Watches are not just great for telling time; they make a killer fashion accessory. If you’re looking to up your style a bit, then maybe a watch is for you. Here’s my guide on picking the perfect watch:

What makes watches such a great fashion accessory is that they come in so many different styles. This is fantastic because it means there’s a watch out there to suit anyone’s style. It’s also a bit of a double-edged sword because now you have so many to choose from! It can be difficult to narrow down your choice to just one style. My advice would be to pick the style you think will suit most of your looks. If you intend to wear a watch strictly for when you work out, then a sporty style will suit you. If you want a watch for everyday wear, then maybe a classic or trendy style is the best for you. Or, you may only want this watch as an accessory for really fancy outfits. Those outfits you wear on special occasions that demand you get dressed up. In this scenario, you might want to go big and get a really high-end watch with diamonds or something.
It’s also important you know what type of watch you’re getting. Some watches are mechanical; some are automatic. This is only important because it will determine how you get it repaired or maintained. For example, automatic watches require automatic watch maintenance. Whereas a mechanical one won’t be able to get maintenance this way.
Decide On A Fit!
Now then, when you buy a watch you have to get it fitted to your wrist. This is to make sure the watch feels comfortable when you wear it. There’s no set size that’s perfect for someone, it depends on personal preference. Some people prefer to have their watches fit snug and tight around their wrist. They like it to stay set in place because they feel like it looks better that way.
However, I have seen some people prefer to have their watches a little loose. Particularly with some smaller, trendy, watches, they like the loose fit. It can be more comfortable and make your wrist feel more free. It also makes your watch look a little bit more like a fashion accessory, rather than anything else. Your watch starts to feel more like a fancy bracelet, instead of a watch. Again, some people prefer to have it this way, it’s up to you. Your job is to figure out how you like your watch to fit your wrist.
Pick A Price!
Every watch style will have its own different price bands. There will usually be the watches at the top of the scale, then mid-range, and then the cheap ones. You’ll want to decide on how much you’re going to spend on a watch. If you’re buying it strictly as a fashion accessory, then you’ll want one that looks good. This means you may not need a watch at the high end with all the fancy features. You just want one that looks cool and sexy. Decide what you want your watch for, and that will give you an idea of the prices you’re looking at.
