Are you thinking of buying a new watch? The choices of different brands and styles can actually make the task quite gargantuan. You should always try and pick a watch based on the materials and quality of workmanship, coupled with the overall appearance. Most people only even look for the latter, to their detriment. This article will serve as a little guide on how to choose a watch that not only looks good, but is made well and performs well. The seiko sna411 chronograph will be analysed to show the good parts and the bad.
We’ll start off with the easy part, appearance. There’s not too much to think about here other than do you love the look and will it go well with what you want it to? Some watches aren’t very versatile and only suit certain occasions, try and avoid these watches. The seiko sna411 does a fairly good job of being a watch that can be dress up and down for whatever purpose.
The movement of a watch is the most important part of it. After all, having a beautiful watch that can’t tell the time is, fairly useless right? So the seiko sna411 uses Japanese-Quartz movement. This isn’t quite as highly regarded as Swiss-Quartz, but is still very accurate and should run to within a minute accuracy per year. Try to avoid watches that have mechanical movement, as these are tiresome to wind constantly and can be quite inaccurate.
You should also consider the material that eh dial is made out of. Sapphire dials have a fantastic reputation for resisting scratches and are the best choice for a watch dial. The seiko sna411 actually doesn’t use sapphire, it uses hardlex crystal; which is a fusion of plastic and crystal. While not as impressive as sapphire, it is still good quality.
Thinking about watches in this way might be a little draining, but it’s important if you want to get a good watch. Have a browse around watch forums and read reviews of potential watches before you buy as they will help you decide also.
