People read into everything you do, right from the kind of clothes you wear, to how you sit. In a world which is so judgmental, even your timekeeping device is not spared! The kind of watch sported by you can actually speak a lot about the kind of person you are! You don’t want to go around giving people a wrong impression about you. Even if all you need a watch for is to tell you what time of the day it is, it would not hurt to pick a timepiece which is more relevant to your personality.
There are a few factors which help you decide which watch is best suited for you.
The money matters
Of course you must be able to afford the watch! Before you even set out to buy a watch, know what price range should the watch fall in. How much do you want to spend on your watch? If you are a watch fanatic you have probably saved for months just to invest in your dream watch. Either way, buying a watch you cannot afford is going to steal half the charm of the time accessory. Every time you glance at your wrist, besides getting to know the time, you are going to be constantly reminded of the financial constraint you are facing because of this one extravagant purchase.
The Mice and the Pied Piper
Don’t fall into the category of mice that blindly followed the pied piper. Just because magazines and internet articles are raving about a particular watch, does not mean it is right for you. The watch in question may be absolutely ravishing and delivers everything it claims, but maybe you don’t need a watch of that kind. Same is the story with a particular brand of watch. Just because everybody owns a Tag Heuer does not mean you have to. It is quite possible that amidst the collection of watches, Tag Heuer does not have something which suits your personality. Match the watch variety and style to your day to day attire and probably you can come up with something that matches your taste to the tee.
Know what looks good on you
Choose a watch which is comfortably heavy. The dial should settle comfortably on your wrist and not hang off the edges. Go for a leather strap or a metallic strap depending on your preference, your lifestyle and the environment you wish to wear your watch in. Ill-fitting watches can be an immediate put off.
If you are looking for a particular function in a watch, make sure you choose a watch which combines comfort, design and style along with the function you are looking for. Your watch has to be water resistant and should be able to function without any immediate hitches. You need to take a call on whether you want a watch with an inbuilt GPS system, or something which can track ocean tides, or has dual clocks. Various watches offers a multitude of functions; do your research, and narrow down your choice.
After you have invested in the right watch, treat it with care and respect. Never put a watch face down on a table and it would not hurt to clean your watch off the daily sweat and grime it accumulates from sitting on your wrists daily.
