Planning on finding your perfect watch to complement your wardrobe? If yes, chances are you're deep in thought, trying to figure which is the best pick for you. Well, just so you know, we've all been there — finding the perfect watch has never been an easy task. Of course, if you're really into watches, you can relate when we say, "you can't just walk into a store and pick any watch that catches your eye." It just doesn't work that way. But there's good news — the process can be easier if you got a plan. And yes, this post is going to walk you through just about everything you need to know. Here's our 10-step plan to find your perfect timepiece: 1: For starters, we suggest every newbie explore relevant online communities and ask watch-related questions. So, no, don't go there and begin to ask which you should buy — that's too straightforward. Moreover, the forum participants don't know anything about you, so chances are their answers or advice won't add up. With this in mind, you won't be wrong to focus on asking questions that can build your knowledge of watches. And if need be, digress to other questions that can increase your chances of finding a wrist-worthy timepiece. 2: Get a journal/book and create a detailed list of features/qualities you value in a watch. Yes, at this point, it's crucial to take your time and of course, think about every feature that crosses your mind. So what kind of features are we talking about? Well, it's all up to you to decide — pretty sure your little knowledge of watches can help you fill up the list in no time. Just sit and ask yourself a few thought-provoking questions. For example:
- Am I looking for a particular complication?
- Do I need standard lugs?
- Will I use the watch in water?
- Do I need one that glows in the dark?
