My husband is a watch fanatic! He has so many watches, and still considers purchasing more. (Sidenote: I can’t say anything because I am the same way with shoes lol). So I finally sat him down and asked him, “how to do choose the perfect watch?” I caught him by surprise, but quickly, he was eager to explain.
Having watches based on your lifestyle:
He suggest having a watch for work and play. When looking for a watch for work, consider looking for one that is classic and more tasting.
Stainless steel vs. leather:
He feels that stainless steel is more practical than leather and it is more durable. It is dressy enough work and casual enough for other events. It’s also waterproof which is a good thing.
The face compared to the person’s wrist is very important. This needs to be considered when purchasing a watch. He states , “Since I am a big guy, I need to be careful because I don’t want my watch to look like a woman’s watch!” Since watch makers are becoming more of a trend, so he doesn’t have problem with that. I personally like the bigger faces.
Color of the face and strap is important. There are many colors, but when building a wardrobe, consider looking for watches that will blend and will look appropriate in business and casuals settings.
Until next time…
