A Watches portrays an individual’s personality, taste, wealth, and even humor. Choosing a Watche is so overwhelming since there are so many things to consider. Having an appropriate watch for any event ensures that you are dressing the part wherever life takes you. Every watch wearer must look after his/her watch thoroughly. Keep the watch from weather elements that may harm it such as wind, and dust. Look for a watch-case to help you organize and store your collection. Make sure that you wear the right watch for each occasion. Some people will wear the same watch in different and unrelated events, which is a grooming mistake. Always check with your watch vendor for detailed information before purchasing a luxury watch. With that in mind, here are the top four different types of watches to own.
1. Analog Watch
These watches have displays with a miniature clock-face with 12 hours, an hour hand, and a minute hand. Some will include a second hand. Analog watches will have either traditional numbers or Roman numerals. Most analog watches have marks that represent the 60 minutes contained in an hour.
2. Automatic Watch
This watch operates due to the regular motion of the wearer’s wrist. These watches do not need winding if worn daily. The energy is stored by using a rotor, half-disc metal weight, which spins when you move your arm. The energy powers the watch and keeps it working when not in use. The stored energy can keep an unworn watch running for 24 to 48 hours. Automatic watches are also known as Self-Winding Watches.
3. Dress Watch
A dress watch is the most elegant of all watches. The watch has no complication, and the only purpose is to tell time. A dress watch is simple, beautiful, and minimalistic. A dress watch has some gaudy watch that is bejewelled with diamonds or a chronograph that is so big it looks like a clock. This ornament is subtle, understated, and charming. The watch should not be worn with jeans, t-shirts, to the gym, or bowling on Saturday nights. Your business suit, dinner jacket, and tuxedo will do just fine.
4. Chronograph Watch
A chronograph is a fancy name for a stopwatch. Using a chronograph is easy. You have to press the start/stop button on the side of the watch to start or stop the watch. After you have finished your timing, press the bottom button to reset it back to zero. The chronograph function on Chrono watches dials lets you time races and events.
If you have developed a passion for watches, you can start with these four types and then work your way to other watches. All you have to do is to look at the many different kinds of watches. You will probably feel overwhelmed since there are many choices out there. The best way to begin is to narrow your search into categories, based on the type of watch and occasion you will be attending. This move will make your purchasing decision a lot easier.
