tips for buying watchesThe modern timepiece is definitely preferred by many men to complement their dressing. There are those who use it only to tell time while on the other hand, there are those men who use it as a gadget to complement their outfit. Whatever your case, what is clear is that not just any watch can meet every man taste and preference. It all depends on what we seek, in our style and of course what our budget can afford.

And in the market we can find many types of watches, from classic to casual and sports watches through to the geeks. The range is wide and finding the right watch can be a bit confusing and tedious as a result we have decided to share these basic tips to help you narrow down your options for your next timepiece either for personal usage or as a gift item for loved ones.

Simple and Classic

If your style is classic, or rather pretend to escape the eccentricities and looking for a watch that can help highlight your elegance then it’s best to opt for those wrist watches that are designed with a rectangular shape, rather than the rounded models. One cool thing about these kind of timepiece is they are very much affordable as most of them usually fall into the category of mens watches under 500 (which is a good thing for those with lean budget).

The type and color of the watch strap is another important factor you should not think of ignoring. If possible you should try as much as possible to match the color of your watch straps (mainly for watches with leather straps) to that of your belt color as well. Doing this will give you a perfect and immaculate look that will not go un-noticed. For those that prefer watches with chain bracelets, you have little or nothing to worry as they tend to complement and blend well with virtually any attire and outfit.

More Details

Another factor worth considering is the details on the wrist watch crystal. The good thing about sports watches is that they are often timeless, and hardly go out of style. They are also stronger, lighter and usually come with more options such as thermometer, barometer, etc. all these features combine to make them the most sort after timepiece with great detailing.

Because they are designed with solid and authentic leather and chain bracelet, they tend to withstand everyday abuses while still being able to tell time more accurately and precisely.

The most geek

No doubt the Casio G Shock, are a clear example that fashions come back and certainly the digital clocks again have their share of ownership.

As always such watches must be consistent with your casual style, combining colors and style, otherwise it will seem that you have are still anchored in the 80s.

Note the size

watch dial sizes

In men, wrist varies between 15 and 18 cm in diameter as a rule. This wrist measurement standard adapts to all kinds of watches, large, small, etc.

If instead you have a small wrist (below 15 cm) you should avoid clocks with dial diameter greater than 40 mm because the effect will not be very attractive.

If your wrist is more than 20cm in diameter, then its best to  look for wrist watches that are at least 42 mm in diameter, if not the timepiece may be somewhat ridiculous on your wrist.

And finally remember that the bracelet is also a fact that we must always keep in mind when buying a timepiece. If it’s a leather watch that you more comfortable with, then you can go for the ones with crocodile leather strap to be more comfortable and also survive rigorous everyday usage.
