Three Things To Consider Before Buying A WristWatch
Being in the watch business, I am often asked for suggestions on watches. Should I invest in automatic or mechanical watches? How much should I spend on one? Are German watches worth buying? I think any person planning to buy a watch must follow these basic principles:
- Understand What Type Of Watch You Need:
Watches come in a wide range of styles, shapes, names, and brands, but they can be classified generally into a few major categories. For example, the typical classic watch or the dress watch looks traditional and is well suited for formal occasions. If you’re the adventurous type and looking for a watch that can give you a weather update, time laps, monitor heart rate, or double up as a GPS tracker, a sports watch is what you need. And if you are looking for a timepiece that can be passed on as an heirloom, mechanical watches would be right up your alley.
If you need a personal digital-butler, a smartwatch is what you need! It can help you plan your week, alert you about an upcoming client meeting, call up people, play your favorite TV show, remind you to drink water when you’re busy at work, or even monitor your blood pressure! And of course, tell time.
- Decide On A Budget:
Watch prices can vary from a few dollars to a couple of million dollars! How much can you afford to spend on a watch? Handmade watches are understandably expensive because of the man-hours and the effort that goes into making them. The quality of the material also impacts the price. For example, genuine leather straps or stainless steel straps are expensive when compared to generic watches made using low-grade steel or fake leather.
If you are looking for a watch that’s affordable yet precise with an elegant finish, I’d suggest the Theorema or the Pionier.
- Choose A Brand With Rich A Heritage
When buying a wristwatch, it is important to go with a reputable brand with a rich heritage. Handmade German watches can convey class subtly and distinctly.
