This is Why A Watch is One of The Best Gifts You can Give.
A watch is something that we can wear on an everyday basis. It will be our wrist most of the time, so looking at the time could remind us of the person who gifted us that specific timepiece.
People usually gift when theres a big day for somebody that they care about. It could be a graduation, a wedding, a Birthday, anniversaries, or some kind of achievement.
Watches are exclusive gifts. It can hold more emotional value than most other presents. You can wear it every day even after 20 years, and think about why and who the watch was given by. While a shirt most likely won't be remembered after years and years. That is why a watch includes emotions.
Regardless of the style of the timepiece, people who wear watches are seen as reliable and dependable. Seeing a watch on someone's wrist says that the person is punctual and values time. After all, time is money.
But how gifting timepieces has changed over the years?
Young individuals want watches that fills them with pride about what they value in life. These timepieces can accompany them to their next life stage of adulthood.
Gifting overall has changed a lot with time. Teenagers want something that they desire. They want the most trendy watches that they’ve seen on their favorite music artist, football player or on an actor.
Even a friend group can manipulate what they want, it’s called a bandwagon effect. If most of the people in the group have a Seiko watch you will most likely want one as well.
In the past gifting was only about showing kindness towards someone, letting them know we care about them.
Nowadays it’s the same, except we require gifts on occasions. People will even tell you what they want, you just have to buy it.
A watch is personal, It will reflect the personality of an individual. Just like the cars they are driving and the clothes they are wearing
So how do you choose the right watch to gift to someone?
First of all, we got to search for watches that are within the budget.
There are four types of timepieces that we can choose from.
The first one is a mechanical watch that usually has a classic design. These watches do not require batteries just like automatic timepieces. Although all mechanical watches require winding in order for them to work. The winding can be done by using the crown or a winding key in some cases.
The second one is an automatic watch. These timepieces can have an indefinite lifespan, it will only pause when the wearer ceases to wind or move the internal mechanisms of the timepiece.
The third option is a quartz watch. They are battery-powered and the most affordable, that’s why it’s so popular as well. These watches are made in a wide range of styles. The batteries will have to be replaced after every 3 years or so.
And the final option is a smart watch. They can have a lot of functions. These are also battery-powered and needs to be re-charged after a few days depending on the model. They have a modern design and are very popular, especially for teenagers.
After we decided the type of watch we will go with then we need to consider a person's taste.
If you are buying a watch for someone you most likely already know the person, and what he likes. If they are a sporty person you can buy them a sports watch. Or if they have a more elegant taste you can buy them a classic watch.
