- Mar 29, 2019-

Watches, also known as wristwatches. A tool worn on the wrist for timing. In social occasions, wearing watches usually means a strong sense of time and a rigorous style of work; people who do not wear watches, or who are eager to ask others about time, always make people scorn, because this often indicates that their sense of time is not strong.




In formal social occasions, watches are often regarded as jewelry, especially for men who usually only wear rings as a kind of jewelry. Some people even emphasize that "watches are not only men's jewelry, but also men's most important jewelry." In western countries, watches, pens and lighters were once called the "three treasures" of adult men, and they are indispensable things for every man.




Like jewelry, the watches people wear in social occasions often reflect their status, identity and wealth. Therefore, most of the watches people wear in interpersonal communication, especially for men, attract people's attention.




Selection of Watches




If you want to wear a watch correctly, you have to know about it and be good at choosing it. When choosing watches, we should pay attention to five aspects: types, shapes, colors, patterns and functions.




(1) Species




According to different standards, watches can be divided into many different types. In social occasions, people usually differentiate their kinds according to price. According to this standard, watches can be divided into luxury watches, high-grade watches, middle-grade watches, low-grade watches and other four categories. In terms of current prices, luxury watches cost more than 10,000 yuan, high-end watches between 2000 and 10,000 yuan, middle-grade watches between 500 and 2,000 yuan, and low-end watches below 500 yuan. When choosing the specific types of watches, we should first do what we can and not do what we can't do. In addition, we should also consider a series of related factors such as personal occupation, occasions of appearance, objects of communication and other clothes chosen at the same time.




(2) Shape




Watch shape is often related to its price and grade. Watches worn on formal occasions should be solemn and conservative in shape, avoiding weirdness and fashion. Men, especially dignitaries and elders, should pay more attention. Novelty and fancy watches are only suitable for girls and children. Generally speaking, round, oval, square, rectangular and diamond watches are suitable for formal occasions because of their solemn and conservative shape and wide application.




(3) Color




Choose watches worn in formal occasions, the color stress should not be complicated and disorderly, generally choose monochrome watches, double-color watches, should not choose three or more colors watches. Whether it is a monochrome watch or a bichrome watch, its color should be clear, noble and elegant. Gold, silver and black watches, that is, watches with gold, silver and black watches on the dial, case and strap, are the best choice. Watches with gold case, strap and milky white dial can also withstand the test of time and will not fall behind in any age.




(4) Patterns




Except for figures, trademarks, factory names and brands, there is no need for any other pattern to appear on the watch that has no effect. Choose watches for formal occasions, especially with this in mind. If the designs on the watch are strange and varied, it is not only unfavorable to use, but also likely to attract jokes.




(5) Function




Timing is the most important function of a watch. Therefore, watches used in formal occasions, whether pointer, jump-type or time-reporting, should have this function, and should be accurate to the time, minutes, and seconds is better. Watches that are only accurate and up to date are obviously not up to standard. Some additional functions, such as temperature, humidity, wind speed, direction, blood pressure, walking speed and so on, can be dispensable, and it is better to do nothing. In a word, the function of watch should be less and more precise, and it should have practical value.
