What are the criteria to take into consideration when buying a wristwatch? The question is asked by all those who are not experts in the field and we, in the next few lines, will try to give them a concise and convincing answer.
Basically, in our opinion, there are three parameters to consider:
- Your needs
- Your budget
- The reliability of the seller
In the brief guide that follows we will try to provide our readers with some useful tips for buying a men’s watch at an appropriate price, but above all to satisfy their needs in a conscious manner. Because the watch – in the age of mobile phones – is less and less a useful object (the time, by now, is read on the mobile phone) and more and more a precious good, to show off and wear for pure pleasure.
Let’s see below what we need to know before buying a watch.
1. What do you want?
The first parameter to take into consideration is the objective of one’s purchase.
If you buy a watch for purely aesthetic reasons, a timepiece is worth the same (in the sense that no one can review your tastes), but you must also remember that the quality of the manufacturer and the cost of the watch are not secondary in determining how much time this watch will accompany you.
If you have special technical needs you need to focus on suitable products. If you do scuba diving, for example, it is essential to choose a 200 bar, but if you run the risk of getting the watch in contact with water or other liquids, you should read the table with the water-resistance of the watches because some watches are likely to go out forever in the first rain.
2. Your budget
The question of the budget is obviously decisive and must be related to one’s needs. If you want to buy a watch for investment, in fact, it is advisable to focus on the vending machines of known brands, but not after consulting industry experts and forums. The basic advice, however, is to move towards watches with Swiss movement, which are unlikely to cost less than 400 dollars for new watches. But first of all, it is important to know that – as in all investments – only real experts have adequate knowledge to make the initial sum bear fruit.
3. The reliability of the seller
What matters is knowing the seller you are buying from. Amazon, in particular, offers a feedback system on sellers, but there are also other sites that allow you to know the reputation of a portal dedicated to selling before venturing into the purchase. For example, is this shop. In any case, it is advisable to pay with traceable payment methods, choosing services that guarantee the return of the product (in case you are wrong or these do not conform to the description) and the return of the money in case of fraud.
