      Hi bud! I’m glad these tips helped you. Cheers!

  2. Hi. Personally I prefer Japanese brands especially Orient & Seiko. because they are inexpensive & durable & yet beautiful. In my country, few people can buy Swiss brands because of the price. So most of Swiss brands is fake here. Thanks for your good site. Good luck.

      Hi there. Orient and Seiko are actually my favorite too because their offering is truly some of the best value for money. If you’re starting out with automatic watches, these two brands will be the best to buy (before you move up to the more expensive Swiss watches… LOL!).

  3. I like that you talked about purchasing a watch depending on the occasions you would be wearing it. Someone recently told me that wearing a certain style of watch to a job interview improves your chances of getting the job. You did a great job explaining what watch looks good for what type of event.

      Definitely Ruby. A watch can change people’s perception towards you. I can imagine myself frowning upon someone who want’s to interview for a top financial executives position but wears a G-Shock or something equivalent. Not saying the G-Shock is not a good watch, but there’s a time and place for everything, and unfortunately the G-Shock is not the right fit for that occasion.

  4. I agree that you want to consider the style and color of a watch. Finding something that you like and that matches your style would be good too. My sister is looking for a watch, so she’ll have to consider the style.

      Yes that’s exactly right Hannah =)

  5. I do agree with finding a watch that fits your wrist. There’s so many watches that become cumbersome if they are too big and this seems to be a popular route for so many these days. Some people want the watch to stand out these days. Not for me.

    I would choose leather as the option for wearing, it doesn’t get sweaty like the plastic ones and not heavy like metal.

    Thanks for showing the butterfly clasp on a leather strap, I do like that type of fitting but have never seen a leather strap fitted with a butterfly clasp before. This will be my next choice.

    Everyone is different which is a good thing but for me, I only want the day feature on a watch, I’m not into too many dials.

    I like the Seiko Cocktail Time watch, looks sublime.

    Thanks for the info,

    Simon.

      Hi Simon. I totally agree with you. I never like big watches as I feel those are ugly and I will never wear them in a hundred years. But not everyone is like me – those oversized Daniel Wellington watches still got sold by the dozens! But then again that’s how our world works as those watches are considered to be the trendy things nowadays. I can just hope the fad will stop in the near future =)

      Thanks for dropping by buddy!
