How to Choose a Watch

The choice of what watch to buy is sincerely a personal decision. Even if you have a noteworthy collection of watches, you probably took a lot of time to carefully pick a watch that satisfied your tastes and preferences. In this guide, we help you learn how to make the right decision when purchasing a watch that will suit you.

As much as we are writing this guide, I firmly believe that it is not our role to tell you the exact type of watch you should buy. We aren’t going to point you to the coolest or trendiest timepiece in the market; neither are we going to tell you how to spot a beautiful watch. Such decisions are made by you. However, what we intend to do is to educate and empower you to make the right choice when you make your next purchase. Read on to know exactly what we are going to tell you:

  • First, Ask Yourself Why You Really Want a Watch

It may sound pointless, but you need to ask yourself why you really want a watch. Perhaps, you want to tell time, or you want to impress ladies and friends, or maybe you just love history and you want something that can indicate a particular era? Watch enthusiasts have no shortage of interesting stories why they buy watches. Maybe, you just want to recompense yourself with the most expensive timepiece? There are various kinds of reasons why one would want to own a watch.

With that said, there are many brands of watches in the market, knowing why you need one, is perhaps the best place to start your search. This is because it will help you narrow your choices and identify the best watch that will suit you. Here are five golden tips to remember when you go shopping.

Shopping Tips

  1. Learn More About Classic Watch Styles

To make a practical and sensible purchase, you need to go out there and educate yourself about watches. There is a whole ocean of knowledge around horology (the science of making watches). Since time immemorial, timepiece makers have sharpened their skill to create sophisticated timepieces designed to outlive a couple of centuries. There is a lot of info on our blog about watches. So given that you are right here, this is the type of place that most people go to in order to find the watches they’re interested in. You can go through our reviews, or check out our buying guides to learn more.

  1. Understand the Economics of Pricing

What you should look for in any watch is value for money. You definitely want to get good bang for your buck, but if you aren’t familiar with what to expect, then you need to look at our buying guides to get a feel of what you require. Having said that, nice watches are quite expensive. If you want a decent mechanical Swiss, be ready to part with at least $1000. From there, there is literally no limit. You will notice that as you move to the higher end of the pricing spectrum, the features get finer and more sophisticated. But again, the decision of how much to spend entirely depends on you.

  1. Watches and Buyer Protection

I would like you to be extremely careful when purchasing watches online. First, you need to check the reputation of both the company and the seller. A manufacturer who is keen about quality will ensure they exchange damaged or defective watches if you find a fault after you buy the watch. You also need to look for warranties to cover repairs. As a golden rule, if you’re going to spend a considerable amount of money on a watch, make sure to get one that reflects quality.

  1. Why Size Matters

Just as there is no characteristic wrist size, so there’s no typical watch size. While some timepieces look really large, most have a case diameter of around 34 to 44 mm. If you have a petite wrist, a 34 to 40 mm will work best while a hefty gentleman with rugged wrist will opt for up to 46mm. In the same way, a watch’s thickness also affects how a watch looks on your arm. A 10mm watch will definitely sit better in a cuff than a 15 or 20 mm watch.

  1. A Quick Word on Complications

You might have already noticed that some watches sport a plethora of dials and hands — these are what we call complications. They go from the chronograph (the ones with stopwatch functionality) to GMT (the ones with a fourth hand that can be set to different time zones). Well, do you really need a complication at a time when your handset can do pretty much everything? Not exactly. But then again, that’s not the point, is it?

  1. Where to Buy

You’ve probably noticed that this article isn’t telling you much on particular watches. We really need you to find them on your own. Having said that, you really need to check Amazon.com — the world’s most popular site and one of the best places to buy a watch. There is a lot of inventory there, and companies sell both used and new watches. Although it most certainly doesn’t have everything, and sometimes not the price you’d expect, it would be ignorant of ant watch enthusiast not to take an interest in the Amazon marketplace.

Final Word

After going through all the above, you should now have a more intimate idea of what watch to buy. Next time you invest your money into a watch, remember to do so wisely. Deciding to buy a pricey watch is a simple decision for some but for others it is a decision that takes years in the making. You’ll soon understand why you spent your entire savings for a piece of glass, leather, and metal on your wrist.
