Time is an important part of life. We need to know the time for a lot of reasons, whether we are at work or we are waiting for somebody, we always need to have a source of time nearby so that we don’t lose track. In some situations, we cannot have our cell phones with us, or we just do not have one. The best solution in most of these situations is to wear a watch. However, we also need to be careful with our watches. Some are cheap and break apart easily, or just don’t work very well in the first place. Here are a few qualities we should look for in a decent watch.
When we put a watch around our wrist for extended periods of time, we want to make sure it is not made of anything we are allergic to. We also want to make sure it isn’t costume jewelry, so that we reduce chances of getting gangrene or something similar. We need to make sure our watch is made of something other than cheap plastic as well, unless that is all we can afford at the moment. In this case, we need to make sure we don’t wear it on our wrist for too long. We should try to keep it in our pocket.
In addition to material, it is also a good idea to ask the seller about how durable or sturdy the watch is, so that we know it is safe to accidentally drop it a time or two. Sometimes a watch can be made of decent material, but very haphazardly. We want to make sure our watch is not easy to destroy.
Sometimes we forget to remove our jewelry when we get into the pool or shower. In this case, it is probably smart to make sure our chosen watch is waterproof (like this Daniel Wellington watch) so that we don’t keep having to buy a new one every week or so. Likewise, it is probably safe to buy a spare battery or two, just in case our watch stops working in the middle of the day.
These are just a few qualities we should take into account when we buy a watch. There are plenty more, but these particular features are a good place to start, especially if this happens to be our first watch, or our first in a while.
