5 Steps to Choose the Best Watches

Select a clock is not easy, because beyond price or brand, there are other factors you should consider to maximize this accessory.


The watch is one of the accessories most important, if not the most, for the woman or the business man, since beyond good taste and style, a watch can transmit features of personality.


Do you like the adventure or you throw more to urban life? Are you discreet or you like to show off what you have? Like the innovation or yours is the classic ? A watch is much more than a device that tells us the time: it is a mirror of our style in general.

We share five steps you can follow to choose the perfect watch for you.

Well, before anything first thing you have to define a price range. When you fall for a watch it is difficult to say it is not and easier not overspend if you have a budget in mind.

Step 1. Define the style by use

What costumes are going to use with the clock? If it is for use with costumes (men) or business attire (women), a clock too bulky or sporty look could clash (eye: there are no rules, and there are combinations that work).

There are three main styles of clock: dress or classic, sporty and designer.

Dress watches are usually of a golden material, a cover simple and slim body as well as hands and thick numbers.

Designer watches usually have a very peculiar style, because they are born from the imagination of someone famous, as the architect and designer Phillipe Starck.

Sports watches are usually large, resistant to water (ideal if you like diving) thick and numbers. They usually have several indicators such as stopwatch . There are both hands and digital.

Step 2. Choose the materials


Options for phasing make a list of the combinations of materials that you like.

The bodies usually come in plastic, resins , stainless steel, metals with gold plate ; Solid metals such as titanium , alternative materials such as ceramics (or wood) or gold with precious stones.

What you choose depends on your personality: If you like classic but with a twist, the ceramic can be your best option; if you prefer the classic pure, golden brown but not obtrusive could be of more pleased.

Then you have to choose the belt , but not only based on style, but also comfort .

They are of plastics , rubber , specialty metals such as titanium, metal, exotic skins like crocodile or natural skin .

Choose the combinations that best adhere to your personality and looking models based on them.

Step 3. Size Matters

Watch size should be appropriate for your complexion . If you are a tall person you are good models with large album art; if you are of short stature too big watch will make you look like a child with his father’s watch.

Similarly, if you’re a circular thin complexion could be the perfect choice clock.

If you are sturdily built a square or rectangular cover provides right angles.

Step 4. Durability and maintenance


If you want to buy a watch and passing it on to future generations, or simply want to last several years, it is important to know the basics of durability.

Mechanical watches, both manual and automatic, need to be cleaned every three years, but his life is almost infinite.

Quartz watches based operating batteries must be serviced every you change the battery (two to five years).

However parts can not always be repaired: unlike mechanical watches, his life is limited.

Finally, watch batteries lithium LID type have a life of approximately 10 years.

Step 5. Put it before buying


Golden rule: Never buy a watch before make sure that sees you as well.

Sometimes we see a model in Internet and fascinates us, but I see it as something that does not fit. This is quite common.

If you’re going to make a good investment in a watch, go to the store with the type of clothing with which you use it .

If it is for weekends or play golf, wearing a polo shirt.

If it is for working hours, go to the store with a suit or formal dress.

You may find better prices if you shop online, but first try it in a store.
