In formal social occasions, watches are often regarded as jewelry. For men who usually only wear jewelry such as rings, watches are more valued. Some people even emphasize that "watches are not only men's jewelry, but also the most important jewelry for men." So what should be paid attention to when buying men's watches?
The top priority of performance indicators!
The performance of a watch is one of our most concerned aspects. If a watch does not perform well. Presumably no one wants it enough! So what does watch performance include? Please look down.
Water resistance: The advent of waterproof watches has reduced tragedy to a certain extent. But we must be clear: different watches have different water resistance. Do not want to use the following table when swimming or taking a shower? Yes, as long as your watch is marked with a water resistance of 100 meters or more.
Functionality: In addition to the basic timekeeping function, an excellent watch can also have more practical functions, such as calendar function, stopwatch timer, etc., which can make your time concept more accurate.
Mobility: Who would hope that the watch you bought has problems with poor component and pointer movement?
Automatic winding: Many nights, we fell down and fell asleep, and woke up from a dream at midnight: I forgot to wind my watch. Rest assured, a watch with an automatic winding function will make you worry-free.
The type of watch is important for you!
Watches are divided into three categories, mechanical watches, quartz watches and electronic watches. They each have their own points and shortcomings. Is that enough? It depends on their own situation!
Mechanical watches: The earliest mechanical watches were powered by spirals. The advantage is that the service life is relatively long (this varies from person to person, depending on the use environment and their usual maintenance) and has a practical moon phase function (limited to high-end watches). The technology is quite mature. Disadvantages: There will be errors, usually about five to fifteen seconds a day.
Quartz watch: slightly younger than mechanical. Quartz watches are powered by batteries and electric motors. Advantages: It can be made very thin, the travel time is accurate, and there is no need to wind the chain. The error is less than one month, and it is about ten to thirty seconds. Disadvantages: Generally, the battery needs to be replaced in one or two years, and the life of the movement is generally about five to ten years.
Electronic watch: energetic and challenging. Advantages: powerful, with a year error of ten to thirty seconds, a compass and other functions. Disadvantages: It takes a year or two to replace the battery.
Material and style, and match it!
This is also based on the identity of the person wearing it, such as an 18K gold strap on a young man in his 20s. It is not impossible, but it will give people a sense of incongruity. Not only the expected effect is not achieved, but it will be greatly reduced.
General materials are pure gold, gold-plated, stainless steel, alloy, titanium, rubber, ceramic. Pure gold: The price is generally more than 10,000 yuan, and there are no obvious disadvantages.
金 Gold-plated: the price is not fixed, the disadvantage is that it is easy to wear off over time. Stainless steel, alloy, titanium: This material is generally available on the market, and the price is moderate. It should be noted that it is prone to corrosion when sweating or doing chemical work.
Rubber: New product, affordable. Various color shapes. Watch out for rubber allergies.
Ceramics: Affordable and beautiful. Cons: Inferior is not very strong.
Keep consistent with your temperament. Whether you are introverted or extroverted, whether you are keen on sports or advocating simplicity, the watch should be consistent with your temperament. An understated man will obviously not choose an exaggerated large dial watch.
一致 Be consistent with the environment. Watches are used to set off the environment and identity, and it is not appropriate to excessively pursue shining and eye-catching. Therefore, different occasions need to be equipped with different watches. When participating in a festive event, you can choose delicate, cute and beautiful. On the contrary, when attending mourning and other activities, you should strive for low-key and simple, a black leather watch is a good choice.
