Are you a first-time buyer, or you want to get your first wristwatch like Rolex Yacht Master? Here are essential tips you should take into consideration as a beginner?
Check The Size
Every clothing guide asks for an ideal size for clothing and accessories so that watches would be no different. Make sure that the watch case does not exceed the width of your wrist, nor do you opt for a watch that is too thick. Logically, size also depends on personal taste, but look for harmony in the look, as the watch should not stand out from the set. Stronger people can wear watches with a bigger case, while thinner people should avoid it.
Suitable To Your Lifestyle
If it’s your first watch, you’d probably like to use it as much as possible. You should know that watches are meant to be used. So, if you’re more casual and laid-back, I don’t recommend investing in a formal watch. Go for something more sporty, fun, and casual. In addition to the traditional stainless-steel bracelet, you can use other materials such as silicone or bracelet, perforated leather, among others. There is no binding rule. The set will tell for itself.
Likewise, if you spend most of your time in formal attire, look for a watch that suits that reality. Opt for discretion and simplicity. Roman numerals or minimalist bars are always welcome. Stainless steel bracelets are versatile and go well with formal attire, but leather gets more attention (match the color of the bracelet with the belt and shoe).
Of course, there are exceptions where a watch goes well on formal and casual occasions, but the general rule is to match.
Don’t Be In A Hurry
Buying a watch is a process that requires calm and patience. Do the research, go to the stores, and try on the watches. Talk to more knowledgeable friends. Enjoy the experience!
Buy What You Like
This tip goes with everything in life: don’t ever buy something to satisfy other people; that is, don’t purchase to impress or get affirmation from other people. Receiving compliments is all well and good, but it may be that few people notice what’s on your wrist or take it for granted.
In this way, ignore what others will think. Search, experiment, chat, enjoy the experience and buy for your pleasure.
