Everybody should own a high-quality, stylish and practical watch. Not only does this give you a faster and classier way to check the time than checking your phone, but it can also transform your appearance and reflect your personality; this can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Despite the clear benefits of wearing a watch every day, many people do not own one. One of the reasons for this is that people do not know how to go about finding the right watch for them, as it can be daunting with so much variation. These tips (appropriate for men and women) will help anybody to pick out the perfect watch for them to wear every single day.
Identify a Budget
The first step is identifying how much money you would like to spend. With so much variation, this will help to narrow down your results and ensure that you do not overspend. Whilst you may be tempted to spend less, it is important to remember that quality will last and also look sharper.
Analogue or Digital
Next, you will need to decide between analogue (classic style with hour and minute hands and numbers/roman numerals/marks depicting hours) and digital (numerical form on an LCD or LED face). You can also get analogue/digital watches which combine the two forms. Analogue is considered the more formal and stylish, whilst digital is more casual. Deciding this will depend on personal preference and your day to day life.
Selecting the material will be the next stage for filtering results. There are two factors to consider here; the wristband and the casing. The band can come in a huge range of materials, including various metals, leather, fake leather, rubber, plastic and exotic skins. The case (which holds the face) usually come in precious metals, other metals, plastic or resin. This will have a significant impact on the price, so you will have to consider your budget.
Style and Features
Finally, you can decide on the style and features. The main options are sports watches, dress watches and casual watches. Typically, dress or casual watches are best for day to day life and wearing at work. There are numerous features with many modern watches, so you may want to consider some of these. A few examples include calculators, calendars, email programs and even cameras.
Finding the Right Watch
Now that you have narrowed your results, you will want to find the watch. Jewellers, like F.Hinds, are typically the best places for dress or casual watches.
With these steps, you should be able to find the perfect watch for everyday wear that is suited to your taste and within your budget.
