Baselworld and Picking Watchwear for Your Wedding

Mar 24, 2011

Baselworld, the World Watch & Jewelry Show, kicks off today in Switzerland. In honor of this week featuring the most innovative watch and jewelry designs in the world, we’re going to give you a few tips on how to choose a watch to wear with your wedding attire. Like everything else in your wedding design, the watch you select should reflect the theme of the wedding and the style of clothing. Having a fitting watch can add just the right touch to your entire look. Here are a few common wedding themes and examples of suitable watches.

Beach/Destination Wedding

After the tremendous snow we’ve had this winter season, who wouldn’t want to pack up their bags and head south for an early taste of sunshine? Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular. It’s a way to make the wedding a bonding experience for family and friends as well as the bridal party. Weddings turn into a several day celebration with welcome packages, pre-wedding activities, and last minute preparations. With the more casual atmosphere of the destination wedding, we recommend diving watches that have that high-class look, but can still take a beating from the ocean atmosphere. Also, take advantage of being able to use more fun, whimsical watch colors in this relaxed atmosphere.

Modern Classic

If you have a flair for style and sleek design, a low-key wedding is not in your future. Your wedding theme revolves around tuxedos, cocktails, elaborate floral arrangements, a wedding dress that makes a statement . . . all the hallmarks that you and your spouse-to-be subscribe to a new-age elegance. You’ll need to select a watch with the kind of panache that matches your up-scale thinking. Below are four watches that will hold the test of time in regards to an inherit classiness that will never go out of style.

Rock ‘n Roll

This is for all of you couples who veer away from the traditional wedding track. Instead of pastels and pearls, your wedding theme takes on a much more unique anachronistic flavor in the vein of rockabilly, steampunk, or Victorian Gothic. The watches we’ve selected are distinctly glamorous with a darker appeal. Modern watches that take risks with design and function would fit well with an experimental rock ‘n roll vibe.

As we’ve mentioned before, vintage and retro designs are making a big impact on fashion these days and the watch world is no exception. Several top-tier watch brands have started to issue remakes of famous past designs such as TAG Heuer and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Other brands such as DeWitt are returning to art deco roots with new designs that will be released at Baselworld. Luckily, this leaves a whole range of vintage-inspired watches for you to choose for your wedding with styles varying from the roaring 20’s, art deco, and the modernism of the forties and fifties.
