Watch shopping can be overwhelming, that's why we broke down the top 5 things to look for.
MATIC timepieces are made with the best of the best, inside and out.
Here's what to look for:
GOOD: Good watches are built with stainless steel which usually carries some weight. When you hold it you should be able to feel the quality.
BAD: Check the specs! Make sure it's made with stainless instead of alloy metals.
GOOD: There are two types of glass common in the watch industry, premium glass is made from Sapphire. There are a few types of concave and convex glass, but any Sapphire is good. Sapphire is the second hardest substance, right behind the Diamond.
BAD: The other common glass is Mineral glass. Mineral glass is soft and pliable so it is resistant to shattering, this soft substance also makes it highly prone to scratching.
GOOD: The movement is the heart of the watch. Without a good movement, you might as well be wearing a bracelet. Look for Swiss movements, Japanese movements, or ETA movements. Be careful with mechanical movements, they are less reliable and harder to repair.
BAD: Chinese movements.
GOOD: Look for a natural grain leather from Italy. Full slabs of leather will mould to your wrist for a custom fit.
BAD: PU (fake) leather and straps that have a leather shell stuffed with foam or rubber. You can look inside the holes on the strap to see if there are hidden layers.
GOOD: Anything 5 ATM or greater will be able to handle the pool and shower at very least. Go above 10 ATM if you plan on snorkeling and diving.
BAD: No resistance or 3ATM can fog up inside the glass from even a small amount of water, don't wash your hands!
