How to Choose the Best Watch: 8 Factors to Consider

1. Budget

Before heading to the store, you need to decide on your budget. Most people purchasing new
watches are more likely t invest a big amount for all the added benefits in terms of durability and
design. How much are you willing to spend for a new timepiece?
If you are operating on a huge budget, feel free to invest on a high-quality watch. It would
definitely last a long time, with tons of awesome features.

2. The Watch Store

Where do you want to buy your watch? Whether you are getting a quartz or a mechanical watch,
there are three main components that you need to take into account–service, trust and price. It
doesn’t matter if you want to get it from an individual retailer or big department store.
Trust is crucial and credibility is crucial in this matter. Just in case you get a defective timepiece,
the seller must be able to address the issue as soon as possible, or return your money right then
and there. Go for a retailer that will do anything for your best interest as a customer.

3. Watch Type

There are plenty of women’s and men’s watches in Malaysia you can choose from. Since there
are many types of watches available in the market, watch shopping can be stressful and
overwhelming. At the end of the day, it all boils down to personal preference. The timepiece you
will choose must highlight your personality and style.

4. Watch Band Material

Pay close attention the watch band. Remember, that the watch you are wearing is part of your
outfit. You need to style it well. For many people, they choose a watch band that is versatile
enough to be worn with almost any outfit. Should you go for a bracelet band, or a classic two-
piece band? In addition to that, you need to familiarize yourself with watch band materials, from
rubber and plastic to ceramic and fabric.

5. Watch Sizing

You are so close in finding the perfect watch! The next thing you need to consider is watch
sizing. Every wrist size is unique, and the timepiece must fit you properly. You wouldn’t want
your watch to slide down your wrist. It must not be tight or loose enough. Check the case
diameter, case thickness and band width.
