Men’s Watch Guide: 4 Foolproof Steps In Selecting a Watch

Following good fabrics, a man may feel the urge to have a proper watch to match his look, whether that professional or stylistic.

When choosing a watch, you must consider the price, use, types and taste. Of course, there are many other things to consider before making your choice, but those are the main 4 considerations to be aware of. Here are the following:

1. Price

One major problem with men’s watch selection is that the people think price is means quality. Most people believe the higher the price, the better the quality, so they go for the highly-priced watches only to be disappointed along the way. I’m not disputing the idea that price could mean quality, but, this is not true in all cases.

Every business person has the power to talk anyone into what is quality and what is not, but only the people who are knowledgable about the product they desire can really tell if it’s quality or not. While newbies may only focus on the outward appearance of the watch and judge its price based on aesthetics, knowledgeable watch buyers may rather focus on the internal building.

Make sure you do your research first. That way you’ll have well thought out questions for the sales person and will be able to know what the fair price really is.

2. Types

One of the first steps in selecting your dream watch is knowing the type of watch you want and how it works.

For modern watches, there are two categories of movement. One of the categories is the quartz watch, which functions by an oscillatory movement and is powered by a cell/battery. Automatic watches, on the other hand functions, doesn’t need batteries. This watch is powered by a self-winding, tension system.

The quartz watches are easier to use, cheaper and are more accurate in time measurement than the automatic or mechanical watches. None the less, the mechanical watches may be better than the quartz watch in terms of craftmanship. This is one of the reasons why the mechanical or automatic watch is more expensive than the quartz watch.

3. Uses

It’s not enough to know how your watch moves or what is happening inside; you also need to know what the watch is used for. Every man understands that different occasions demand a special watch to match with style. This is why it’s definitely not enough to have only one timepiece and be satisfied.

For instance, there are watches solely made for hiking purposes while others are strictly made for use in the depths of the sea. There are numerous categories of watches based on their intended purposes and making a choice among these is sure to pose a challenge if not properly guided by a pro or with little research.

Again, this goes back to doing your research.

Also, make sure to think about your daily activities as well as what event(s) you plan to wear your watch for. If you are an avid hiker you may want to get a watch fit for hiking. Or perhaps you want a watch that’s great for hikes and work.

4. Taste

What counts most when it comes to watches is your taste. This is the reason why a man purchases an item for $50,000 instead of another that’s worth $20,000, even though both perform the same function.

The same reason goes for why a buyer would choose an automatic watch that is less in accuracy and priced higher compared to a quartz watch, which is more accurate and cheaper.

Go for the taste that suits your style.
