The mechanical movement: It is the movement of the arm that drives the mechanism and ensures the proper functioning of the watch. The movement can be manual and involves raising the crown by hand. It can also be automatic, reassembly is done by simply moving the wrist. The life of this movement is excellent, but to offer you this type of accessory, it will require a much larger investment.

What size?

As for a garment, choosing a watch implies taking into account your morphology. If you have a rather thin wrist, in this case, it is better to turn to a delicate watch and not too thick. Conversely, if you have a strong wrist, opt for a larger watch. On the other hand, the horns of the timepiece will have to marry the shapes of your arm.


Which casing?

If it is essential to choose an accessory that corresponds to your morphology, the aesthetics of the case depends solely on your preferences and your style of dress. Our advice is very simple: indulge yourself, with a watch that will bring a touch of sophistication or additional originality to your outfit.

A waterproof watch?

Most watches are waterproof, but that does not necessarily mean they can be totally submerged. Indeed, this information simply tells you that the accessory can withstand a few drops of water without deteriorating.
