Choosing the right watch for you depends on a number of factors. What do you do?

What are your preferences when it comes to watches for women? How about men’s watches? Do you like a casual watch, an automatic, chronograph?

As you can see, there is no one size fits all approach when choosing the right timepieces, but your quest in finding the right one will be made simpler by me as I am going to provide you with the necessary information you need to help you choose the right watch for you. Do read on to find out some simple tips.

Look at the Material of the Watch Strap

I’ve never been a fan of metal wrist straps at all simply because I cannot seem to get the right fit and they often feel cold, especially when the weather is cold. However, they do look nice and sleek and they are perfect to use if you are going outside to a black-tie event or something formal.

I prefer watches using leather straps because they are fit for any occasion. They can be worn every day and serves as a casual watch or you can also wear them during formal events as well.

Do keep in mind that when it is compared to metallic straps, that leader straps are not as tough as the aforementioned ones. Still, they look suede and nice no matter what event you go to. Of course, that still depends on your preference, right?

Watch Type

Most adults prefer to use analog watches or those where you can see the conventional hour-hand and minute-hand. They are also great for formal events as well, which is why I prefer them the most. However, digital watches have also risen in popularity thanks to the proliferation of smartwatches and fitness trackers.

Some people prefer the digital variety because it makes it easier for them to discern what time it is because the watch displays the actual time in numbers. Analog watches, however, look sleeker and more formal and are appropriate for black-tie events or the gala.

Though, I would prefer using a digital watch if you are a more active individual simply because you do not have to stop what you are doing to focus on your watch and see what time it is.


The style of the watch pretty much depends on what the purpose of the watch is going to be. If you want a watch that you can wear every day, then a more casual watch is preferred. This type of watch doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of, say, a chronograph watch, as it has a much simpler design. But, it is also this simplicity that makes it a great everyday watch.

A business watch or those that are used for formal events can either be an analog watch with a leather strap or metal strap. For more active individuals, a digital watch with a resin band is preferred simply because it is tougher when it comes to sweat and can withstand more rigorous activities.
