I think putting your fiance’s initials on it is a great idea.  It’s really awesome that the watch has made through that many generations to you.  I read in Dear Abby once that pocket watches are a traditional wedding gift from the bride to the groom, they are supposed to help the groom get to the ceremony on time.  I think it’s the perfect gift, no need to get anything else except maybe a card to explain how special the watch is.  Congratulations.

I think that your fiance will love it. Instead of having his name and the wedding date engraved on it though, I would enclose a card with it. The reason for the no engraving is because if you and him are planning a family some time in the future, it will be easier to pass down to the next generation without the engraving. Technically, this watch would be from your father to him, so if I were you, I would also get him something else.

I think this is a very special and sentimental gift. Perhaps if you want to pass it on to your kids (if you are having kids) something other to engrave? Maybe a special quote or something? Anyway, yes stick with this gift, I bet it will mean a lot to him!
