Think simple and timeless, something you can keep a long time, or pass down. Select a timepiece that is durable and goes with a lot of looks. Keep things as easy as possible.
Here is the watch rule: watches should not look petite on the wrist, and the lugs should not extend past the edge of the wrist. Avoid going too oversize unless you are a really big guy.
Don’t Get Blinded By Bling
Some watches are more about the name than the substance. Do not too get caught up in high ticket items that are that way because of metals and jewels they simply added to base watches.
A watch may not be a financial investment, but it is an emotional one. It reflects something about the person who chooses it. Because of that it's not always smart to let a relative or friend select the watch that you'll be wearing for the next five to ten years. This is an opportunity to express something about you.
What Watch Is Right?
It is imperative to know if a watch brand name is of the utmost importance to you. There are some people who are drawn to more boutique brand watches whose name or style is uncommon. You decide the purpose of the watch then shop accordingly.
Deciding What To Spend
You should not spend more than you can afford on a watch. If price isn’t an option, nice, but don’t look at a watch as something you can later make a big investment off of. Manage your expectations regardless of how much you plan to spend.
Watches are practical purchases. Assuming you care for them, they can also last decades and become important markers of your personal history. Businessmen need them, urban men love them; they fit everyone. So find your fit.
