While there are no right or wrong ways of looking at watches, there are a few aspects you should consider before picking a new watch.
One size does not fit all when it comes to watches.
The proportion of the watch to your wrist and hand is one of the first aspects to consider when buying a watch.
If your watch is too big, it will look overwhelming; if it is too small, it will not look proportional. The right size should wrap your wrist comfortably without sliding around or digging into your skin.
A watch with a 16mm lug width is a great place to start because it falls in the middle. It will neither be too small nor too wide.
Once you’ve decided that 16mm may be the right size for you, you must next look at style.

For outdoor enthusiasts and the physically active, pick a watch that can keep up with challenges. You need something functional and sturdy for your preferred activities.
Rubber and NATO watch bands let you move as much as you want without worrying whether your watch will snap off.
A 16mm NATO strap suits activities that require you to move a lot. A 16mm NATO strap secures your watch on your wrist while you focus on your activity.
If you spend more time up in the air or deep in the ocean than on the ground, a pilot watch or a diver watch is perfect. These can withstand extreme conditions.
A watch for flying often has a leather watch strap, while a metal watch band is good for a diver watch. The material the watch is made of is important, especially if it will be submerged in water. Leather watch bands don’t go well with liquids and moisture.
For the minimalist type, a dress watch might suit you.
Dress watches have clean designs and muted color palettes. They’re simple yet sleek, and a leather watch strap completes that sharp look.
