⇒ If the watch which you are going purchase for everyday use and cheaper ones ($20-$50), then go for such a watch for which you yourself can change batteries. This would save a lot of dollars for getting battery replaced.
⇒ Purchase a watch with standard sized strap (10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 22 mm) as they are easily available everywhere. If the strap is too wide like 35 mm, then such straps are hard to get and are much too expensive.
⇒ For the average person, a Seiko, G-Shock, Swatch, or Casio are all great values.
⇒ Stay within price range. Watches are easy to lose, and your investment might just go out the window.
⇒ Beware of counterfeit brand name watches. If it seems too cheap to be real, it probably is a fake.
⇒ Many reputed Swiss Made watches should be bought from their official dealers. Buying Swiss watches online may be risky.
⇒ Never try to open a watch yourself. Always take it to a certified jeweler.
⇒ Don’t buy an analog watch without markings unless you are able to read it.
