How to buy a Wrist Watch?


Watch is the classiest accessory you can get your hands on. Rather than just telling the time, they are the neatest accessory. Whether it's a first timepiece or just adding another new timepiece to your extensive collection there are certain factors that should be considered before buying a wristwatch

Watch Style

Style being the first and utility the second, are two things significant factors to consider whenever buying a watch. If you are an active person who moves a lot with a ton of activities, go for a sports watch, or even if you prefer a casual attire than a formal.

When you need a watch for office or for formal occasions go for a classy leather or metal strap watch. These watches are simple, understated, classy, and they never go out of style

Watch Case & Weight

Watches are available in different shapes, sizes and styles. Choosing the shape of a watch relies entirely on your personal taste, whether you like round, square, rectangular or Tonneau-shaped dials. Nevertheless, the size and weight are factors to be considered on priority.

Most oversized stainless steel or ceramic watch is too heavy to handle, and this is why you may want to consider a more lightweight style in titanium or opt for a more small sized model.

Case Material

One of the significant things to keep in mind is to choose the material of the watch as in most timepieces feature metal cases crafted in stainless steel. Majority of them feature black or gold plated finishes on stainless steel too. A fe high-end watchmakers, such as Patek, Bvlgari, Rolex, Omega, and Chopard feature premium cases crafted in 18K gold or platinum.

Watch Dial

Now this is completely based on your preference, the background colour, whether you prefer Numeral, Arabic or baton hour markers, as well as the significance of dazzling hands and markers. Other factors to consider include futuristic digital pieces or classic analogue designs, day, date and month indicators; moon-phase indicators along with time elapsed chronograph countdown functions, or minimalist styles along the lines of Movado timepieces, which features two hands and a signature cabochon dot indicator at the 12 o’clock hour.

Watch Band

Choosing a band of a watch is a matter of taste, some prefer strap styles and some other are crazy for bracelets. Stainless steel bracelet watches are one of the most popular. They also come in black ion-plated, two-tone, gold and rose gold finishes.

Several high-end luxury brands including TAG Heuer, Breitling, Cartier, and Omega offer bracelets crafted solely in 18K gold with many more pieces in stainless steel with 18K gold hues.

Leather and exotic skin strap watches offer a timeless look and are classy on the wrist too. Leather strap watches are water-resistant. Rubber and silicone straps are not only resistant to water but are also in vogue.

Watch Movement

Like everything else this is based on your personal preference towards automatic, mechanical or quartz style. The automatic and mechanical watches needs winding. Mechanical watches must be wound by hand almost on a daily basis. Automatic watches wind themselves with the motion of the wrist and may require a watch winder when not in use for a long time. Quartz watches are powered by batteries, which must be replaced every 2 or 3 years. Automatic and mechanical styles, both, are deemed as the most prestigious timepieces to own, on the contrary quartz watches are well within your means.

A good watch lasts for a very long time. It will not just enhance your personality, but also help you keep up with the ever-changing times!
