There are several types of watch movements. Though, in general, timepieces generally fall in 2 primary categories–mechanical and quartz. To know if watch has a quartz and mechanical movement, pay more attention to its second hand. The second hands of quartz watches have tick-tock movements per second. This is the reason why luxury watch brands utilize mechanical or automatic movements.

Some watch brands are affordable, some are not. Choose a brand and a style, depending on your budget. Don’t worry, there is a watch for every budget range. Pick one that will compliment your style and personality. If you are willing to spend a little bit more, select a watch that can serve as an heirloom piece.

3. Pick a timepiece with a minimalist, classy design.

4. Choose the most appropriate watch size.
