Choosing Watches for Men

A watch is a wonderful gift to get for any special man in your life. Your boyfriend, husband, father, and even grandfather will certainly appreciate a nice wristwatch. After all, a man’s watch says a lot about him. Here are a few tips to help you find the right one.

Price Limit

Before setting out to search for a watch, you should know what your budget is, and what falls under that budget. Least costly watches are about $60 to $200. These include watches with plastic and resin composites or fashion and sport watches. More costly ones are around $300 to $700. These would include stainless steel, leather, titanium and carbon fiber. The most costly ones are $1000 or more and are formal and designers watches. They are also mechanical watches and utilize precious metals for certain features, such as gold-plated or a platinum piece.


Each style of watch comes along with a set of basic rules. Dress or classic watches should be made of gold material, have a plain thin case, and thick markings and hands with lots of tritium. Designer watches should be designed by someone with a world-wide reputation. These watches may sometimes look unusual. Lastly, sports watches are usually large, have bezels with prominent markings, are water resistant to some degree, and generally have thick, luminous hands and markings.


Before purchasing, you should learn some facts about the watch manufacturer’s reputation. You can do your own research by going online or asking friends or relatives who already own the specific brand you are interested in.

Places to Buy

The most prestigious watch brands are available only in authorized retailers. You can use an internet watch catalogue to choose watches you would like to buy. You can also go to the retailer’s official shop for details and the prices of a watch.

Right Size

The size of a watch has a lot to do with your body structure. If you have a larger structure, you may want to choose watches with large faces. If you have a smaller structure, beware of how larger watches might look on your wrist.

Water Resistance

A watch that is 100 meters deep water resistant will save your watches if they are worn during a workout or if you are caught in a rainstorm.

Life Expectancy

Stainless steel will last longer than leather. The life of mechanical watches can be almost infinite.

Any man in your life will be grateful for the gift of a watch, especially when so much thought is put into buying the right one. Purchase a watch from Finest Watches to show him just how special his is to you.
