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

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.

Now that you know the 4 primary considerations when selecting a watch, go out there, do some research, and find the right watch for you!

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
