Ever thought about proposing with a luxury watch instead of a ring? A watch can be just as expensive if not more than an engagement/anniversary ring, and also serves as a jewelry piece for both men and women. A good quality watch can last for many years without service, can be engraved, and can even be handed down from generation to generation. Here's a great article from "AskMen" that may get you to veer from the norm!
Thereís a myth that on leap years a woman can propose to a man, rather than the traditional way. In case you've misplaced your calendar, February 29th is in two Wednesdaysí time. So, letís say your sweetheart is readying that proposal. While itís normal for a man to pop the question with a diamond engagement ring, that isnít going to work the other way around. Instead, why not a wedding watch?
Even if itís not for proposing, Iíve heard of women giving their husbands watches in the ceremony instead of a wedding ring. The key in either case is to pick a watch thatís going to last a lifetime -- presumably youíre hoping that the marriage will, too -- and that can be worn on special occasions but is also veratile. Finally, it should reflect the emotional meaning of your union. -"AskMen"
