Getting married is one of the most important events in any man's life, and as such, it calls for a timepiece of suitable distinction. Whether it's for yourself or spouse, put some extra thought into the selection and the new owner will treasure it forever. 

Here are some great options matched to key occasions:

The First Anniversary – Tudor Heritage Black Bay, $2,500

Congratulations – some couples don't even make it this far. But you have, and the Tudor Black Bay is a suitable reward that's not too expensive but built to last. 

The Third Anniversary – IWC Spitfire Mark XV, $2,850

This is the "leather" anniversary, and so obviously a leather strap watch is called for, and you can't do much better than this classic IWC at the price.

The One to Pair With a Trip – Bremont Jaguar MKIII, $3,000

Not just any trip; a trip to England where you'll rent a classic Jaguar E-Type – the car this British watch was made to honor – and remember it forever.

The 10 Year Splurge – Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, $3,000

What else but a Rolex would suit such an important milestone? Obviously, you could spend more but this spiffy vintage gold-plated Oyster Perpetual is a beauty.

The 11th Anniversary – Rolex Datejust, $3,600

This is the "steel" anniversary, and a classic steel Datejust on a jubilee band is the best way to celebrate, hands down. At 36mm it's a great size too.

For Renewing Your Vows – Cartier Tank MC, $3,551

This is something many couples choose to do and the accompanying watch should be as timeless as the relationship you are celebrating.

The 15th Anniversary – Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Skeleton, $3,500

This is the "crystal" anniversary, and so the suitable timepiece is a skeleton model with the face covered in sapphire crystal so the movement is visible. 

For Celebrating Your First Child As Well – Omega Speedmaster, $3,500

On this occasion you'll want a true heirloom that can be passed down to your son some day, and so on. What better than an iconic Speedmaster for the job?

The 25th Year – Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra GMT, $4,950

This is the "silver" anniversary, so a silver-colored knockout like this more masculine take on the iconic Reverso is the perfect quarter century marker.

The Ultimate Gift – Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso, $12,000

Your 50th or golden anniversary might be a ways off, but if you want to go big, precious metal is the power move. This is pure love in watch form.
