FIRST OF ALL: TRY THE WATCH FOR REAL
The golden rule to follow is simple (and it’s the same as for glasses): you have to see AND try the watch for real! No purchase on the internet without having tried the watch, it’s really important!
Why ? Because even if you have all the technical information, a photo or a 3D image is not worth the reality. The materials murrayblog.tistory.com/15 take and reflect the light, there are material effects… as for a garment.
Proof in image: on the left, a retouched photo or a 3D rendering; on the right, a photo taken in a living room.
I am unable to give you the leads to find THE watch (because it depends on your personality, your tastes, your social background …) but I can nevertheless give you some leads to avoid certain watches https://www.theblogpoint.com/tips-how-to-choose-maintain-your-watch/ As for a garment, I use the basic matrix: size, material, design (equivalent of fit, material, cut).
THE SIZE OF THE WATCH
The watch should be proportional to your wrist. There, beyond the measurements given in millimeters, it is also a question of feeling . Hence the interest of trying it before buying it. You should absolutely avoid tiny watches that feminize the wrist and oversized watches with lugs protruding from your wrist.
We really need to ban oversized watches ! (even if we are doing more and more today…) We can see that this is just ugly. Small reminder: the watch must not be seen by others, it must remain discreet!
In the same spirit: no crown or huge push buttons on the sides , it is a total lack of finesse and elegance (be sure to watch if you manage to take them in hand, in general we catch by the underside with your fingernail and then pull).
A bracelet is your size when you can put your index finger between your wrist and the bracelet, and nothing more (except for diving or sports watches, they are tight against the suit).
