Although it may go unnoticed for many people , the watch is and will remain a symbol of status and elegance. This accessory is more than just a garment, as it projects the character, style and personality of the wearer.
Choosing the right watch can be a tiring task, that’s why the Orient watch brand with more than 70 years of experience brings you some tips that can help you choose the watch that best suits your style and personality.
1. The size
The proper size of a watch not only depends on the wrist and arms of the wearer, but how discreet you want to be. Generally, those with a larger diameter are associated with more risky and striking styles. On the contrary, the smallest or thinnest transmit more elegance and sobriety. “The watch should not be so small that you cannot see the time on it, nor so large that it protrudes from the width of your wrist.” explains Andrés Rubio, commercial manager of Orient Colombia.
If the diameter of the wrist is below 15 cm, you should avoid watches with dials with a diameter greater than 40 millimeters. Otherwise, you should look for Small women’s watches that are at least 42 millimeters in diameter.
2. Elegance or fashion
For those who dress in a classic and elegant way, the most recommended are watches with a leather pulse. This type of formal watches will serve you for special occasions, work meetings, business meals, etc.
If your search focuses on a versatile accessory, we suggest you choose a piece in steel, gold or silver in color, preferably an automatic model that has timeless designs and will accompany you for a longer time, giving you that special touch that will give character to your style.
For a casual look, large or medium-sized wristwatches with colored backgrounds are an excellent choice. However, if you wear a formal look, it is best that you choose metallic watches that match any outfit, making you look sober and elegant.
For occasions such as business parties, cocktails or weddings, you can wear slim wristwatches. Depending on the additional accessories (ring, earrings, etc.) that you are going to wear that day, opt for the silver or gold models, with shiny details, for example, Swiss crystals. And when it comes to exercising, choose sports watches that, in general, tend to be bright and fun colors.
3. The price
On costs Andrés Rubio indicates “high-end watches are traditionally of Swiss origin, and their production is a process that has been inherited for generations, Japanese products on the other hand have more affordable prices and their quality is foolproof.” Automatic machinery, additional functions such as chronographs, sapphire crystals, limited editions, or the addition of precious stones are the main variables that influence the value of your watch.
4. Consider your skin color
For dark-skinned women, it is recommended to use accessories that highlight your skin tone, a blue, magenta watch, variety of intense reds and a wide range of vivid colors will make you look like that accessory like a star.
If your skin is of a brunette tone, try warm colors, yellow, green, orange, beige and tones that contain a tropical gradation, they will bring to your outfit the harmony you want and if you are white skin, look for a color palette dark, for example brown, blue, dark red, black or dark silver.
5. Durability and maintenance
Automatic watches due to their characteristic hibernation and production quality have a much longer lifespan, while battery-powered quartz watches will require a little revision every time we replace the battery. These watches have an approximate life of 10 years.
Watches are practical purchases that can accompany you for several years and become the reason for several anecdotes, do not feel guilty for rewarding yourself when you go to buy one, it is the perfect gift and will teach people a part of your style and taste.
