Things to Know Before You Buy a Watch


One essential accessory for men is a quality watch. If you are purchasing your first expensive watch, there are a few things you should know before buying. The first thing you should decide is how much you’re willing to spend. You can still get a quality watch for under 300 dollars. But, if you want the highest quality watch, you will have to spend significantly more. No matter what you’re willing to spend, these tips can help you find the right watch for your budget.

Tips for Watch Buying

One of the first details you’ll want to consider is the material the watch is made with. Watch experts recommend steel grade of 316L or above, because this quality of steel does not rust. Additionally, you’ll want a watch that is made of solid metal rather than hollow. This ensures a watch with sturdier, solid links that will be unlikely to break.

Another important factor in watch quality is the movement of the hands. Thankfully you can find watches with high-quality movement even with a low budget. Watches with a “quartz movement” are commonly found in higher-priced watches, but are available in more affordable models.

Lastly, you’ll want to consider how the watch looks on your wrist and how it fits with your overall style. The proportion of the watch to your wrist is key. If you have a bigger wrist, you should consider a larger, sturdier watch face. Alternately, if you have a smaller wrist, consider purchasing a slimmer watch that doesn’t appear overly delicate.

All things considered, you should able to find a watch that can fit with almost any outfit. A minimalist watch won’t clash with your outfits and you won’t get tired of wearing it. A minimalist watch denotes a watch face that is easy to read, and not overly complicated with various timers and secondary hands.
