1. Waste or not?
Luxury watches price rang from more than $1,000 to $1 million or more. The most expensive one is tourbillon watch, only the elite watchmakers have the technology. (This two century-old mechanism constituted by the rotating frame, rotating frame fixed wheel and escapement. And complete a rotation every 60 seconds to offset the timing error caused by gravity.)
2. Rose gold, platinum or gold?
The shade of the gold is decided by the mixed quantity of gold and silver. Gold is always fashionable, but you can choose one of the rose gold watches among numerous watches. Rose gold has the highest concentrations of copper, there is a soft, slightly pink hue.
3. Steel or titanium?
High specification stainless steel has high strength, good gloss, and a high degree of rust and corrosion. However, compared to steel, titanium is high strength 30%, 50% higher light, and more corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic, or low or even allergic. Less is more titanium watch is soft (some would say dull), and although the intensity is high, but it is easy to be scratched.
4. Simple or complex?
On the production of watches, the complexity means beside the simple timekeeping function, mechanical watches have other functions such as calendars or moon phase indicator. Complexity is involved sophisticated mechanical devices, such as calendar and double-second timer, both of which contain hundreds, tiny, hand-assembled parts. It requires a lot of labor, production, and special features, so it is very precious.
5. Big watch or small?
Men’s watches are just like simulated by hormone, become larger and larger. They broke the boundary of 40mm in diameter in the turn of the century. The wave of inspiration is largely from watches worn by the Italian old drivers. The purpose to design men’s watch was to allow drivers in the gloomy Mediterranean could read the watch.
6. Need stopwatch?
Most men highly respect stopwatch (a kind of stopwatch watch) because those buttons and dials look deputy man, shining. They also play a role, mechanical chronograph watches can accurate to one-fifth of a second, while the quartz electronic watches are accurate to hundredths of a second. But unless you sign to the Iron Man, or most of them are just for decoration.
7. Water resistance, 5bar or 20bar？
Water resistance of watches is varies widely, mainly marked on the dial or case back. Note that these small letter because the depth units are not uniform. Most companies measure water resistance in meters, maybe also use ATM (atmospheric pressure) or bar, 1ATM and 1 bar is equivalent to 10 meters. As long as the depth can be selected, 50-meter water resistance means you can take a bath wearing a watch.
