A watch is the single most important accessory a man can own–it is an essential style element. Considering which watch you want to buy is a deeply personal decision. Even if you own a large collection of timepieces, you’ve probably carefully considered the purchase of each, as it is a new introduction in your life on your body, and is a very personal accoutrement, show your personality and style.
Why is it that you want a watch? Do you want to know what time it is? Perhaps you want to impress your friends or ladies? Perhaps you love history and want a timepiece that is indicative of an era or person. People who consider themselves watch collectors have no shortage of motivations and interests in the watches they buy. Perhaps you simply feel like you’ve reached a point in your life that merits rewarding yourself?
After choosing a preferred movement, you need to think about what you need your watch to do. Watches spanning all price points have feature ranging from water resistance, to tracking oceanic tides, and even integrated GPS, so it’s important to consider what features you’ll actually use, because almost any feature adds to the cost.
Another thing that gets me when it comes to watches is the size of the watch face relative to the wrist that’s wearing it. On bigger men a standard watch face can end up looking like a ladies watch. Watch makers are continually coming out with watches that have larger than standard faces. In fact, it has become quite a trend. I personally love bigger watch faces whether you’re a big guy or not, it’s a great look.
It’s a great feature if you shower or swim with your watch on, but let’s be honest, who really does that? I like it because if you get caught in the rain or get your watch accidentally wet, you don’t have to worry. And by the way, water resistant can mean several things so be sure you ask to what degree the watch really is resistant. Some watches will resist moisture from accidental splashing, rain, sweat, etc. and others will resist moisture up to certain depths such as 50 or 100 meters.
Listen carefully to the sound machine to go when the size of the table, the sound is not clear when the table machine to go clear sound are not balanced, there is no noise and so on. This is a relatively common and straightforward way, but not as the sole criterion to buy brand watches, in conjunction with more than a few ways to make the purchase.
Consider the man’s wrist size when selecting a watch. A man with a smaller wrist doesn’t look good wearing a watch with a large face or he may find a large band to be too bulky. Know his wrist size before making a choice.
Stainless-steel will last longer then leather. Plus, it can easily be worn with a business suit but can be paired just as easily well as with casual dress.
