What kind of watch do you wear to a summer wedding?

 

As the wedding announcements fill your feeds and invitations reach your inbox, you’re ready to start making your summer wedding plans. No matter the venue – a backyard barbecue or a stunning country club affair – you can choose a watch that complements all of your wedding looks.

Master your wedding guest style with the perfect finishing touch. Here’s what to look for in a watch that will take you through summer wedding season:

Class act

Your watch should add to your wedding look, but not overwhelm it. Simple clock faces, clasps, and straps are usually the best bet. Aim for chic, neutral colors and cut-above-casual strap materials, such as leather and stainless steel, for a classy finish. High-quality hardware and craftsmanship will also elevate the elegance. Remember that lighter colors and materials tend to work better during the hot summer months.

Master your wedding guest style with the perfect finishing touch.

Versatile hero

Those simple and neutral design elements also lend themselves to versatility, which allows you to match every wedding celebration without changing your timepiece. If you don’t want to be entirely limited, consider purchasing a few bands to switch up your watch look depending on your outfit and the wedding vibes. As long as your watch face and case are relatively neutral, you should have several types of straps to choose from.

Durable companion

Along with complementing your looks and various wedding themes, venues and times, your summer wedding watch should be crafted to keep up with you through the celebrations. Make sure you choose a watch designed with durability in mind so you can feel confident that it will last through this wedding season – and many more to come. Look for heavy-duty features, such as water or weather resistance, long-lasting battery life, and authentic materials.

Ideal timepiece

You can rely on a Timex® watch to be the classy, versatile and durable timepiece that attends every summer wedding with you. Consider some of our thoughtfully crafted timepieces for men and women:

5 quick tips to buy watches online

 

Are you worried about purchasing a watch without trying it on first? The good news is that online tools can help you make more confident buying decisions.

Here are a few tips to follow as you shop for your new watch online:

1. Talk to customer service representatives

Sometimes, all it takes is talking to someone to feel better about your purchase. When you’re not in the store, it may seem like you’re alone in your buying experience. However, most watch retailers offer digital customer service solutions, allowing you to contact their representatives to answer your questions about fit, styles, quality of materials, return policies and more.

2. See if your question is frequently asked

There’s a chance many online customers have the same questions and concerns that pop into your head as you browse the options. That’s why watch retailers compile help desk answers and lists of frequently asked questions to save consumers the time needed to contact customer service.

3. Seek consumer advice

Keep scrolling down on product pages, and you should come to a list of customer reviews. It’s helpful to hear what other consumers say, especially since they’ve already purchased and worn the product. Plus, check out the brand’s social media pages, where you can find lots of consumer engagement with the company and its watches. Talk to your friends and family, too. You can certainly trust their opinions on the timepieces they wear, which may help you feel more confident when selecting a specific watch brand or style.

4. Narrow your selection

Just as you would gravitate to certain colors or designs in the store, take advantage of search filters to narrow your results by specific features. For instance, shop by trending styles, collections, colors, strap materials, watch types, dial shape or size and so on. Even if you don’t have a clear idea of the type of watch you’re looking for, it’s much easier to digest a smaller list of specific results, rather than sifting through endless pages of all the watch styles offered.

5. Check out the return policy

For an added layer of confidence, remember that you can always return the watch you end up buying and even exchange it for a different one. At Timex, for instance, we want you to love your watch. If for some reason you don’t, our customer service representatives are here to help you return the timepiece and find your perfect match.

While we still don’t have the technology to digitally try on watches, these tools can make online shopping feel more like the personal experience of browsing selections in stores.
