There are so many watches for women out there and the layperson might find it hard to choose the right one for them. But, it wouldn’t be if you are just armed with the right knowledge of the matter.
Today, I am going to be giving you some ideal tips for choosing your next watch. Put these things into mind so that your watch purchase will be worth it.
Form Definitely Comes First
Men usually look at the craftsmanship of the watch than how it looks (although the latter can be a dealbreaker for some). Women are especially fond of how something looks since they will try to mix and match their accessories with the outfit that they’re wearing. Sure, it also depends on what you are using your watch for. Watches nowadays do
more things than simply just telling time. There are some that use smartwatches, for example, to help them track their steps, as well as give them a general idea of what their heart rate is.
Women are not especially keen on the functionalities, but instead, would rely on how something looks. Comfort factors in as well. So in this case, form definitely comes first before function when it comes to choosing the ideal watch.
Consider Watch Movements
Although I said in the previous tip that form always goes first then function, it is still important to note the watch movement as well. There are three different watch movements that you need to be aware of and that is the mechanical, automatic, and quartz.
Mechanical watches are those that rely on a spring mechanism to help tell the time. They often would have to be wound up just to function and you may have to do that a couple of times a day.
Automatic watches work the same way as that of mechanical watches but they have an auto-winding mechanism that automatically does the winding for you. The caveat is that you have to wear the watch to keep the mechanism going.
Both of the above-mentioned watch movements can easily be discerned by just looking at the second-hand. If it is a smooth sweeping motion, then you will know that that is a mechanical/automatic watch.
Quartz watches, on the other hand, are battery-operated and they are characterized by a staggered second-hand movement. Since they are using batteries to keep things powered on, they are more reliable and more accurate in telling the time.
Consider Your Outfit
Look at your wardrobe and look at the predominant colors. Then, look for a watch color that complements them. As I’ve said before, women are especially fond of mixing and matching what they wear on their body so it is important for you to note that you have to use appropriate colors to help you standout.
Have More Freedom by Considering Interchangeable Bands
If you cannot decide on the color of the watch straps, perhaps you can opt for a watch that gives you the freedom to change its bands on the fly.
