Want to see what our past customers have fit on their engraved watches? Follow us on IG or check out the engraving spotlight section of our blog where you have engraving inspiration, the story behind the quote, with a spotlight on the couple's love story.

If you're curious of why the spacing is off for some of the quotes, it's because the quotes come from the same bigger quote. I've broken it up in different ways to best fit on an engraving.
