Designed for formal wear, dress watches are known for their slim profile and timeless appeal. Often reserved for special occasions such as weddings and black-tie affairs, discover our collection of elegant timepieces from brands like A. Lange & Sohne and Patek Philippe.
Comprised of the finest materials, dress watches are essential to any comprehensive watch collection.
What Makes a Dress Watch?
Made for those special moments and semi-formal occasions, there are a few characteristics that classifies a dress watch. First, these timepieces generally have a smaller or average case size with a slim profile. This allows the watch to seamlessly fit underneath a shirt cuff or suit sleeve. Another common characteristic of dress watches is they feature a leather strap or a very slim bracelet. Again, this is to allow the watch to easily fit underneath formal attire. However, that doesn’t mean that these pieces aren’t easily noticed. Crafted with precious metals and sometimes diamonds, these heirloom-quality watches are made to pass down for generations.
