Before you buy a watch, it is very necessary to know some little knowledge about watch buying. First of all, you need to be clear about the purpose of your purchase, because mechanical watches and quartz watches each have their own characteristics and are suitable for different people.

Mechanical watches keep time through purely physical mechanical winding, transmission and escapement, while quartz watches rely on electricity to supply energy. From the product side, mechanical watches compared to quartz watches timing error to be larger, but the movement has an extremely long life; quartz watch timing is accurate, low cost, cost-effective is very good, but a talk about the value of taste often has nothing to do with it.TUDOR Royal M28323-0001 Gear running, which is the exclusive beauty of mechanical watches.

About the quartz watch seconds against not allowed to scale problem, this is a common phenomenon in the quartz watch. Since the stepping motor of the quartz watch works in an intermittent motion, the movement embodied in the second hand is intermittent (it feels like a walk and a stop), which does not affect the accuracy of the watch's timekeeping. In addition to professional timepieces, whether the second hand is aligned with the scale or not is not the only criterion for determining whether a quartz watch is qualified or not, because there is no provision in the national watch standard that the second hand of a quartz watch must be aligned with the scale. So, whether the second hand is aligned with the scale has nothing to do with the quality, it just means that the brand company is trying to install the second hand as close as possible to the center line of the scale, of course, the overlap is the best.

In terms of choosing the material of the watch, the tungsten steel band has the highest hardness, is not easy to wear and tear, and is also more expensive, but it is more brittle and afraid of violent impact. The hardness of steel belt is slightly lower, but high toughness.TUDOR Black Bay 39 M79660-0001 The belt's will age and become brittle and hard when it encounters sweat or chemicals for a long time. The small ring on the belt for fixing is also easy to break and deform. However, the belt is softer, lighter, more comfortable to wear, and less likely to hurt the skin or clothing.

The more functions a watch has, the better it is not necessarily. This concern is similar to that of buying a cell phone. Some cell phones are very expensive and have many functions, but when you buy one, you may not be able to use it. The design of a watch with more functions is relatively complicated, but it does not mean that the one with more functions is the best, and many overpriced watches tend to have the simplest design. Watches with fewer functions are easier to maintain and have a lower failure rate. It should be said that what suits you is the best, measuring a good watch also depends on its movement, material, workmanship and design style.

Regarding the life span of a watch, quartz watches generally have a life span of 10 to 15 years. For mechanical watches, the life span of a general grade watch is about 20-30 years if it is maintained on time. For high-grade ones, it is more than 50 years. Many high-grade mechanical pocket watches, more than 100 years can still run normally. The above is the case of normal use. If you wear the watch to take a bath, or the length of the strap is not suitable, the use of poor environment, serious impact, etc. will make the watch easy to damage and shorten the service life.

Will gold-plated watches fade? The answer is yes. Gold-plated watches on the gold-plated layer is mostly 14K gold, this kind of gold in addition to containing 58.5% of pure gold also contains a certain amount of silver and some volatile industrial emissions in the air after the reaction on the surface will produce a layer of black silver sulfide film so that the gold-plated watches to lose the luster of the gold-colored wear gold-plated watches to avoid contact with chemical substances and exhaust and often keep the gold-plated watches dry and clean in addition to sweat will also be corrosive to gold-plated watches.TUDOR Glamour Double Date M57103-0005 Will corrode the gold-plated watch another PVD plating watch PVD vacuum ion plating using physical processes to achieve material discoloration into gold color appearance color like gold-plated watch but does not contain real gold this plating will also fall off with time diamonds on the diamond-set watch is real? Diamonds on watches with diamonds are generally artificial diamonds, the value of diamonds is generally determined by the quality and size of the cutting process, and so on, and the cheap ones are also more than 1,000 yuan due to the high cost, so even the high-end watches are seldom inlaid with real diamonds diamond-set watches will be accompanied by a GIA certificate of authentication!

On the quartz watch battery life according to the different models of the watch battery life of 1 year to 4 years or so quartz watch with other functions such as timing light alarm will consume additional power a bit of the dial with a lot of small hands or dials with large hands long will consume additional power in general to replace the new battery can be used for a year and a half is the normal use of the watch time is too short should be cleaned and maintained!

On the mechanical watch can be adjusted to one second of the problem of mechanical watch error mainly from the balance wheel hairspring vibration frequency stability to determine due to the watch in the wearing process there are a lot of external and internal factors interfere such as wearing environment watch polishing degree temperature watch orientation bumps and so on will cause the watch vibration frequency instability maintenance master repair are try to minimize the maintenance there is no way to ensure that a second of the difference!

In short, before buying a watch to understand these small knowledge can help you better choose the right watch for their own to improve the satisfaction of the purchase!
