As the saying goes, the poor play cars and the rich play tables, and there is some truth in this. But in fact, diaosi also often have the need to master the time, so the first thing to be clear is why I buy a watch.
Common watches can be divided into mechanical watches, quartz watches, electronic watches. The electronic watch is basically Casio alone, the rest of the brands such as Garmin Garmin, Songto, are functional watches, with a large number of timing outside the function, so not included in the scope of this article, only mentioned in the back of the strap material will say a little.
The following quartz watch, quartz watch is basically the Japanese brand of the world, Casio, Citiecity, Seiko these brands, also sell watches also sell movement, basically occupied the mainstream market, style, shape and the following to focus on mechanical watches. swatch series is also the main force of quartz watch battlefield, but the style is basically the main fashion watch, girls prefer, men's style is not brilliant. In addition, in the hearts of watch players, quartz watches can only be called timing tools, so it is not recommended for men to buy multiple quartz watches. One of the advantages of quartz watches is quasi, very accurate, so the standing quartz watch should be with date and week function, all-steel structure, steel strip priority. This seiko light drive. Because of this, if a quartz watch is not allowed, it is basically no different from garbage. I consider that their own quartz watch wearing occasions are not many, every time wear quartz watch, is the need to pay close attention to the specific time occasions, so simplified, choose this ultra-thin type of Citroine light kinetic energy.
Just as I mentioned in the Seiko light Drive post before, this style of watch is very versatile, any collocation and occasion is not wrong to wear, so in any case, you should also prepare a piece.
If you do not like this type, you will prepare a quartz watch, if you like this style, you can buy an automatic mechanical, daily wear.
Let's start talking about mechanical watches, and first talk about several factors that affect the price of mechanical watches.
To some extent, the origin is more important than the brand. For example, if an Indian brand is advertised well, it is believed that not many people will be interested in it. On the contrary, a genuine German watch, without much introduction, as long as you hold the real thing in your hand, will soon make people feel worth it. Of course, the most valuable origin is Switzerland, and the rest of France and Italy also have big names, but they can not fight against Switzerland. Japanese and domestic? Those are still at the "certainty" stage.
Brand ranking online a lot, small difference, nothing more than Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe, Jaegeria, Breguet and other top, Rolex, Katia, Panerai, Omega, the second, Tudor, Longines, Hauer, radar again, Hamilton (this everyone is very familiar with), Meidu, Tissot, Seiko, Citron City at the end and so on. For the brand I am familiar with, there is a sentence behind the evaluation, we can look back.
It goes without saying. It's easy to see. As soon as diamonds, platinum, gold, etc. are put on the table, the price will naturally go up. However, it should be noted that the mirror material is generally common for sapphire and mineral glass, and there were plastic materials in the past, and now it is rare. It is better to say that sapphire is better than mineral glass, but in fact, the difference is not big, and the feeling of deliberately opening the gap is a little.
Generally speaking, Swiss watches are ETA movements, and almost all Swatch mechanical watches are produced by ETA, because ETA is also a part of Swatch and specializes in the manufacture of movements. The most common 2824-2 is all-inclusive, thousands to tens of thousands of tables can be seen. However, it should be noted that the same 2824 will also show different values because of later grinding and reprocessing, and there is no wrong to buy and sell, remember this.
However, to remind everyone that the material and movement are the main factors that affect the price, but if any watch dares to use the mirror material and movement model as the main selling point to promote, this watch must not be high grade.
The appearance of the table is a matter of opinion, a honey B arsenic, do not comment casually on other people's table beautiful or ugly, this thing personal like good. But the watch must be something to spy on the other person's aesthetic taste in water. If five or three rough people with a piece of the world of Portuguese, I believe it will be a very artistic heart of the guy. On the contrary, if a polite man wears a Rolex black king, he must have a coquettish heart under the quiet surface.
So knowing watches can be a social tool.
Rolex: The king of watches, once and for all is the consensus in the circle, and people who play watches will eventually fall into the arms of Rolex. Because it is noble, reliable, accurate travel time, excellent quality, in the mechanical watch a few years to oil maintenance has become a consensus today, Rolex still has a lot of decades without any maintenance as no problem examples exist. And there are so many Rolex models that you can always find one that suits you. Do not belittle it because the nouveau riche like big gold law, one big gold law is not all Rolex, two, there are many taste people also like Rolex, three, who deliberately said Rolex is not good, basically because they can not HOLD it. Rely on their own power to compete with Swatch, sales force beat all over the world invincible hand, this is Rolex. Take a look at this yacht celebrity, do you still feel like a nouveau riche? (Note: Golden Daytona was mentioned in the Bourne Ultimatum kit.)
Tudor: Rolex's second-line brand, the quality can almost be equal to Rolex, but because of the use of ETA movement (Rolex is all its own production of movement), so the price advantage is obvious. Some early models used Rolex crown straps directly. In vastly underrated brands.
Omega: 007's choice, Swatch's main profit point, our first lady carries his watch. Reliable quality, low profile. We all know that it is a good watch, but wearing it will not make people feel very surprised, and Rolex is completely different. (Xiaobian note: Seahorse series of ocean universe.)
Longines: a gentleman in the table, especially suitable for scholars and scribes to wear.
Tissot: It sells a lot, and it doesn't feel expensive. Suitable for cadres below department level. (Xiaobian note: recommended multiple force lock.)
Seagull: The conscience of the domestic brand, can make a tourbillon is also a manifestation of technical ability. But its own level is still limited, the daily movement error is large, for the support of domestic goods, if you have enough to consider one
