What do you need to consider when buying a watch as a gift?

With Black Friday and Christmas just around the corner here are some things to think about when buying a watch as a gift.


Wristwatch Budget – set it, stick to it and get the best deal for it.

The budget is the starting point when buying any gift. What do you have to spend? In the case of watches, this can range from as little as a few dollars up to hundreds of thousands and more. This all depends on what you are looking for and what your buying capacity is. With any budget the key is getting the best bang for your buck. Review our previous blog ‘how to choose the best watch under $300’ to see four key elements to take into consideration when buying a watch. Once set stick to your budget and look outside the big brand names and department stores for the best deals. Often, you’ll find better quality watches with better specifications in smaller boutique brands.

At SEITIES watches we believe we offer great bang for your buck. The day/date limited edition watch is fitted with a swiss quartz movement. It is housed in a 316L stainless steel case.

Wristwatch Use – who’s it for, what’s it for?

Who is the watch for? Is it a male or female? In many cases this doesn’t really matter today. Whether a watch is for a male or a female is less defined. We commonly see women wearing large divers or pilot watches. We also often see men wearing ultra slim fine detail watches. The watch a person wears is more commonly than not, down to their personal preference and their taste, not their gender.

When will the recipient wear the watch? What is the intended use of the watch? These are crucial elements to consider when buying a watch was a gift. Identify if the watch intended for everyday use, special occasions or specific activities. If its everyday then a key element to think about is durability. If it’s for special occasions, then think about style and elegance. However, if for a specific activity think about the requirements for that activity, such as water resistance, the need for a stop watch or timer. Even with today’s smart watch market, the ability to stay connected choice of apps.
