How to pick your new timepiece!

Apart from telling the time, a watch also indicates the personality & stature of a man.  Men's watches have also been fashion items, as many guys show off their personality and preferences through their favorite timepiece.

Men's watches serve a variety of purposes, of course telling the time, to providing the current date and a few watches can also serve as alarm.  Digital watches, on the other hand, sound off the time.  This is often referred to as true clocks. There’s also the complicated timepiece, which is a more sophisticated brand of watch.  It can serve as a stopwatch and also provide information such as exhibition of the lunar phase.  

Let's dive into the distinct types of men's watches.  Chronograph watches are one of the earliest and time-honored timepieces.  They essentially work like a stopwatch and have been keeping time through various ways for the past 100 years. There is a dial for seconds, minutes, hours, and even for measurement of distance and speed.  

Automatic watches are a very popular choice among guys since they can be worn daily.  They are referred to as self winding watches simply because of the manner they work.  The wrist’s movement  puts the rotor in a circular rotation.  Because they do not rely on batteries, automatic watches are one of the best selling types of men's watches.

There are many other types of men's watches in the market.  All of them offer distinct features and designs that appeal to a large majority of men.  However, how do you chose the perfect watch for you?  There are some good ways to determine the type of watch that a man will appreciate.  


Your personality  and interests are factors that you should consider before buying a new watch. If you work in a corporate setting a dress watch is a good choice.  Dress watches are known to be stylish and elegant, which is perfect for the corporate setting.  Dress watches are usually made out of stainless steel. There are dress watches that are accentuated with gold, and silver, and other premium materials. 

If you’re more of the adventurous type, then you may enjoy a sports watch. Sports watches will keep tab of the time as well as your heart rate as it could be the perfect accessory in the gym! Of course if you diving, a diver's watch would be a match made in heaven!


Now the fine details of picking your new watch. You should consider taking a wristwatch with stainless steel strap because it is durable and classy.  Leather straps are good however they cannot be worn in all occasions.  The face of the watch should also look good.  Normally, guys love big watches. This actually makes sense since most guys have big wrists anyway.

For starters you can always go online and check out the many new designs and brands of men’s watches. After making a short list, setup a fitting appointment at your nearest and most truest dealer to learn more about the heritage of the watch, get the perfect fit and of course the best value!
