Comments Off on An Introduction to Watches


These are instruments used for measuring time in my opinion. They have been used since the beginning of the century for various purposes such as:
– A fashion icon
– An instrument to show off wealth
– A tool to measure time
– An item to collect

They also have many other purposes but the ones above are the most common ones. One might think that to own a watch requires a lot of money and a good sense about fashion and current watch trends but that’s not what you actually need. In my two years of experience as a collector I find that to own one you need to do a little research about the brands.

The second thing that you also have to do is to save some money for buying your dream piece that you have finally planned to settle down. These are just the basic tips that every person should know before buying one. I believe that many people cannot afford watches like a luxury watch but there are also other brands that do not break your bank and also look stylish and classical like a luxury watch. Some affordable brands are:
– Daniel Wellington
– Movement
– Casio
– Citizen
– Seiko
– Timex

The next topic that I would like to talk about is luxury watches. So whenever I hear people describing a luxury watch I always hear people saying that “Yo bro you know that I think end watches should have a huge dial and lots of bling”. I would like to approach such kind of people by telling them that this basically shows that the watch is highly inexpensive and immature. So I would like to start this topic defining

“WHAT IS A LUXURY WATCH”
A luxury watch basically refers to an expensive timepiece made of very fine quality and precision. So these watches are just a way of how people express their wealth. The main things that you need to check when buying a one of these pieces is:
– Movement
– Price
– Reputation of the brand
– Style
– Maintenance

I will discuss this entire topic in another article whereby I will explain all these features in detail and also some additional points that you need to know before buying a “Luxury Watch”.

The next topic that I am about to discuss is:

TYPES OF WATCHES
I am quite sure you guys might be wondering what types of watches are available in the market. Well these are basically different categories of them in the watch world not to be confused with different brands of watches as that is an entirely different topic. Below are the main three types:
– Dress watches
– Casual watches
– Functional watches

So the very first type of watch that you should own is a dress watch. The main reason owning a dress watch first out of all the three is that dress watches are always worn with business and formal outfits.

The second one that a person should own is a casual watch this is just basically for outings and other leisure activities.

And finally the last one on our list that you should own are functional watches and these are just basically the aviation watches, dive watches, racing watches and field watches.
