Things You Should Consider While Buying A Watch
1. Price With Quality
Knowing the budget will help to find out the right watch. A lot of mechanisms and technologies are involved in modern watches so they are at different prices from low to high.
If you know your budget, there will be less confusion about selecting a watch. Whatever your budget criteria are, I am suggesting you grab a good quality watch by spending a little more money if needed.
Plenty of brands are available in the market but choosing the best out of them is crucial.
So please research properly about the company’s history and see, from how many years they are making watches & what kind of style they adopt. By this, you can also check the style you want on your watch.
Reviews about the model and the company will also help.
3. Watch Movements
There are two types of movements:
B. Mechanical(Manual and automatic)
These watches are simple in design, battery-powered, and run when the battery power is sent through the quartz inside your watch.
Its battery can last from one and a half years to three years depending on the features in your watch. Because features like chronograph or date window consume battery power more quickly.
The advantage of this watch is that winding is not required for the movement of the watch and for this reason maintenance and servicing are easy.
Quartz watches are cheaper & accurate than mechanical and automatic watches. They are also durable, easy to use & readable.
B. Mechanical Watches(Manual and Automatic)
These watches are of two types: Manual winding and automatic.
Manual/Basic Mechanical Watches(Hand- Wound)
There are no electronics and electric components in the basic mechanical watches. They are totally hand-wound.
These watches work when you wind the mainspring by turning the crown of the watch which gives 30-50 hours of power depending on the watch.
You have to wind these watches every day or in-between the few days because the requirement of winding is depending on the power reserve and spring.
Advantages of manual watches
Longevity & clear view.
Automatic/Mechanical Automatic Watches(Self-winding)
Mechanical automatic watches or automatic watches have both the capabilities I,e hand-wound and automatic rotating. Automatic rotating is done by a rotating rotor that swings back and forth as you move your arm.
The benefit of automatic watches is that they continue to tick on the regular motion of the wearer’s wrist without winding each day. You don’t have to set the time again & again to keep your watch running while you are wearing it on your wrist.
It does not mean you will never have to wind your watch but there is less hurdle to wind the watch than a mechanical watch. You have to wind the watch according to the capacity of the power reserve, your wrist movements, and the period when you wear or not to wear your watch.
These watches are not so accurate as mechanical watches you have to wind each day. Mechanical watches are slim in shape while automatic watches are usually thicker because of the rotor.
If you don’t want to wind your watch so often, you must keep these things in mind:
- You should look for an automatic watch with a large power reserve because they will give you a chance to wear another watch in between.
- Keep your wrist moving.
- Wear your watch continuously.
- Buy a watch winder if you put on your watch occasionally.
Note: Generally an automatic watch has enough power reserve for the nighttime at least. If you wear your watch all day long and remove it at night and again put it on the next morning, your watch will always run without putting any effort.
Automatic watches which can’t be hand-wound
Some automatic watches can’t be hand-wound like Seiko SKX013. They only use a rotor for automatic motion.
The myth about automatic watches
There is a myth that an automatic watch gets damaged when it stops.
But don’t worry automatic watches are just fine if you are not wearing them for a long period of time or even leave it unwound. You just only need to wind your watch again when you are ready to wear it and watches like Seiko SKX013 you can’t hand-wind, just gently shake it for 2-3 minutes to start it again.
Advantages of automatic watches
- An automatic watch can be worn and wound constantly day and night. It will neither break nor overwound.
- In order to keep going, there is no need for batteries in these watches. This eliminates the risk of battery fluid leakage.
4. Purpose of buying
Without knowing the exact purpose of buying a watch, you will not select a perfect watch for you according to your needs.
Ask yourself why are you buying a watch?
- Tells time?
- Shows status?
- For swimming?
- For running?
- A fashion accessory?
- Enhance your personality?
- Is it for your work or office?
- Need for your sports or play?
5. Watch Case
Go for a strong watch case. I am giving you an example of stainless steel.
Stainless steel is a hardy metal and is the best material for making watch cases.
It doesn’t rust and avoid skin irritation.
6. Watch Crystal
Watch crystal is the watch glass that covers the dial.
Different crystals like mineral, sapphire are available. Out of other crystals, sapphire is superior due to its characteristics and at the same time, it is costly than other crystals. So definitely if you want to enjoy the quality of sapphire, you have to raise your budget.
If I explain about minerals, this really works well on break-resistant. These mineral crystals are stronger than plastic and affordable than sapphire.
7. Watch Straps
Share this Image On Your Site
A watch strap is a band that supports your watch while you are wearing it on your wrist. Different watch straps are available in the market like leather, silicone, nylon, fabric, stainless steel, etc. You can choose any one of them according to your needs.
A. Leather Watch Straps
Pick the leather straps if the water-resistance doesn’t matter for you. It can be torn & damaged over time. Qualities of this band are: Durable, elastic, environment-friendly& carefree.

Silicone gives you a warm feeling so enjoy its warmness in winters. This is an eco-friendly, elastic material, and high & low resistance.
D. Stainless steel Watch Straps
These straps are very much in trends & very much popular. It is not good for daily purposes because these straps are heavy to wear. Less expensive than platinum, gold & silver.
E. Rubber Watch Straps
The runner bands sweat easily & add a little bit of moisture. They are scratch resistance & affordable. These bands are generally, seen in casual or sports watches.
F. Fabric Watch Straps
They come in different textiles, colors, designs, and prints.
G. Ceramic Watch Straps

L. Wooden Watch Straps

M. Titanium Watch Straps
Titanium is more strong and expensive than stainless steel. It is lightweight and easy to wear. Qualities are: break resistance, low density & searchable.
8. Watch Clasp
The watch clasp helps to fasten the watch strap on the wrist.
Different clasps like deployment clasp, hidden deployment clasp, pushbutton deployment clasp, and tang buckle are common.
30-36mm was the standard width for men’s watch but in the last few years, the standard size has grown between 39mm to 42mm.
Whatever watch you choose for yourself, its durability should be for many years.
It is an obvious point but we fail to remember common points sometimes;)
11. Water Resistance
If you buy the watch for swimming and all, you must look for this particular feature.
Water-resistance means how much water your watch can handle and the rating of the watch like ATM and Bar will tell you about this capacity.
- 30 meters(3 Atm/3 Bar): Treat it as a no water resistance watch.
- 50 meters(5 Atm/5 Bar): Good for accidental water splashes but avoid submerging your watch in water.
- 100 meters(10 Atm/10 Bar): This is perfect for swimming. Avoid scuba diving and high impact water sports.
- 200 meters(20 Atm/20 Bar): It is ready for diving and swimming. Extreme deep-sea diving is an exception.
The functions you should consider in your watch totally depends upon your lifestyle.
While some of the functions are very basic so they must be available in every watch like second hands, GPS, date, day, dual time, and alarm.
Check other functions according to lifestyle:
Chronograph: A fancy word for a stopwatch or is used as a stopwatch with its fancy display. This is best for running, training, and for the gym.
Tachymeter: Function of sports watches. Useful for sailing or cycling and running.
Perpetual Calendar: Shows the exact date and automatically adjusts the number of days in a month.
13. Try Before You Buy
Trying a watch is really important so you must check the watch fits on your wrist or not.
Your watch band and watch face should not be too small if you are a tall person.
Go for a small watch band and face if your wrist is small.
