A Quick Guide to Buying a Woman’s Watch

Clothes alone already make a great outfit, but it’s the little things that serve as the cherry on top to your outfit: accessories. Accessories compliment the clothes you don which results to a complete ensemble that represents you. One classic accessory you should invest in is a watch. If you have to look at your wrist every once in a while to be able to know the time, might as well do it in style. Choosing the perfect watch could be much of a challenge because of the endless options that watch brands have to offer. Here’s a quick guide on buying the watch for you.

 

First off, choose the movement type of the watch you want whether it’s the mechanical, automatic, quartz or the watch complications. The mechanical watch does not need any batteries but requires regular winding. It’s kind of high maintenance because it is also sensitive to the environment thanks to the intricate springs and gears that help make the watch function. The automatic is similar to the mechanical kind, but the only difference is that the automatic watch is self-winding which means you need not go to a watch expert to have it winded. When not in use, you  may have to place it in a watch winder for the watch not to stop functioning and hassle you to reset it again and again. The quartz is one of the most common movement types of watches that people buy for its accurate time and low-maintenance. Unlike the first two types, it doesn’t need winding. It just needs a battery which you could replace after a year or so. Last but not the least, watch complications. Aside from telling time, some watches have other features such as a display that shows the date or the phases of the moon.

 

Second one you should think of is the style. For women, there is a sporty watch, jewelry watch and a dress watch. For a girls night out, you can don an elegant one piece  jumpsuit and pair it with an amazon sterling silver earrings and a Cartier fashion watch. If you’re an active kind of woman, go for a sporty watch from TAG Heuer or Casio. One should also consider the material of the watch. There’s the traditional gold watch (which now has different shades like yellow gold and rose gold), and the ceramic material. The gold is usually to give a more solid touch to a woman’s watch, and the ceramic is usually the more practical choice because it doesn’t scratch and gives a woman a more polished look. Comfort over fashion should always be the mindset when choosing something to buy. So the next time you want a watch, find the movement type you’re most comfortable with and then choose the appearance of your watch. It’s no doubt you’ll rock that watch for a long time.
