Watches Dubai is an item that not many people think about when they’re shopping, but they can make a big difference in quality. The following are 10 tips to help you purchase the best watch for yourself or someone else.
- Watch Size
A good rule of thumb is that the larger your wrist size, the more difficult it will be to find a watch with a comfortable fit. A quick search should be able to yield some good options for most people with smaller wrists as well so don’t worry too much about this one.
- Watch Material
The men’s watch UAE watch material is another major point to look out for. You want to make sure that it is not made of cheaper materials or else you’ll end up with a very low-quality watch. It should be strong, but not so strong that it is uncomfortable to wear.
- Watch Band Material
Examine the band of your potential purchase as well. You want to find something that will hold up well and last for a very long time without breaking or becoming uncomfortable. Leather bands are a good bet if you can find them at the price range you are looking for, so are metal bands (stainless steel). Don’t buy a cheap plastic band as they might break on you within weeks of even wearing the watch.
- Watch Display
When it comes to watches, the display is one of the most important parts! You want to make sure you get a watch that has a classic dial with Roman numerals, or at the very least you want something with numbers and dates in a larger font for easier readability. Smokey Quartz is a common sight on cheaper watches, but that won’t last long. The best watch brands usually have their logo on the dial so if you can find one without it or with black background (white can be hard to read) then that’s generally going to be preferable.
- Case Material
This part is also another important piece of information you should pay attention to when shopping for watches. The case material is really important. It allows you to identify if the watch is going to last a long time or not. You want to look for either titanium or stainless steel, but not mass-produced steel that could fail in a few months or less.
- Water Resistance
If you plan on swimming with it, then water resistance should be your priority when shopping for a watch. Water-resistance is measured by how much pressure it can withstand before modifying the design of the watch such as changing the backplates, face, band and case materials etc… Water-resistance does vary from manufacturer to manufacturer so make sure you read up on what it is by looking at their specifications before choosing your next watch!
Even if you’re buying a watch for someone else, it’s still important to make sure you buy one that they can wear every day. A watch should not look too girly or boyish, but rather be simple and clean looking. Even though this is a fashion item, make sure you don’t go overboard with some type of two-tone design or anything too gaudy.
Where you buy your watch from is going to determine the price range it will fall in. The best place to buy a watch is from a retailer that specializes in watches but even then there are still good affordable options. However, you should be careful if you shop on the internet as some retailers have prices that are not listed on their website or there may be hidden fees!
The brand of watch is going to affect how long it will last as well. A brand name such as Rolex will cost you more but generally, last longer than an off-brand that is sold by an online retailer with no warranty on the unit itself. In general, it’s wise to buy from retailers that have a good reputation, especially when it comes to warranty issues and customer service (online vs physical store).
The last thing you want to do is get a watch that will leave you wanting an answer from customer service. You want to speak with someone that can answer your questions and solve your problems. You want to make sure the company has good services so it will be durable and you won’t need to keep calling them in the future.
