Watch Buying Guide

 

Looking for the perfect watch for work or the gym? Fancy adding a new timepiece to your ever growing collection? Then take a look below at our handy watch buying guide. We show you exactly which watches are best for work, sports and formal occasions.

 

Work

If you’re looking for a new watch to wear everyday, perhaps to work, then you should look out for something comfortable but also sophisticated that can be worn on a daily basis. A leather strap may be best as this style is subtle enough for everyday wear, comfortable and adds an elegant touch to your look.

Sports

When searching for a sports watch, remember that comfort is key and you should be looking out for flexible straps. Rubber may be the best option for comfort and movability. You could also choose a watch with added features that may assist you with your physical activities such as a stopwatch or a tachymeter.

Movements

Automatic – An automatic watch is self winding and does not need a battery. If worn daily, they keep themselves wound.

Quartz – Quartz watches are battery powered and use a crystal for accuracy. Quartz watches are highly accurate and offer precision time telling.

Mechanical – Mechanical watches use a spring for winding. The spring releases its stored energy to power the watch. Mechanical watches are not usually as accurate as quartz.

Eco – Eco drive watches are powered by sunlight and do not need their batteries replacing.
