Before you go off and buy a watch, you should know these terms.
Any function of a watch that goes beyond simple timekeeping. Could be an annual or lunar calendar, could be something as basic as a stopwatch.
All those bits and pieces inside that run the thing.
A movement powered by a battery and regulated by the oscillations of a quartz crystal. It’s way more accurate than other watch types which isn’t to say we necessarily recommend you buy one.
A type of mechanical watch, containing a rotor on a pivot, that’s wound by the day-to-day movements of the wearer’s wrist. It’s also referred to as automatic.
Just because a watch says it’s water-resistant doesn’t mean you should swim or shower with it on. To be safe, only do so if it’s water-resistant up to one hundred meters.
So what are you looking for when you are buying a fancy watch?
Keep in mind, this watch is not something you wear to the gym! It’s a watch that you wear with your 3-piece suit!
Watches made from rose gold, titanium, and platinum show the world you know what you’re talking about.
Make it as simple as a chronograph or as intricate as a moon phase: When your watch has a big price tag, you should expect a little something extra from it.
Look for a unique design or point of view that only comes from serious watchmakers.
