4 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Women's Watches

Watches have been more popular among men forever, but women today seem to enjoy watches as much as men. They like to invest in valuable timepieces. Watches are just as much of a style statement for women as for men. However, since the trend of women's watches has just started to catch pace, there's not much information available to help women buy the right watches. For this reason, they end up making mistakes that sometimes cost them hundreds and thousands of dollars in the name of branded watches.

If you're planning to invest in a fine wristwatch, you should be wary of common mistakes that you must avoid when buying a women's watch.

Let's have a quick walkthrough of common mistakes to avoid when buying ladies' watches.

1. Buying from Non-Trusted Sellers and Dealers

You might be tempted to buy a Tag Heuer watch that's flashing on your newsfeed because it looks oh-so-gorgeous and seems to be priced at a throwaway price. However, this is the biggest mistake that you must not make. Not all sellers and dealers who deal in luxury watches sell genuine ones, especially those offering watches at rates that are too good to be true. Always buy a watch from well-reputed sellers and dealers. It's best to buy from physical

stores or online sellers who have a physical presence in your region so that you know you can go back to them in case there's a problem with the watch you bought.

2. Strap or Bracelet?

Women's watches either have leather or non-metal strap or metal bracelet. Straps give a watch a more casual look, whereas bracelets make the watch look more upscale. One common mistake that most women make when buying a watch is choosing a watch that's not suitable for the style they want to pair the watch with. For example, you want a watch for everyday use, but you get carried away with a watch that has a beautiful gold bracelet. Would you wear a watch with a golden bracelet to a quick coffee date with your best friend? Well, that's exactly what we mean. Make sure you know how you plan on styling the watch, and then choose the right wristwatch for yourself.

3. Wrong Color Selection

Women's watches come in a huge number of choices. You can either choose a watch in a color that pops out or go with more neutral colors like gold, silver, black, or white. Neutral colors go with a greater variety of colors and styles of outfits, whereas specific colors like pink and red go well with outfits of the same color family. It depends on you how you want to use the watch. Don't buy a watch that you won't utilize much!

4. Overlooking Maintenance

Ladies' watches are more prone to scratches and damage. It's because women tend to be more physically active - with house and office work. If you're buying a luxury watch, you should keep in mind that it'll take extra money to keep the watch looking as good as new. If you can't seem to afford the maintenance cost, it's best to invest in a watch that's low maintenance. You might be tempted to buy a gold watch, but scratches are more visible on gold, and you'll have to get your watch frequently polished – which isn't cheap!

Knowing about common mistakes to avoid when buying women's watches will help you not make them. Now that you know, you can go watch shopping more confidently and make the right pick!

    All About Tudor Watches

    Most people don’t know that Tudor watches were founded by the same iconic man that founded Rolex watches. Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law designed the first Rolex in 1905 and were the first to patent waterproof watches. 40 years later, they introduced the Tudor watch. This was designed while maintaining quality and giving attention to detail but at more affordable prices so that more people could buy them. Tudor watches gained popularity as the watch you buy before you can afford a Rolex.

    Between the Tudor and Rolex, the Tudor has experimented with different models and styles, whereas Rolex plays it relatively safe and maintains its classic age-old mechanism and design. It is also believed that the Tudor is the company’s guinea pig to keep testing new features and assess its response in the market. Once a feature is well received, it is then incorporated into the Rolex watch.
