5 tips on how to buy a quality watch

3 min read

If you are looking for a watch, you may have noticed that the prices of watches vary a lot. On the one hand there are cheap fashion watches and on the other hand there are collector watches with 6 digit price tags. And there is a lot in between. Are you looking for a reliable watch and want to learn what a high quality watch needs? Then read on quickly.

1. The watch glass
The watch glass is the transparent covering over the dial. A high-quality watch has at least a hard watch glass with a sapphire coating. With sapphire, the glass remains scratch-free and clear after frequent use. Soft mineral glass and crystal glass is the choice for an average, inexpensive watch.

2. The timepiece
Watches can have quartz or a certified mechanical movement. The difference in short: quartz watches are watches with a battery and a mechanical watch must be wound manually. The biggest advantage of a quartz watch is that it requires fewer moving parts and makes the watch more accurate and affordable.
Swiss, Japanese and German timepieces have the best reputation, whether they are automatic or quartz movements. They lead the industry in innovation. Lato Lifestyle uses the Japanese Miyota movement, because this brand has proven itself over time. Miyota is one of the most widely used quartz movements in the world and is known for being reliable and highly accurate.
Luxury watches can contain extra functions, so-called 'complications'. The first Lato Lifestyle’s collection has, as the name (Chrono) suggests: a chronograph. This chronograph has an extra clock to record the elapsed seconds and another clock to record the elapsed minutes. Modern chronographs have two buttons around the crown; a button to start and stop the chronograph and a button to reset it. Lato Lifestyle’s first timepiece also includes a date complication. This makes it easy to keep track of the date. All watches are delivered in a luxury leather watch box including manual.

3. Stainless Steel
If you're looking for a watch that you know won't rust and change color, you need to know what material the watch's case is made of. The case of a good watch is made of stainless steel. Stainless steel is stainless steel. The better watch brands use 316L stainless steel, which has a higher purity content. Also, a PVD coating is necessary to preserve the color. All Lato Lifestyle watches have a PVD coating and are made of 316L stainless steel to ensure that the customer gets the best.

4. Water resistance
A less good waterproof watch can cause damage to your watch in the short term. That is why Lato Lifestyle recommends choosing a watch with a water resistance of at least 5 ATM. This protects your watch from most daily contact with water, such as: hand washing, showering and rain. 3 ATM watches are often cheaper and offer no guarantee for water resistance, for example when taking a shower. All watches in this webshop have a water resistance of at least 5 ATM.

5. High price does not equal high quality
Before purchasing a new timepiece, it is wise to look at the details of a watch. Also, a quality watch should feel like something valuable. The components and parts that make up a watch are extremely complex and take up a lot of space and weight. When you wear it, it should feel like a real watch and not a toy. Ultimately, the price should not be leading, a more expensive watch does not automatically mean that it is made of high quality.

We hope that the above tips have helped you during your search for a new watch. Thank you for reading.
