Featured testimonial - Oliver Bagshaw

Oliver enquired about buying some of our pocket watches quite close to his big day.

We worked closely with him to get the engraving details agreed as quick as possible and his watches were sent out to him in plenty of time to spare.

He was kind enough to provide us some kind words which you can read below:

"A great service from beginning to end, very helpful nothing was too much to ask. I ordered 8 pocket watches pretty last minute.

The pocket watches not only arrived in perfect timing for my wedding day, they looked great all with individual messages in the top quality display boxes, everyone just loved them and they were great value for the quality we received.

I have recommended to friends and would defiantly purchase from you again myself.

Thank you very much for your great service and quality products.

Kind Regards

Oliver Bagshaw

We love hearing how our pocket watches have made a (pocket-sized) difference to wedding days around the world. 

In recent weeks we have started to collect testimonials from satisfied brides and grooms and we would love to hear how they were received on the big day and how you found the process of ordering them etc.

Feel free to email or use the Contact Us page if you would like to feature in our upcoming 'Testimonials' section of our website. 

If you have any photos of the groomsmen and the watches that you’d be happy for us to include that would be great but even if it was just a few lines then that would be more than enough.

Thanks in advance, Aaron

Our new site

One of the most common pieces of feedback we have received since WatchesForWeddings started up nearly a year ago was that people wanted to buy directly on the company website, rather than being redirected to eBay.

Well, that is now possible with our brand new website!

We are now pleased to be able to offer free shipping for UK orders too.

The photos of our pocket watches continue to impress and for that I thank Laura Tipple who has been an absolute gem!

We welcome any more feedback on the new site and our pocket watches which can be sent to us by emailing

Thank you for your continuing support!

Owner, WatchesForWeddings

The story so far...

In early 2012, I was getting ready to get married! As is the case with many grooms, I had two designated jobs; a) sort out the suits and b) pick the thank you gifts for my best men and ushers. 

I wanted to give them something that was both personalised and quality as well as being different to the typical gifts (hip flasks, tankards, pens etc) that you see given out at weddings.

I really struggled!

So, I managed to source some mechanical brass pocket-watches, had quality Rosewood boxes made and had a metal plate engraved with the groomsmen's name and the date of the wedding on.

They went down an absolute treat.

The boys were touched by the gesture and I've never seen a group of lads check the time more in one day!

What it also did was plant a seed of an idea in my mind...
