  28. I look for clear, big numbers because as much as I like the marked time spots I like seeing numbers more

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

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

  32. 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.

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

  34. I look for a big face too, so I don’t have to pull out my glasses to tell the time!

  35. I like for a face with medium size numbers and with the date on it. Also, the wristband has to be well made as my husband can be a little rough on them.

  36. I want my watch to have regular numbers and the date and be big enough to read without squinting.

  37. Big numbers my eyes are getting worse as I age and hate having to remove my glasses to see small things

  38. I like something unique….like the watches that flash designs and colors. I also HAVE to have the date on the watch.

  39. I look for uniqueness when purchasing a wristwatch. Typically – semi-skeleton [inter-workings] of a watch, calendar [day & date], Silver in color, leather band

  40. I look for a watch that looks sexy on my husband… he collects pocket watches and I love a watch that looks sexy in his hand as he takes it out of his pocket.

  41. I look for clock spring based analog technology in lieu of digital, as I prefer nonelectric items over those that depend on batteries.

  42. The Hubs generally wants a big, easy to read face and he wants a watch for his birthday later this month. This will be perfect!!!

  43. First I look for a watch band that fits me correctly plus I love watch faces that have character, not just numbers but something that is attractive to look at with a specific detail in the face itself, I like nice back ground color and if the face has awesome back grown color that allows me to quickly glance for the time and I can see it clearly then I am happy with it

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway

  44. I want a battery that can be changed without going to a jeweler.

  47. I lok for comfort it has to fit just right. The I look for style , I want to look it to good too.

    2) Accuracy
    3) Not too large

  50. 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.

  51. 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.
