HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT WATCH FOR YOU

You have seen it there's a plethora of watch styles and brands out there and so many to think about it's hard to choose sometimes. So in this article, I want to narrow the search down for you and talk about four steps guide you want to look into when choosing your next watch. These are steps that you probably will need to combine all four together to finally zero into that watch. I believe these four steps are going to make your search a lot easier.

 

Movement

This is probably the most important part of the watch because this is what powers the watch. You basically got three types of movement you have Quartz, you have mechanical and you have Automatic. Most of the times not always but most of the time a mechanical and automatic watch is more expensive. Not only is it more expensive initially it's more also more expensive to maintain. You have to keep up with maintenance to make sure the watch doesn't get ruined if it does get ruined having to fix it sometimes can be pricey depending on the model you have that's why these two type of movements I usually recommend if you have a comfortable wage. Then, on the other hand, you have quartz, in my opinion, is a better watch especially if you're a younger guy or a guy in a budget. Because this literally has little to no maintenance whatsoever so not only is it cheaper to maintain it's also cheaper initially. Most quartz watches are actually pretty affordable and they still look great.

 

Case Diameter

The next step you want to look into is case diameter or case size. This is actually very important most watches today range anywhere from like 36 millimeters up to like 46 on the really high end. Choosing the right watch for you really all depends on your size how big are you. If you have wimpy wrists then you want to probably say under 40 millimeters. This area it's all about proportions and the type of body that you have.

 

Color Combination

Next is a color combination and it really matters what you're looking at is the case and face combination. There are several combinations and it'll be almost impossible for me to go over them but let's just talk about the three main ones. You have all black so black face black casing then you have gold and with a white face and then you have silver with a white face. Well just to keep things simple so you have silver gold or all black those are usually the three main options that you have. When you're choosing color combinations this really boils down to personal preference. I think it looks really cool in the benefit of all black is that you don't have to worry about matching your metals. Even if you're wearing a belt with a gold buckle or a belt with the silver buckle in both instances you can wear a black model. That's why I usually like this model it's very versatile on the other hand you have something more traditional like the gold or the silver model. I love these two because there are traditional the only little nuance with these is that you need a match or metal. If you're trying to choose what type of color it is that you're trying to buy just look at your closet. What type of metal do you use often and pick that color?

 

Band Material

Then the final thing you want to look into is band material. For you to choose the right band material for you boils down to your lifestyle. Let's give you some examples if you're the nine-to-five type of guy then you're probably going to want something either like a leather which is very classic or something like a metal link kit that can be very elegant or something like that. On the other hand, if you're more into the streetwear and you like outside-the-box type of style and more casual wear then try something like a suede band that's something a little bit different not something a lot of people use. like you're seeing on this watch or you could try something like a metal mesh link watch it's something that's actually coming into style a lot of watches do have today and it's a little bit different. If you keep into account these four areas within a watch it will help you narrow down the field a little bit better. That way you can be like okay I want an all-black model that is quartz I want it with suede and I want it anywhere between 38 to 40 millimeters. Now that you have the parameters said it'll help you narrow your vision a little bit and weed out the watches you know you don't want and pick out the watch it's going to make you and fit your lifestyle best.
