What do you consider when Buying your first watch!?

What to consider when buying your first watch? 

A lot of people come to us buying their first expensive watch. The first watch means a lot. It may well be the result of your endeavors. So, do your homework before you go for your first watch. Here are some factors you should consider.
1.      The brand
Your first watch needs not be fancy. Why? Because it will serve as your upgrade weapon in the future. You would like your watch to retain its value after a year or two when you want to exchange it for a new watch. Watches from big brands like Rolex can do that. Rolex watches retain their value very well. It is also a well-known brand. You do not want your watch to leave other guessing what brand it is after you have spent so much on it. Picking the right brand is therefore very important. Of course, you can argue that you would like to get a watch you like from a less famous brand. It is very much a personal choice. But if you are new to the watch world and have limited budget, do go for a Rolex.


2.      The price
As your first watch, you do not want it to be too cheap. Similarly, you cannot expect to get the most expensive one as you are on a budget. Take Rolex as an example, some people would go for a Daytona as their first watch. It is the most famous steel model. Surely there is no problem in such a choice. However, some of us might not have that kind of budget and getting to the top without looking at the scenery along the way is no fun. So, choosing those Rolex models at around 45k to 68k would be more reasonable.



3.      The model

Sports watches are in vogue right now. The question is, do they really suit you? Whether a watch suits you really depends on how you dress. If you wear a suit every day, a sports model may not be the best for you. You may then want to look for some dressy models. The point is, you do not want to buy your first watch and put it in the box for longer time than it being on your wrist, right?

Tudor Black Bay Bronze Ref.79250BM

Tudor Black Bay Bronze – an affordable bronze watch made by Tudor. 

Tudor introduced this Black Bay Bronze at Baselworld 2016. At first looks, we were all stunned by how beautiful the watch looks.
The new Black Bay Bronze is 43mm wide and has a bronze case which in time will develop unique patina according to personal using habits. It has a brown bezel and dial with 3,6,9 numerals on it. The watch comes with two straps, one is the distressed calf strap and the other one is a nato nylon strap.
The watch features an in-house Tudor movement, meaning that Tudor no longer use modified movements. The list price? It is 28,500 HKD.
Currently there are a few request on this watch but I am sure AD will not likely let go to us at List price.
So if you want to get this watch, I am afraid you nee to pay for a premium,
Gray Dealer price is HK$34,000 to HK$36,000.
