Buying a wrist watch can be quite a challenging experience. Many different models, styles and brands are available on the market, and it is important to know how to choose the best watch among the huge variety. It can become quite confusing.
The first step is to decide on the type of watch you are looking for. There are many different types of mens wrist watches, for example dress watches, diving watches and chronograph watches.
Wrist watches also come with three types of inner working or movement namely digital, mechanical and quartz. Quartz watches are known to be highly accurate and they work through a tiny crystal that vibrates. Mechanical movement watches are timeless and classic. They are very expensive but worth the money spent. Digital movement watches are highly affordable and are predominantly casual watches. The watch crystal or ‘glass’ cover that protects the face in mens wrist watches can be made of three types of material: synthetic sapphire, mineral crystal (ordinary glass) and plexiglass.
Synthetic Sapphire is one of the most expensive crystals, but it is also the one that is most scratch proof. However this glass is vulnerable and prone to shattering easily. It is therefore used mainly in dress watches. Mineral Crystal is also scratch proof but prone to shattering. This type of crystal is used in mid-range watches. Plexiglass is the most affordable crystal. This glass is shatter proof but scratches easily. Watches with Plexiglass are popularly used as work watches.
The strap of the watch is another important aspect to look into. Straps can be made of cloth, metal, leather and even plastic. You can choose the kind of strap you want according to your specific preference. It is important to ensure that the strap is well made and secures firmly. Most men prefer either metal or leather, but there are some great watches out there (i.e. Mens Swatch Watches) that look stunning with their plastic straps.
It is in your interest to ensure that the watch you purchase is water resistant and features a glow-in-the-dark face. However, these are personal choices. Look for the above features when you choose between mens wrist watches to pick up the one that suits you and your budget best.
