Guide to Buying a Watch Online

If you are a first-time watch buyer, then there are a few things you should know about purchasing a watch from an online watch store.

Watches are available in any number of styles, sizes, types, and designs.

A watch consists of several pieces: band, case, bezel, crystal, crown, and dial. The watch band secures the watch to your wrist.  The bezel is the outside of the face of the watch.  The crystal is the clear piece over the dial. The dial is the hands and base underneath them. The crown is the knob used to wind the watch.

Most watches are either water resistant, and some are waterproof.  Water resistant means the watch is sealed and can be submerged under water usually up to 100 meters and will continue to work.  Dive watches are water resistant.  Waterproof means the watch can be exposed to water or moisture for short periods of time and will continue to work. However, the watch will not work if it is submerged under water.

To find the right watch for your wrist, measure the circumference of your wrist.  For men, if your wrist is between six and seven inches, then the case diameter should be 38 to 42 mm wide.  If your wrist is large, then choose a case that is 44 to 46 mm wide.  For women, the standard watch dial is 26 to 29 mm.

Many people wear watches for comfort, and some wear a watch as a statement piece.  The important thing is to put some thought into the style and features of the watch.

No matter your reason for wearing a watch the internet makes buying from an online watch store easy.  Just sit back and browse through the online stores to find the perfect watch for you.
