is just fitting. Simply said, the new Divers Sixty-Five “Cotton Candy” goal is to make people happy. Oris’s all-bronze case, bezel, crown, and bracelet configuration from the Hölstein Edition 2020 serves as the basis for this new model, which also features a vibrant color palette featuring dials in sky blue, wild green, and lipstick pink.
The 38mm case is designed to appeal to both genders, and the patina forms on bronze during its delightful natural oxidation process adding a unique narrative layer. Powered by automatic Swiss-made mechanical movements, each model maintains the same high standards for which the Divers Sixty-Five series has been known: a domed sapphire crystal, water resistance to 10 bar (100 meters), and hands and applied indexes filled with luminous Super-LumiNova®. Why call it “Cotton Candy?” For the simple reason that these timepieces aim to spread a feeling of comfort and hope for brighter days. Just like your wedding day!
The Classics: Grand Seiko Elegance Collection STGK011
You can never really go wrong with a classic timepiece. An accessory that effortlessly sits on your wrist, adding the right amount of oomph you need. Simply strapping the watch around your wrist will give you the impression that it was made specifically for you. Intricately contouring your wrist, this bezel-less timepiece features a sapphire crystal with a dome. It’s aesthetically pleasing and a pleasure to wear.
When viewed from the side, the sleek design of the case really stands out. As a result of the Zaratsu polishing process, the diamonds are exactly aligned along the surface, and the polish is devoid of any distortions, something that can only be achieved by hand. Every edge is smooth to the touch but sharp to the eye, reflecting light in a way that’s in perfect harmony with the diamonds.
All That Glitters: Frederique Constant Highlife Automatic
When it comes to women’s watches, the Highlife Automatic strikes the ideal balance between tradition and innovation. Swapping out the bracelet for the rubber strap that comes with the watch is another way to make it your own.
The date is shown at 3 o’clock on the Highlife Ladies Automatic versions. The hands and appliqué hour markers are iridescent, with the final marker always doubled at 12 o’clock as a hallmark of the Highlife brand, the watch of choice for individuals who value accuracy above all else. There is a transparent case back so you can observe the automatic movement, which has a 38-hour power reserve.
Each of the newest Highlife models features a beautifully adorned dial. All of them share a common design element—a globe—that serves to tie the set together. An ethos that fits right in with Frederique Constant’s, which has long advocated for easily-transferable, high-quality timepieces for as wide an audience as feasible.
Marking The Date: Rado Centrix Diamonds 28mm
As a minimalist timepiece, this is a fantastic option for the big day. The watch is a one-of-a-kind present that will make the recipient the center of attention on any occasion thanks to its classic brown dial and diamond hour markers. In addition to being light, scratch-resistant, and pleasant to wear, the 28mm watch comes with a stainless steel and brown high-tech ceramic band finished in rose gold. The adjustable watch lets you personalize your timepiece with a dash of black or just a touch of silver, and either way, it will serve as a timeless reminder of a special occasion.
To all the brides, we hope we made your choice easy with this buying guide. Your wedding day is the most special day and a timepiece would be just the right addition to it.
