1. What to look for when buying a watch?

To buy a watch, you need to pay attention to the following four points: brand, origin, material, movement, and appearance.

Let's talk about the brand and the place of origin. In fact, the two mean the same thing. It is impossible to say that all Swiss brands must be produced in Switzerland. People in the industry know that most of the parts are produced in China and then assembled in China, so it is enough to know which country the brand is. Of course, the first choice in the field of watches is the Swiss brand. The quality and value of Swiss watches are second to none.

Secondly, the material, needless to say, can be understood at a glance. When diamonds, platinum, gold, etc. are placed on the watch, the price will naturally go up. But it should be noted that the material of the watch mirror is generally sapphire and mineral glass. There used to be plastic materials, but now it is rare. It is said that sapphire is better than mineral glass, but in fact it feels the same, a bit deliberately widening the gap.

Again, movements. Generally speaking, Swiss watches are ETA movements. Almost all mechanical watches of the Swatch Group are produced by ETA, because ETA is also a part of the Swatch Group and specializes in manufacturing movements. The main factor that determines the price of a watch is the movement and the material. But if any watch dared to advertise its mirror material and movement model as its main selling points, this watch must be of low quality.

Finally, the appearance is that the benevolent sees the benevolent and the wise sees the wisdom, maybe the first is the honey and the second is the arsenic, but you can get a glimpse of the aesthetic level of others from the appearance of the watch you wear.


2. Mechanical watch or quartz watch?

Under normal circumstances, mechanical watches are more expensive than quartz watches, but this does not mean that mechanical watches must perform better than quartz watches.

The reason why mechanical watches are more expensive than quartz watches is that mechanical watches require precise manual adjustment of the time during the production process. Quartz watches are generally assembled on automatic production lines. In addition, it is generally believed that mechanical watches are more expensive than quartz watches. Longer service life.

Mechanical watch or quartz watch? Depending on the individual, the two styles of watches have their own advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage of the quartz watch is that it has high timing accuracy, easy to wear, and is easy to make into a thin, small, and stylish. The watch core of a mechanical watch is more technological, but the thickness of the case is generally larger.
