Ask anybody who has gotten married or planned a wedding, and they’ll probably say the number one stressor was time. Things have to happen so quickly, that even the strictest (and well-intentioned) timelines have a tendency to go off the rails.
When you’ve got a wedding party who has been there all morning, it’s easy to lose track of time. For the groom who gets ready more quickly, than, say the bridesmaids, take advantage of the downtime you have with your groomsmen before the party starts.
Gift them each a unique and one-of-a-kind pocket watch, and you’ll be sure to never miss a moment with your best man, best friends, and groomsmen.
Check out our carefully curated list of 32 unique pocket watches below, and you’ll be sure to find something for everyone.
