OK, we know it is that time of year again: Black Friday. Hopefully, you have already been giving a lot of thought to the gifts you will be buying for your loved ones. We would like to remind you that nothing is as timeless as a timepiece. Giving a gift of time — something that is glanced at every day on the wrist — shows you care about how they spend their time and how they look while doing what they do. In reality, a watch is a statement of taste, interests and personality.
So, if you are considering a watch purchase, you may want to take a few things into consideration when looking.
First and foremost, you should set your budget and stick to it. There are timepieces out there for all types of people and all types of budgets.
Next, consider the person or persons you are buying for. What are their hobbies and interests? Are they active outdoors people? Lovers of art? Do they run, hike, swim or participate in a sport? By being familiar with what the person's interests are, you can steer your watch choices to sporty or business, to casual or chic, to high-tech materials or shimmering gold.
Additionally, considering the person's career and age can help you determine whether you want to look at something cutting edge in style and design, or more classic and elegant. Teens and young adults most likely want a blend of trendy and functional, while those already in the height of their career may want something fun or weekend wear, or something a little more daring for work wear.
If the person you are buying for lives in a warm climate, look to bracelet watches instead of leather straps that can get sticky on the wrist in hot, humid weather. In cold climates, leather is a warm and comfortable alternative. Of course, a sporty rubber strap straddles all climates and is great for active, outdoor wear.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you need to love the choice you make. Nothing says more when giving a gift than the excitement you convey about the selection you have made. Don't worry, though, if you are unsure, we are here to help you and guide you through the selection of the perfect watch. Stop in on Black Friday or any other time.
