Stylish Watches Make You Feel Cool

Aug 30, 2008
Watches are quite possibly the most important accessory in a man's clothing collection. Watches come in all sorts of style and price range. There are cheap, plastic watches encased in plastic and sold at the superstore. Then there are luxurious, diamond-studded watches, displayed elegantly behind a glass window. There's a watch for every situation, depending on whether the wearer wants substance, style, or a combination of both.

The majority of mainstream production line watches are quartz clocks, which uses an electric current and a small crystal to keep the clock running near time. The quartz clock is the most widely used system for accurately keeping time, and with good reason. It's surprisingly typical for quartz clocks to be far more accurate than their handcrafted, collectible counterparts.

Although quartz clocks dominate the majority of the market, watches are pretty strongly split between function- and fashion-focused watches. Watches designed for fashion and style are usually sold as jewelry rather than time-telling tools. Expensive watches, from brands such as Rolex, are common given out to recognize social achievement or status. These beautiful, eccentric watches sell for tens of thousands of dollars.

For those claiming to be above vanity, there are watches with many types of useful and unique functions, from the practical to the absurd.

Atomic clocks are growing in popularity. They can be somewhat confusing to set up, but are extremely reliable because they synchronize with the "official time" automatically on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the majority of people aren't synchronized to "official time." Even though time commonly is measured in one-second intervals, people are very rarely ever on the same page. Clocks, watches, and electronic devices in the same household or office could each be several minutes off from each other.

Very few "geek phones" have great success, but the market remains full of them. These computerized watches are equipped with small screens, GPS, flash drives, games, music, and of course, the arithmetic calculator. While they have many valuable functions, large screens or buttons are difficult to be wear comfortably and fashionably on a person's watch. They are typically considered social taboo, but useful nonetheless.

When purchasing a high-profile expensive watch, it's important to purchase from a reputable deal. Maybe "dealer" isn't the best choice of words. Watches are one of the most popular luxuries items to be illegally produced and sold in the black market. Especially overseas where trade is not as strictly regulated, many of the great deals offered on the street aren't quite what you think. Even though many fake replicas closely duplicate their full-price counterpart, you get what you pay for.

There are quite a few different ways to separate the fake watches from the real thing. Understand what price range is reasonable for the watch you are interested in. When possible, compare the watch in question next to a certified watch. It's easy to miss some mistakes in materials and craftsmanship if you don't know what to be looking out for.

A final suggestion is to take a moment and consider the deal. Is this deal too good to be true? It is possible to buy "high-quality" replicas, though. If you don't mind that you don't own the real thing, a fraudulent "expensive" watch can make an interesting conversation starter.

Regardless of whether you see a watch as a tool or piece of jewelry, it's an essential part of anybody's collection. With countless options available, there's definitely something that will satisfy you.
