  98. Angela Cisco says:

  99. Steve says:

    I look for elegance, but simplicity. I’m not big on a ton of dials, nor a gigantic grandfather clock size face.

    My work watch is a cheap $15 timex, but I break them all the time (work in construction).

    My every day watch is a Skagen:

    My dress watch is a Movado Museum. Simple, yet classy. It’s pretty much the perfect watch design for me.

    I realize the huge dial watches are in fashion right now, but I like the subdued look. Both of the non timex watches I wear are wafer thin with a face about the size of a quarter. I barely know they are there, other than the 15 times an hour I glance at my watch to see what time it is.

  100. Don D says:

    I look for a face that is easy to read and style as well. Use to be only style, but as I age and now need glasses…I want a watch that I can see when I don’t have glasses on.

    Anything with Indiglo and lots of beepy sounds. Or barring that, a fancy pocket watch like the one above.

  102. Angela Winesburg says:

    I look that its easy to read the time on! Thanks

  103. Michelle Tucker says:

    I look for something w/larger numbers. I want to be able to see it!

  104. Paula Hafner says:

    I have small wrist so I look for an adjustable wristband. I also look for a dainty face, easy-to-read face, durability, and it must look fashionable.

  105. randall robison says:

    I look for color and face design. thanks

  106. Francis says:

    I look for a dial that I can see, not only at night, but also in bright sunlight.

  107. Hoenig, E H says:

    2) Accuracy
    3) Not too large
    4) Styling

  155. James says:

    The Orient Epoch is a great prize; nice work guys! There are a few things I look for and consider when purchasing a new wristwatch. While of course, not the most important element, price is certainly a major consideration. Purchasing a timepiece is usually a moderate investment, and to maximize the return on that investment, I have to consider all the opportunity costs associated with the purchase to ensure I am making the most of my purchasing power and budget. Another consideration is the wristwatch’s accuracy and overall brand reputation. When investing in a timepiece, I need to be assured that it will perform precisely and under pressure. The final–and arguably most important–consideration I make when purchasing a wristwatch is its aesthetic appeal. While a single timepiece is unlikely paired perfectly with all outfits and occasions, the ideal wristwatch is versatile enough to pair cleanly with a classic black suit, boast a large enough bezel to be seen under a french cuff when I remove my suit jacket, and be able to dress down enough to compliment jeans and a tweed jacket or pullover sweater.

  156. Zachary E. says:

    A wristwatch is all about balance. It has to balance function vs. aesthetic: can it be read easily? How does the readability affect its look? It also has to balance design, pulled between the inherently classic look of a wristwatch with modern styles and trends. With everything balanced, a wristwatch should acknowledge the classic tradition from where it came, but put a bold, modern spin on it.

  157. Thomas T says:

    I typically two things in a watch.
    1) Will I still like it in 10 years.
    2) Readability- can I read it quickly?
