Are you looking to buy a new watch? If so, then your options are endless. There are a plethora of fantastic watch brands out there to choose from. So, how do you approach decided what is the best luxury watch to suit you?
Rather than starting out looking for the perfect watch, a better option is to learn how to choose a watch that suits you. Once you have decided on the type of watch that best suits your style and personality, you can then narrow down your search, beginning to look into specific styles, brands and straps.
So, when it comes to understanding what you want from a watch, here are the key factors to consider:
Styles is undoubtedly one of the biggest considerations when picking the right watch for you. And, choosing the right watch style starts by thinking about when, and what activities you’re going to be wearing the watch for.
For example, if you plan on wearing your new watch exclusively for special occasions and events, then you may look for a sleek, elegant design. However, if your new watch is for everyday wear or to reference while playing sport, something more practical and robust would be a better option.
A luxury watch can say a lot about the wearer. So, before deciding on your watch, think about what you want people to think when they see your new timepiece. There are an array of great statement watches out there, including many within this breathtaking Patek Philippe watch collection from Berry’s Jewellers. The perfect luxury watch can not only help you stand out from a crowd while you’re attending a function or event but also indicates to others that you really mean business.
There are three main types of watch movements: Mechanical, Quartz, and Automatic. Mechanical watch hands move with a smooth/sweeping motion, and the watch requires being manually wound for the watch to work.
The second hand of a Quartz watch moves with single ticks, and the watch is typically battery powered. And finally, there’s an Automatic watch. The kinetic energy of your wrist/arm drives the mechanisms inside the wristwatch.
As with any purchase, price is undoubtedly a factor in your decision-making process. Before beginning the process of buying a luxury watch either in-store or online, it’s essential to have an idea of how much you want to spend. If you’re looking to splash the cash on your new timepiece, then Blancpain watches from Owen & Robinson are a great place to start. You’ll also be able to find some more price-friendly options within their sublime watch collections.
One final thing to take into account when choosing your perfect watch is the apparel that currently resides in your wardrobe. It’s essential when deciding on and searching for the perfect watch to consider whether or not the style, colour and prestige of your new purchase ‘go with’ what you currently have. It’s no good going out and selecting your brand new timekeeping device, and then having to buy a whole new wardrobe full of clothes to match.
