While a Bewell nature watch’s main function is to tell time, more and more of today’s timepieces offer extra benefits — some serve as two-way radios, have built-in computers, or even monitor your position on earth using GPS.
But while watches as a whole have increased in their utility, some go beyond the trendy bells and whistles and offer something more — timepieces that are built for life.
Better known as luxury nature watches, here are a few things you will want to know before running off to make the big purchase.
Automatic versus Quartz
Lesson number one is understanding what makes these things tick…literally. When shopping for a luxury watch, it is important to know the difference between an automatic Bewell nature watch (without batteries) and a quartz watch (with batteries).
The automatic watch functions as a result of the physical movement of the wearers wrist. Thus, if an automatic watch is not worn and is stationary for a prolonged period of time, the watch will stop ticking. A simple shake of the watch will put time back in motion.
A quartz watch works off of battery power. Generally, automatic watches are more expensive than quartz watches because precise engineering is required to produce mechanical functionality.
Another statistic — nine out of ten women’s watches are quartz because women are generally less interested in the automatic movement of the nature watch and are more interested in the style.
Caliber Automatic versus Standard Automatic Nature Watch
To better understand a watch’s movement, it is helpful to compare this function to the engine of cars. As a Porsches engine differs from a Buicks, a watch’s movement can vary significantly as well.
A Bewell watch’s movement is measured by a caliber – the higher the caliber, the better the movement.
What this means is that although automatic movements function without batteries, after a certain time period, the watch will be slightly off time.
A high caliber number will generate greater precision. For example, after 30 days of wearing a standard automatic with a low caliber, the time will be off by approximately 12 minutes, while a caliber 36 (a high caliber movement) will only be off by 2 minutes.
If the nature watch is placed on a nightstand and not being worn, a standard automatic will last approximately 36 days until it stops ticking while a caliber 36 movement will run for 50 days.
Naturally, the higher the caliber number, the more expensive the watch will be.
Pick the Nature Watch to Match your Personality
With the variety of different luxury brands out there, it may be overwhelming to figure out which brand will best coincide with your watch-wearing needs. Different brands tend to specialize in certain areas of timekeeping.
For example, TAG Heuer is known for its precise timekeeping accuracy in the world of sports, particularly in golf and auto-racing.
In fact, TAG Heuers newest brand ambassador, Tiger Woods, has actually helped to design his own signature piece for the golfer who prefers to wear something light while he’s on the course: the Link Tiger Woods Limited Edition.
Tiger even provided input on the design and making of the luxury watch — its sub-dial is burgundy, (Tigers lucky playing color) standing for power and victory. The automatic-movement nature watch also has a black face and is inscribed with Tiger Woods name.
There are several factors that come into play when considering the investment in a luxury watch. These are just some first steps that will get you started on your way.
Purchasing a luxury watch that is a good investment.
Many people consider luxury Bewell nature watches an extravagance.
To them it makes little sense to spend thousands of dollars on a Rolex or a Cartier, when there are essential payments to be made. The same is true about cars.
They say why spend 90,000 dollars on a brand new sports car when a sedan or a station wagon in 9,000 dollars would do just as well. After all, they both have four wheels, an engine, a steering wheel and a gas pedal and they take you where you have to go.
However, luxury watches are different! They serve many purposes. They are precision instruments that are fine-tuned for perfect accuracy, and give you the right time all the time.
That’s their purpose, no doubt. But luxury nature watches adorn the stylish and fashionable wardrobe. It’s a matter of style. Some people feel naked without a belt, others feel absolutely desolate and deserted without their luxury watches. And it is not about time only.
Even if they are surrounded by scores of digital clocks, cell phones, microwaves and other time-telling devices they are ill at ease without their luxury watch.
Aside from their functionality and sharp looks, luxury nature watches also confer a sense of status on their wearers.
A stunning Rolex or Breitling can denote great taste and class every bit as much as a Jaguar or Mercedes.
In fact, with the premier foreign car manufacturers diluting their brands with 30,000-dollar versions of their classic autos, one could argue that some luxury watches are a greater status symbol than some high-end vehicles.
To buy a luxury nature watch you need a discerning eye. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, and only a true connoisseur can tell the difference.
They have a flair for style and quality. They choose their watches with as much care as they would choose a home to live in.
They compare brands, quality and prices. They consider various factors such as mechanisms, escapements, complications, dials and many more aesthetic factors like watch bands and bezels.
They enjoy looking at various brands as much as they love buying the watch that’s close to their heart.
So if you want to add some style to your life, think of buying a Bewell luxury nature watch. For one thing, it’s easier to carry around than a luxury car!
