3 Key Mistakes to Avoid When Buying New Watches

mistakes to avoid when buying watches

When buying new watches, I notice that my friends often made some key mistakes that prevent them from choosing the right watches for them. I saw that most of them were interested in Japanese watch brands such as Citizen, Seiko, Orient, etc, and that was fine. I love Japanese watches as well. But the problem is, no matter what brand you want to choose from, you should always try to avoid these mistakes.

The first mistake to avoid is to never buy something instantly when you just saw it. My recommendation is to always do some online researches first, read some customer reviews about the watch you want to buy to see how other customers felt about that same model. If you love to buy a Citizen watch for example, then you should try to look for reviews of Citizen watches first before buying.

Another fatal mistake to avoid is buying something that is out of your current financial reach. You know, having a nice watch on your wrist is nice. But what is not nice is to go into debt because of it. Especially when the watch is a luxury one. You can easily go into $10,000 of debt just to bring home an Omega watch. But ask yourself first, is it worth it? No, right? So, just don’t do it.

And finally, there is always more than just one watch brand and watch series that can satisfy your needs. For example, if you love Citizen watches, then I highly recommend you take a look at Seiko and Orient watches as well. Why? It’s because they all offer something similar. And the prices and designs might be just as good. So you don’t have to get stuck with just one option.
