Owning a watch is popular for many people and a must have for most people. A watch serves to tell you the time and the date and can be critical for your work or even for your home life (making sure everyone gets to the right place on time!). Imagine going for a lunch break and not knowing what time it is or imagine preparing for a doctor’s appointment and not knowing what time it is. Watches are also fashion statements – many people own many watches – one for going out, one for work, one for every day of the week. Watches have a very rich history. Since its birth of the wristwatch we have been seeing various forms of watch fashion. There are many popular watches out there to choose from – from cheap to hugely expensive.
There are many different well known watch brands including Rolex, Tag Heuer, Citizen, Fossil, Michael Kors, Bulova, Guess and many many more. All of these brands can offer you a great working watch but at varying price ranges. When considering what type of watch you want you will want to consider whether or not you want it for a man or for a woman or if you want the watch to be unisex.
You will next want to make sure that you measure your wrist to determine the size of the band. Next you will need to figure out what kind of display, design and color that you will want for your watch. Many watch retailers carry many different designs and colors so you will have no trouble finding what you want in a great watch. The last thing is price and the amount of “bling” you want on it. Does it need to be a diving watch and go to great depths? Diamonds? Gold? Platinum? Leather and on and on. There are thousands of variations and options.
Where to Purchase
There are many places where you can purchase your watch from. If you shop the various watch retailers you can find expensive and cheap watches. You can a simple every day watch for just a few dollars or you can spend thousands at a jewelry store. One of the most popular places where you can purchase a watch is to purchase a watch from the online world.
When you browse for watches online, you can find many watch retailers that run their own stores as well as other sites that may sell luxury watches for a significant discount – definitely start with Amazon or eBay. You can buy used Rolex and other luxury watches on eBay but buyer beware and make sure its not a fake. There are specialty retailers including watchco.com, Nordstrom, thewatchery.com, fossil.com and many many more – just execute a Google search. Make sure the company your going with is well established if your buying any type of luxury watch.
If you do not want to purchase a watch online you can consider purchasing a watch from a local retailer. Some of your department stores may carry the watch of your dreams and you can also check with local jewelers to see if they have what you are looking for – the benefit being you can see and feel the watch prior to purchase. But make sure you shop and compare prices first – that jewelry store in the mall probably doesn’t have the best price.
Remember when purchasing a watch take your time and find the watch that best suits your needs. Choosing the perfect watch can help make sure that you have a watch that will last you a lifetime and you will enjoy wearing every day.
