A watch will be a treasured graduation gift

Watches have long been a traditional graduation gift, and even with the pervasiveness of the cellphone, watches have remained a popular accessory. A watch is a finishing touch that exudes both professionalism and a personal style. People also tend to wear their watches every day, so they become sentimental and meaningful to the wearer.

Personally, two of my favourite jewelry pieces are watches. When I graduated from university my parents had my grandfather’s watch fixed up for me. I cried happy tears when I received, not only because it showed how proud my parents were, but also because wearing the watch made me feel connected to my grandfather. A few years later, one of my sisters gave me a designer watch for Christmas, and it made me feel mature to wear an elegant watch. Both watches are precious to me because they represent my personal development and my family’s love. I am always proud when I wear one of them.                

A Bulova watch is a graduation gift they won’t forget

A grad gift should be something that the recipient will be as happy with at 18 as they will be at 35.  It’s no mistake, then, that the watches featured in this contest are from the Bulova Classic Collection. With ageless, sophisticated designs, these Bulova watches are ideal for gift-giving.

The watches featured in this contest use Quartz movements, which are known for their accurate timekeeping and simple, minimal maintenance, making them perfect for the busy professional or student. Likewise, both watches are water-resistant to 30m and crafted from stainless steel, so they can stand up to daily wear and will continue looking good through the years. I also particularly love the understated but eye-catching monochromatic colour scheme of each watch.

But beyond their physical features, watches, especially those given to grads, are more than just jewelry. They are symbols of growth and maturity, and they are a sign that you, the gift-giver, acknowledge the accomplishments of the recipient. That’s why a watch becomes so special to the wearer. So, when you’re gift shopping for the soon-to-be grad in your life, consider a Bulova watch.
