Before selecting a watch ask yourself this question, why do I need this watch? If you are looking for a watch to just check your time then you need to go for less sophisticated watch without any extra features which you are not going to use it anyway. One should always choose a watch which will blend with their profession or their hobbies or interest. If you are a CEO of a company and you were a suit to the office then you should choose a watch which looks dignified and one which matches with your clothes. On the other hand if you are a trendy person you should go for a designer watch.
Even there are specialised watches for persons with different interests like mountaineering, deep see diving or even people who travel a lot and they should choose their watches with accordance to their interest. A deep see diver should choose his watch with features to measure the depth, and also it should be water resistant at extreme pressure. A pilot should choose his watch with the maximum complications. If you travel a lot then you need to get a watch with various time zones and with features to withstand climatic changes. If you enjoy sports then you should choose metal watches made from titanium of stainless steel which are resistant to harsh activities and various weather conditions. Selection of a watch is like selecting a dress or jewellery, it should go with your personal taste and it should be well acquitted with your outdoor activities.
A watch can be classified as analogue or digital based on the way it shows the time. The traditional two handed way of showing time is the analogue watch and the modern display of time in numbers is the digital watch. A watch which has both these functions is known as the ‘anadig’ watch.
In analogue watches instead of using the traditional mechanical parts, quartz crystal is used these days. The electronic impulse generated from the battery passes through the quartz and records the frequency from the crystal and it transfers to the step motor to which the second hand it connected. The advantage in using the quartz crystal is that it is more accurate unlike its counterpart which uses the mechanical part which has more moving parts and thus there is more friction which leads to less accuracy.
In the case of digital there are no moving parts inside the watch and the same procedure which is used in the analogue is used here, and instead of the step motor, the LEDs or LCD is used to display the numbers. The reason for using the quartz crystal is that it has an amazing accuracy and an unprecedented frequency. These watches can run up to five years with a single battery.
Selecting a watch to buy is not like walking on feather, one has to see various features selecting. The modern generation watches are not only used for checking the time but also for a variety of purposes and this makes still more difficult for the people to make their choices. Here are a few tips to be considered when buying a watch.
First and the foremost factor to be considered is the price. As today’s watches range in a wide variety of prices, the variance on the price of the watches have been increased. There is no general method for calculating the worth of a watch. But it is always better to buy a good watch at a higher price which will last longer than a cheap watch which you will have to replace every now and then. Also there are a few type of watches like chronographic watches, calendar watches etc, which have additional features like world time, temperature measurement.
