Watches are accessories that are extremely beloved by men not only because they are useful gadgets to tell the time, but also since they can tell so much about someone's personality and style. Plus, the fact that they come in virtually endless options, makes timepieces the perfect gift for your dad.In light of so many renowned watchmakers and different styles to choose from, finding the perfect one for your dad may seem like a challenging endeavor. But no worries, this guide will point out the main aspects to look for when finding the right watch for your dad so you know what to look for.
What are luxury watches and how to identify them
Luxury watches are defined as being handmade by expert watchmakers using the top quality materials that match their incomparable quality. These types of watches also generally have complex internal movements and many unique features, such as tourbillons, chronographs, and moon phase indicators.
Timepiece mechanism: Manual, automatic or quartz?
Before you decide the right watch for you, it's important to understand the basic difference between watches in terms of their movements. Knowing the different types of motions can help you make an informed decision in terms of defining what kind of watch will be most useful to you.
Mechanical watches rely on a series of wheels, gears, springs, and other mechanisms to function in order to keep time. In manual watches, the user needs to manually wind up the spring for the movement to occur. These watches are the traditional, classic choice but they work mostly manually.
In an automatic watch mechanism, in contrast, the watch winds the rotor automatically using the energy it accumulated from the user's wrist movements. This process makes automatic watches work even if you take them off at night. Basically, you don’t need to worry about making them work.
Quartz watches, on the other hand, substitute intricate cogs and gears for small quartz crystals in which the battery provides an integrated energy circuit. The way quartz watches work is with crystal vibrations that accompany wrist movements, making it a very sustainable way of timekeeping.
Automatic and quartz watches work incredibly accurately. Manuals work well too, but they come with what, for some, would be the disadvantage of manually adjusting them. In the end, choosing between a manual, mechanical or quartz watch comes down to your own (or your dad’s) personal preference and style.
Choose the model: strap or bracelet watches
Your watch can feature straps or bracelets. Straps watches are especially useful if you like leather and other materials such as nylon that are more comfortable to the touch. One of the advantages of a strap watch is that it is able to match several outfits and add a lot of versatility to your look.
Conversely, bracelet watches are known for their luxury, mainly made of metals such as titanium and stainless steel. They can be made of precious metals and come in various different colors perfectly matched with amazing, different hues that all share one thing in common; the amazing ability to upgrade any man’s look.
Defining the case metal and color
If your dad fancies precious metals, timepieces are available in white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. You can never go wrong with these as they are classic and literally timeless and come in endless designs, featuring different details and materials as well.

This is the case with classy and extra resistant bracelets made of titanium, a well as the extremely popular stainless steel bracelet watches.
