2. Know Your Style:

There are electronic watches, pocket watches, luxury watches (with diamond carvings) and vintage watches to name a few. But can you pull off all of them? Nope. You have to be 100 per cent sure of your intent to buy and use a watch. Don’t make a fool of yourself by wearing a watch that is unsuitable at most places or occasions.




3. Pick A Fitting Piece:

Buy a watch that actually fits you. Like clothes, watches, too, look good on a person only if they fit him or her well. Imagine a 100-kilo person wearing a tiny watch that has a small face and a short strap. That would be a fashion disaster!

4. Choose The Right Material:

A wrist watch may be made of stainless steel, be gold or titanium-plated, have leather straps and even majorly comprise synthetic materials such as nylon and rubber. You have to make sure that you pick a material that is elegant, easy-to-maintain and of course, cost-effective.




Remember: A wrist watch is your accessory. As long as you are comfortable wearing it and are not burning a hole in your pocket you are fine. Don’t over-splurge or pick something that’s too fancy. Be sensible while picking “the one”.
