The perfect style

If you are purchasing an expensive watch then it might be a good idea to tell your loved one of your intentions so that they can view the available watches and have input into the one they would like; watches can be quite personal items and if they are especially picky then they might want to choose for themselves. If you are adamant that the gift is to remain a surprise then there are still things you can do to help get an idea of what style they like; you could even suggest that you are buying a watch for someone else and ask his opinion on what he thinks is a nice watch. You should be able to tell the style of watch he would like form his personality and other tastes; for example if he is particularly sporty or adventurous then it would probably be best to go for a watch that has multiple features and a hard outer shell to protect it. If your partner or loved one is a fan of stylish design then you should start the search by checking out some of the designer watch ranges that are sold in many jeweller; these can provide great value for money.

The final touch

Most watches will come in a plush box that will showcase the watch to its full potential. These boxes can be easily wrapped and will make a very attractive present. Many jewellers, online and on the high street, offer a wrapping service for you and will finish off the gift with a bow and some ribbon for extra decoration. Before purchasing a watch you should ensure you understand the terms and conditions of the warranty in order to make sure you are entitled to a replacement if the watch is faulty. Some watches feature several dials that also show you what the time is in other countries around the world; other watches might include an alarm that you can set to sound at a certain time of the day or the night; many people use this to wake them in the mornings.

Waterproof watches

Many men’s watches are waterproof, although not all; in order to check whether a watch is waterproof you will need to check the individual specifications or consult the company that manufactured it. Watches that are waterproof can often still work even down to very extreme depths. If a watch is not waterproof then even accidentally wearing it in the shower or dropping it in the sink will usually be enough to render it unusable. Divers wear special waterproof designs that can let them go down to great depths without being affected by the water or the pressure. Many members of the Royal Navy wear specialist watches to help them go about their day to day duties.
