“A thing of beauty is a joy forever’ goes the age-old saying. This holds truer for watches than most other things in life. A classic timepiece is essentially ‘timeless’. It is class and elegance on the wrist and even in the pocket. It essentially enables the wearer to stand out and become an island in a sea of people. In other words, it shows off the respective individuality of the person wearing the watch and also bestows upon the wearer the stellar qualities of the watch itself. Let us take a quick look and see for ourselves, what makes a watch truly special- both for the owner as well as the people who admire it on the wearer’s wrist:
In the age of visuals, it adds to the aesthetics of your personality
Today we live in an age where visuals are of prime importance in everyday life. We are governed by our aesthetic impulses. From posing for selfies to standing out from the crowd with rolled-up sleeves, the watch we choose shows the world just what we stand for in life, and people base their judgments on the kind of watch we wear. For example, a diamond watch glittering on milady’s wrist would show everyone that she has truly arrived. Similarly, a large sports watch on a well-tanned wrist will denote the fact that the wearer loves the great outdoors and spends a lot of time there.
It has a great movement inside
Quartz watches with jewels are amongst the best movements for analog watches. These movements set the standard for all other types of watch mechanisms. Such a movement effectively ensures that the watch remains on time, all the time, and the owner has absolute confidence in his watch and can rely on it to tell the correct time, as and when required.
The heritage and the name of the brand
This is undeniably the single most important aspect of a watch that makes it truly special. Some of the best names have a history and a heritage that is their very own. For example, swiss made watches are renowned for their reliability and they contain some of the very best features found in watches all over the world. As a matter of fact, it would not be wrong to assert that a Swiss watch is a veritable epitome of class, durability, and value for money.
A watch is not much good if it can’t resist the ingress of foreign matter or even water. You will have to wear your watch while going out in the rain or even when washing your hands. If your watch has no water resistance it would quickly stop running and become useless. However, not all watches offer the same level of water resistance. While most common watches offer a basic level of protection, diver’s watches (for instance) can withstand deep sea dives and are reliable enough for divers to literally stake their lives on their watches.
The strap or bracelet
The bracelet or the strap of the watch gives it its very own unique personality. It enables the watch to stand out and define itself. It doesn’t matter if it’s a leather strap or a solid steel bracelet or even rolled gold. As long as it increases the allure and the beauty of the watch, it will enable it to stand out and look really chic.
Fit and finish
This is equally important in the making of a watch. If it doesn’t fit the hand well, it will be too tight or too loose and the wearer would not be comfortable wearing this watch. Similarly, the finish would denote its quality. A cheap copy of a real watch would be instantly visible for what it is, while an original watch would have its own luster and it would gleam in all its authentic purity.
There are many things that make a watch special. The first being the perception of the brand in the minds of the owners and the viewers. Quality and the strap play vital roles too, not to mention the overall fit and finish. Here, swiss made watches have all of these qualities that make them the best watches in the world.
