Choosing a watch for your man is no easy task. You need to understand the fact that it can be tricky trying to buy a gift for your partner. Buying a watch, in particular, can be a nightmare sometimes. There is so much choice that it can sometimes be difficult to know where to begin. Here is a list of ideas that will help you to choose the perfect watch for the man in your life.

Strap

When you’re looking through the thousands of men’s watches on the market you need to consider the strap. Now, straps are more important than you might think. They need to be strong and durable so they don’t break. But they also need to complement the watch face. Some watches can be ruined by having awful straps, and you need to consider this.

Face

The watch face is the biggie because it’s the thing that most people see. So it needs to look as elegant, trendy and amazing as possible. But on top of all of that it needs to be clear and concise with telling the time. A great watch face can be a thing of enduring beauty. But an ugly watch face is a massive eyesore. So you need to take the time to find the best-looking watch faces within your budget range.

Material

A lot of the time you’re going to need to think about the material of the watch. You need to choose something durable and long-lasting. It’s important to think about the material of the face and the strap. These might be the same or they might vary from one another. When it comes to watches the most commons materials are generally metal, leather and plastic. So you need to do your homework and choose the one you think is the most appropriate.

Digital or Analogue

One of the major considerations for men’s watches these days is whether to go analogue or digital. You’ve got to think about the purpose of the watch, as well as the tastes of your man. If they are someone who’s sporty or outdoorsy then a digital watch might be perfect. However, if it’s being bought as a smart dress watch, then analogue would certainly be the way to go.

Cost

Of course, you’re going to need to set yourself a budget for buying the watch. It might be a good idea to do this as soon as you make the decision to buy one. That way you know what budget you can work within. Now the price might vary depending on the occasion for which you are buying the watch. If it’s as a surprise gift, you may not want to spend as much as you would for a wedding anniversary idea. Just make sure you have a budget sorted before you start shopping around.

There are quite a few things you need to think about when you want to choose the perfect watch. Buying a watch for your hubby or boyfriend is a little more complicated than buying for yourself. So it might be worth doing some research before you begin. It’s an important gift so you need to make sure it’s the right one.

  1. I want to have a couple watch. When looking for a watch, I really stare at it and see if there’s a “love at first sight feel”. Ganun ako kaarte. Parang looking for soul mate lang and looking for a perfect match. I don’t look for the price, mura man o mahal, yun lang mas madami lang talagang pagpipilian at mas durable sa mamahalin pero madami ding pangit na mamahalin.

    The clock or the face, tinitingnan ko lang if it does the basic function of a watch. Sometimes it’s too crowded or there’s too much distraction na parang it’s for accessories na lang talaga than doing the purpose of giving us a time. Sometimes, yung brand name lang talaga ang binabayaran.

    Worst thing that I’ve done is buying a watch online. Sigh. Such a waste of money, what you see is NOT what you get.

    Sometimes I just ask him if what is his preferences. I send him pictures of watches that I like or we go together in a window shopping to get to know each other better.
