Pick the right luxury watch

Choosing the right luxury watch for yourself can be challenging if you do not know which luxury watch would be the best fit for you. I was reading an article at Esquire which is talking about “What to Look Out For When Buying a Luxury Watch” and I thought I would share my point of view for people when they are trying to get the watch they believe is the right fit for them.

When picking the right luxury watch, you should narrow the search by Watch Brand, Watch Movement, Case Size, Material, Features /Complication, as well as the budget.

Pick the right luxury watch

Watch Brand

There are many Watch brands, but not every watch brand provides the same quality. One of the most known watches manufactures are in Switzerland, and you should focus on those watch brands. You are probably aware of Rolex, OMEGA, Cartier, Breitling, and other great watches made in Switzerland.

When choosing the right watch brand, you should focus on the type of watch you would like to wear. If you are the person who wants to wear only dress watches, maybe Patek Phillipe or Cartier is the right choice for you.

If you are looking for a watch which is more vertical, Rolex or OMEGA might be the right choice.

The key to choosing the right watch brand is to know what kind of activity you are planning to do with the watch. You do not want to buy Patek Phillipe on the crocodile strap and go for a swim, but I assume that you do have a common sense.

I do have more than one watch brand because each watch I do have is for a different activity.

Watch Movement

There are different watch movements which do help to run the intricate movements. You could get Quartz, Hand-Wound, or Automatic (self-wind). Each watch movement has its benefits and you should weight it against the cons.

•    Quartz watch movement has a small battery which does send the energy to keep the movement moving. Watches with Quartz movements are more accurate than mechanical movements and easy to maintain.

•    Hand-Wound is the first original movement. There are many watches which do have this movement; however, due to its nature to wind the watch on manually, they become less popular movements; however, there are still people who prefer the manual wind especially with the Omega Speedmaster Pro Moon watches.

•    The Automatic movement became the most popular because it’s straightforward to keep the watch running. The rotor which runs the movement creates the energy by just wearing the watch. Check this rolex super clone.

When choosing the right movement, you should know all the pros and cons; that way, you will be able to enjoy the watch entirely without being surprised about the way the watch is powered as well as the cost of fixing the watch.

Case Size

If you ever experience different watch case size, you know that not each size fits you perfectly. To pick the right watch which does fits your wrist comfortably needs some testing.

You should feel the watch on your wrist at least one time to know if the case size is the right one. I do enjoy 42mm. Many Rolex fans, do like 40mm because that the most commons size for Submariners.

I would suggest going to an Authorized dealer for the watch you are looking to get and feel the timepiece on your wrist.

Sometimes the case size might be the right one; however, the case thickness might not be the right fit. Some timepieces, especially with the manual wind, do have the advantage of having the cases very thin due to its way of the movements are made.
