With an array of watches that range from understated to big and bright the world of luxury watches can seem like an intimidating place. Realizing this, the horological experts of Frank Jewelers have come together to put together a few considerations to keep in mind when shopping for that perfect timepiece!

Consideration #1: Style

For the most part, timepieces can be split up into a few major styles or types. Broadly this includes dress watches, pilot’s watches, divers watches, and driver watches, with every type having its own advantages and disadvantages depending on the wearer’s lifestyle.

For example, if your job or hobbies have outdoors or working with your hands, then a heartier watch, such as a classic diver, driver, or pilot piece (like those pictured below) might be more appropriate for your hands-on lifestyle.

Alternatively, if your lifestyle has you indoors or behind a desk most of the time, then a dress watch is probably more your speed. With the same precision and straightforward style as other timepiece types, dress watches often feature simple faces, streamlined designs, and are meant to complement outfits in the boardroom and without.

Consideration #2: Complications

Further, another important factor to consider is what sort of “complications” you may be interested in. A fancy way to describe the various features of a timepiece, complications can sharply increase the value, and often, the overall usefulness of a watch.

At Frank Jewelers we proudly display a large collection of fashionable watches with an assortment of convenient and accurate complications. These complications can include features as simple as day, date, and second subdials, to additions such as precise chronographs and bold tourbillon designs that bring any timepiece to the next-level of technical sophistication and quality.

Consideration #3: Materials

In addition to style and complications, a third important factor to consider is what materials you might be interested in your timepiece being made of. Today at Frank Jewelers we are proud to offer a large selection of totally authentic timepieces made with popular and long-lasting materials that include 18-karat yellow gold, rose gold, titanium, stainless steel, as well as ultra-tough “ceramic” materials.
