Choosing the best watches
It is difficult for modern man to imagine how people of the past managed without the tools for determining the exact time - hours.
Today, in order to find out what time it is enough to look at your wrist or pull a mobile phone out of your pocket. And although the technology has gone ahead and time can be found, wherever and whenever, the wrist watches are most popular.
In order for this accessory to be not only useful, but also beautiful, as well as please with its quality for many years, you should learn how to choose them correctly.
The clock is divided into two main types: mechanical, which are powered by a tightly wound spring, and quartz or electronic, battery operated.
The first type appeared quite a long time ago and since then has not lost its popularity. Everyone has seen old grandfather watches that have been around for decades. The disadvantage of such a watch is the unevenness of the spring unwinding, which entails a large error.
However, modern masters avoid this by embedding automatic winding into the mechanism.It is in this detail that the minus of this watch is hidden. Repair of such parts is quite complicated and often requires the removal of this part of the device.
In any case, the mechanical clock was used for decades and perfectly managed without any modern details, and the durability of hand mechanisms is legendary. Therefore, this type is quite expensive, although this does not cause the demand for them to fall.
A much more common battery-powered quartz watch. This fact makes them much cheaper if you do not take into account designer things.
For an ordinary person, and even more so a young girl, it is preferable to choose this type of watch, as fashion changes, and you can always buy new ones. And with mechanical so obviously not work.
Sports people choose for themselves electronic models, because besides the convenient digital display of watches, they are often equipped with all sorts of additions in the form of a pulse counter, an alarm clock and other bells and whistles. In addition, quartz watches are more precise than mechanical ones.
What should be the strap
If with the type of food everything is clear, then the appearance of the clock for many becomes quite a difficult task.In addition to the attractiveness of the bracelet should be functional and appropriate in size. This is especially true of women's products, because more and more watches serve not only as an indicator of time, but also as a bracelet, accessory, matched to the image.
At the peak of popularity is now a watch with multi-layered straps with pebbles, pendants, flowers. Such products also need to be chosen wisely, and if such a style is alien to you, it’s better to stop at the classical model.
Please note that the straps tend to wear out. Even the highest quality leather in six months or a year of active socks will have to be replaced. So we can conclude that the most durable and diverse - metal straps.
For example, bracelets for women's watches most often go brass, because This soft metal allows you to create complex shapes and elements. But because of the softness, the brass bracelet wears off pretty quickly and the coating on it starts to peel off and crack.
It is very important to choose not only the material, but also the length. Too short strap will dig into the skin, which is very uncomfortable.
And, if too long you can shorten in the workshop, with a short such number will not work.The best option would be to select a bracelet right on the arm, especially since many modern companies produce watches equipped with bracelets of different lengths.
Finally, it should be noted that even if you plan to buy simple and inexpensive watches, you should take them in a special store. Do not hesitate to use the advice of sellers, as a competent specialist still knows better than you. And do not forget to ask about discounts, because healthy savings have not hurt anyone.
