Many a time you think WoW! that’s the perfect watch! Then when you see the next one you say OMG this one’s even better. The more brands you see the more that you realise there are so many watches out there. Ultimately this is of no practical use to you unless you are able to actually decide on buying one and are satisfied with it.

With so many watches being bought each year, tens of millions of people regret their choice shortly afterwards. Through our research and analysis we have concluded that one of the main reasons why so many people regret their purchase is down to the lack of proper research.

How many Watch Movements are there?

A watch wouldn’t be a watch without the movement. Let’s look at the types of watch movements available. Currently there are 5/6 types of watch movement available including: 

Hand-wound mechanical movement watches

The traditional hand wound mechanical watch continues to fascinate watch enthusiasts and lovers of engineering alike. It is as if a working universe was recreated within a watch case. A mechanical watch which is neither self-winding nor electrically driven is called a manual winding watch.

We have many great value for money examples of bestselling hand wound mechanical watches to choose from like for example from the Orient watch review as well as other top watch brands listed our top 6 manual winding mechanical watches under $5000 below

Nowadays the mechanical is less popular than quartz movement watches. However if you want to know how to start a watch collection then it would be better to buy mechanical watches.

Mechanical watches are hand-wound so you would have to do that manually on a daily basis. As you wind the watch up the mechanical movement coils up energy in the mainspring which is then released and regulated by a sophisticated system of gears.

The process mentioned above is done with such precision that the change of hours, minutes and seconds are syncronized with the regulation of energy from the watch movement.

Mechanical watches on average lose around about an hour annually and are sensitive to amongst others, changes in temperature, position and magnetism.

Good examples can be found with Skeleton watches which are popular and we have some helpful skeleton watch reviews to help you find a nice model.

We also have a post featuring nice investment watches reviews where prices are on a different level going into the thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands as well as into the multi-millions.

Automatic watches

An automatic watch is a self-wound mechanical movement watch. The first automatic movement was invented in the 18th century and used for pocket watches. A version suitable for wristwatches was first developed in the 1920s. Automatic watches are mechanical watches with either a self-winding or electrically driven automatic mechanism (eccentric weight) added on. The eccentric weight is finely balanced on a pivot and turns with every movement of the hand. This movement of the weight is able to rewind the mainspring thereby making the whole process automatic.

There are millions of examples these days to chose automatic watches from. We have featured our favorite top 6 automatic watches under $500 presented in the table below. In addition there are a number of automatic watches exhibiting exceptional value for money which can be found in our latest and Best Seiko Watch Reviews worth looking into.

Quartz watches

Quartz watches are driven by a battery or solar-powered quartz oscillator circuit. So basically they are electronic watches, as a quartz crystal and battery replace the various springs and gear mechanisms of traditional mechanical watches. The quartz watch movement works when a quartz crystal is given an electric current from the battery causing it to vibrate at exactly 32768 Hz. This frequency is equal to 215 cycles per second. The precision and reliability of electronic watches are regulated by this frequency giving them amazing accuracy, only losing up to a handful of seconds annually. Since the 1980s, more quartz watches than mechanical ones have been marketed.

Kinetic watches

Kinetic watches are a recent innovation where both quartz movement and automatic self-winding technology are incorporated into a single movement. This use of both technologies in combination helps to achieve both highly accurate time and the recharging of the battery so that the same battery can be used for the lifetime of the watch. This is done by adding an eccentric weight to a tiny generator which in turn replenishes the battery.

We have featured below our top 6 picks for kinetic watches under $1000 and can further recommend you take a look at our latest and best Seiko Watch Reviews to find some more worthy examples to consider when making your purchasing decision.

Solar powered watches

Solar powered watches are another modern innovation classified as a sub-section of quartz movement watches. These timepieces also combine quartz movement technology with automatic self-winding technology. The biggest difference with kinetic movement watches is that solar powered watches do not feed off hand movements to re-charge the battery. Rather solar powered watches use light energy to produce energy which is then utilized to re-charge the watch battery. This is achieved by using the watch face to house a photovoltaic cell (technology that funnels sunlight) to the inverter whose job is to convert it to electrical energy which is in turn fed to the battery thereby re-charging it in the process.

Atomic watch

An atomic watch is updated by radio broadcast on a daily basis so that it will be able to keep the most accurate time on earth. An atomic watch would never be required to have its date or time manually adjusted as the low frequency radio signal received each night will enable it to be kept in perfect synchronization with the US atomic clock in Colorado via various intermediary stations throught the world. If an atomic watch was kept out of radio frequency broadcast range then the watch would continue to run as a normal solar watch or kinetic powered watch. 

We would highly recommend taking a closer look at our best Casio GShock watches reviews for some further examples of some suitable watches

Check out our latest new guide for the best atomic watches under your budget for some inspiring ideas accross all prices categories.

Top Watch Style Types

Earlier on we discussed the various types of movement and display types. Now lets add on to the techi and engineering side of things with the beauty and design elements of various watch styles. We will talk about the major points to remember whenever buying those types of watches and also the pitfalls to avoid in each watch genre.

Altimeter (ABC) Watches

An altimeter is an altitude meter (Barometer) is an instrument used to measure the altitude of a reference object above a fixed level. Altimeter or ABC (Altitude Barometer Compass) watches are handy tools to let you know how much you have climbed up or down from your reference point by measuring the change in atmospheric pressure.

Altimeters are not scientific instruments rather gauges designed to give the best estimate of the current altitude. When they are properly calibrated on a day with good weather, they should prove to be very accurate. However where there are changing weather conditions there will also be some variation in accuracy. The main point being that it is of paramount importance to know the reference altitude to get it right.

The best way to know your exact altitude anywhere on Earth is by using Google Earth. Most altimeter watches display both the absolute air pressure as well as the adjusted for sea-level pressure readings so that you won’t be confused when you see the readings on TV or in the newspaper which are adjusted for sea-level.

The usefulness of an altimeter watch varies from satisfying your general curiosity of a leisurely hike, to tracking your vertical ascent/descent on a mountain bike ride / skiing adventure, to a matter of life and death situation for an alpinist trying to reach his high altitude peak destination within a specific time frame.

Best to get one with a mineral glass to avoid scratching. A nice rubber watch band suits all types of activities and won’t get in your way. No point spending extra to get computer downloadable data unless you are really into data analysis as it is not really practical.

Aviator (Pilot) watches

Aviator watches are also known as pilot watches and have much in common with military (field) watches in that they must be extremely tough, durable and easily readable in poor visibility environments. The exception being that aviator watches are unique in that they must have two hour hands and a “whiz wheel”.

One hour hand usually corressponds to a 12 hour watch face whereas the second one with a 24 hour watch face. This enables the pilot to track real time with respect to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). This is necessary as the pilot’s aircraft travels between time zones and the time to destination needs to be accurately worked out.

The whiz wheel is used by pilots to aid their calculations and can be useful if you know whart you are doing. In addition pilot watches more often than not incorporate a chronograph which is a precise stopwatch.

Summarizing pilot watches are highly durable precision timepieces with dual timezone measuring functionality with a whiz wheel and often incorporating a chronograph. Many wear well with formal and casual wear as well as complimenting the sporting look. It is worth taking a closer look at our Best Torgoen Watch Reviews or you can check out our latest and very best Aviator (Pilot) Watches under your budget guide for a complete overview of all price categories.

Casual watches

Casual watches can be known as being simple easy going types of watches, being not fancy or glitzy, rather something you can wear day-in day-out. The main differentiating features would be colours, materials used and styling. So for a casual watch there is not need to use precious metals and semi-precious stones as the watch is meant to be used for hanging around at whatever casual everyday type event.

Casual watches come in all shapes and sizes although round are most common. Colours all over the spectrum are an option to personalise to your taste and preferences. Although working environments where smart casual or business casual would require fitting colours rather than shoutingout loud neon colours.

Summarizing we can say that many kinds of watch styles can come under “casual” but very few casual watches can fit into other watch styles. So no one can stop you from wearing your favourite piolt watch to the office or any other social events like family barbecues. Bottom line is casual watches are simple not too fancy and something you can wear to every day type occasions. In addition to considering the above mentioned top 6 best casual watches under $ 200 we would also recommend taking a second look at the Skagen watches reviews for further examples to consider when selecting the most suitable casual watch for your needs.

Collectable Watches

Watches like anything else depreciate in value over time. Very few objects actually appreciate in value over time, as time will take its toll on everything. However there are a few watches that have stood the test of time and continue to appreciate over time. No doubt now and then a few other watches may well be able to join this very select few in the celebration of time. One such notable example are some Swatch watches which have become highly collectable.

Those watches that have gone from glory to glory would include the following in our opinion: Omega Speedmaster, Rolex Submariner,  Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso, Casio G-Shock, Grand Seiko Spring Drive, MB&F Horological Machine, Kari Voutilainen, A. Lange & Sohn Datogragh Up/Down, Breguet Type XXI, Sinn 757 S

Best to avoid swimming and adventure sports like mountain biking with your collectable watches as sea water and vibrations would not do any good to the movements at all. BEst store your watches in cool dry environments when not wearing them for extended periods. Also service them regularly every 5 to 10 years.

If you want to get the best top tip to invest in a particular brand take a look at our Hublot Watch Review for compelling reasions why getting into this top watch brand early may well prove to be the best watch collectors investment watch buying opportunity of a lifetime.

Chronograph watches

Chronograph watches are simply said a timepiece which also has the functionality to be used as a stopwatch as well as those of a standard wrist watch. The basic chronograph has an independent sweep second hand, easy to stop, start and reset. The more complicated chronograph watch typically has dials which keep track of independent hands for seconds, minutes and hours.

Easy to use you just press the start/stop button on the side of the watch to start or stop the stopwatch. A “flyback” chronogragh will reset the dial reading to zero ready for the next measurement.

Many modern chronographs use moveable bezels as tachymeters for quick computations of speed or distance. Chronograph watches are usually round and come with various colours, finishes and straps.

Designer watches

Our Guide could not be complete without mentioning the world of designer watches made by the successful fahions houses like Chanel, Cartier, Boss, Diesel, Gucci, Dior, Versace, Hermes, Armani, Guess, Hilfiger and the likes thereof. We are right now at this moment developing a comprehensive review for all designer watches with a special emphasis to locate the most affordable and value for money brands and watch styles.

Essentially no matter how luxury designer watches get by using the most bespoke materials and semi-precious stones, they are still by definition fashion watches, allbeiit highly priced luxury fashion watches known primarily for their glitz and glamour showbiz appeal rather than for the quality of their movements and survivability in a range of environments.

Fashion watches are primarily bought for their sex appeal and perceived to be more attractive alter persona of the wearer achieved by relentlessly re-inforcing and affirmaing advertising imagery. Often portraying a highly sophisticated and stylish look and personality of the brand wearer engrossed in the attention to the smallest of details of styling and imagery without necessarily being able to connect the dots of the bigger picture in life. 

Dive watches

Diver watches have to be of course water resistant. A decent dive watch according to ISO standard 6425 should have water resistance at least of 100m. Also most important for a dive watch is the need to have outstanding accuracy and reliability especially when you are deep down under with a limited amount of oxygen supply for obvious reasons.

Probably one of the most iconic dive watches of all time might well be the Rolex Submariner which would set a budding watch collector back around $8K. No need to spend so much as there are many excellent quality dive watches available for much lower prices.

Dress watches

Dress watches are normally very tasteful and classy timepieces which every man and woman would do well with. Wearable at all types of formal occasions like weddings, funerals, business meetings, balls and various other classy events.

Normally dress watches are an accessory whose main function is to fit the formal attire rather than precision timekeeping functions. Additionally dress watches are not meant to attract too much attention like for example clingy fashion watches would. A nice leather watch band would compliment a truly classy dress watch. Watch faces for dress watches are normally round although square and oval faces can occasionally be found.

Eco friendly watches

The interest in Eco friendly watches has come about by people becoming more aware of our environment over recent years and making efforts to include more environmentally sustainable products in their daily lives.

Whether achieved by following traceable sourcing guidelines, creating wrist watches from upcycled products or using eco-friendly woods, it appears that the world of fine horology has become more focused on ensuring that their work is more greener than ever.

The best way to ensure you’re wearing a  sustainable watch is to purchase ‘recycled’ one – or in other words, a vintage timepiece. Moreover they only gain in value over time, and unlike most ‘off the rack’ timepieces, they not only tell the time but have the in-built potential to also really tell an interesting story.

Fashion watches

Fashion watches watch styles can incorporate many styles as fashion in itself is a broad term. Some would say fashion watches would be those watches produced by fashion labels like Dior, Gucci, Armani, Versace, Kate Spade etc. where watches and any other accessory would compliment fashion apparel for the overall look created by the fashion designer.

Others would say that fashion watches are happy go lucky fashion accessories whose purpose is moreso to add a little glitz and glamour rather than to tell precise time. Some are even adorned with jewels and precious metals to look outstanding. Others prefer to have an expensive and shiny looking timepiece on their wrists without spending a small fortune in the process.
