How to buy the perfect Watch

mcc —  April 21, 2016

A Watch is a great present and a fashion statement in its own right. Recently it has become fashionable to wear oversized styles and Rose Gold has been the material of choice. However we are sure the the trends are set to change very soon.

How to buy the perfect Watch

We love this beautiful two tone watch from Tissot which uses silver along with white for a modern and clean look.

But, besides fashion what other factor should you think about when you are buying a watch?

How to buy the perfect Watch

  • Consider the material. We love this watch because it looks pretty but we also know that it is made from durable and tough materials. Stainless steel is one of the most popular materials to be used in watch manufacture. It is attractive and resists both tarnish and discoloration. Titanium is another great material which has all the durability of stainless steel but is much lighter.
  • Consider what type of band suits you. Metal bands are great but cannot be adjusted unless you take them along to your jeweller. A leather band is great as it can be adjusted as needed but, unlike a metal band, you will need to replace this as the years wear on. If your strap is made from a synthetic material be aware that it may cause you strap to give you a sweaty wrist.
  • Classic or sports? A Sports watch has extra features and durability built into the design to make sure that it is going to be able to be worn outdoors. Sports watches can have all sorts of high tech features which include more mechanisms and sometimes that means that there is more to go wrong.
  • Thinking of a Luxury Watch? Luxury watches can be a great investment and are a good heirloom which can be handed down through the years. A fine gold watch will always look good, or consider bands which tend to hold their value well such as a Rolex. Rolexes can even be resold in the future at Jewellers such as Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.
  • Think outside the box. If you want a timepiece that will cause conversation then think of something unique like a pocket watch.



When buying a watch there are lots of things which are worth considering. Budget will obviously be one big factor but visiting a Jewellers like Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena you will get the chance to browse all their makes and models, try them on and benefit from the expertise of their staff. Robert Adair Jewellers, Ballymena is located on Mill Street.



Fathers Day Gifts are hard to choose but we at Jewellery Latest know that a Watch is better than another year of socks and aftershave. Your dad could enjoy a new watch and he could treasure it for life. 

A Nato Strap adds an edge to the Tissot Quickster

Trendsetters will be delighted to hear that the Tissot Quickster has received a cool new update. It is now available on a NATO strap, a practical and stylish accessory that can effortlessly withstand extreme circumstances while still looking good. The style of the strap owes its name to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. The canvas straps have an illustrious history – used by British pilots and the army in the Second World War, they were toughened up by replacing the typical spring bar attachments with fixed bars fused into place. This meant that only one piece of fabric was needed for the strap, so if one of the bars should break under the pressure of combat, the watch would stay on the wrist as one side would remain attached to the case. This easy functionality adds a new dynamic to the Tissot Quickster, fortifying the popular piece and adding a very desirable aesthetic that’s casual, tough and trendy. A straightforward design uses a hardy fabric and stainless steel buckle fro no-frills look, while a range of colours means wearers can choose the colour that best reflects their personality.

Jewellery Latest know that Valentines Day is a very important date on a jewellers calendar. In 2013 consumers in America spent over $4 Billion on jewellery for a Valentines day gift for their loved one and we guess that this year will be no exception.

Diamonds, gold and silver are the perfect present for a lady on Valentines Day but what about your man? Jewellers have great ranges designed for men which would be the perfect unexpected gift for your husband or boyfriend this year.

Consider getting your man a ring. Avoid anything that looks too like a wedding band and opt for something modern and durable like Titanium. Titanium rings are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, hypo allergenic and really strong. Perfect for any man who works with his hands or loves the outdoors.

If he wouldn’t wear a ring then look out for a gorgeous watch. Men’s watches come in all forms from classic with leather straps, to sports watches. We suggest you go for something classic from a brand like Tissot, which he can wear every day or keep for a special occasion.


Or for the man who has everything consider searching out something a little more unique. A Rolex watch would be the ultimate gift but at a very high price. Did you know that many jewellers offer pre-owned Rolex watches which are sold with the box and certification at a more reasonable price? A Pre-owned Rolex is defiantly worth looking into for you loved one. We at Jewellery Latest are sure that it beats the usual aftershave and sock combination this Valentines Day.

Jewellery Latest love these Rose Gold watches from Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena. They tell us that chunky rose gold accessories are in fashion and have these great examples to choose from.


Robert Adair Jewellers have a great selection from leading brands, starting from under £100.00. Call in with Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena today to get a rose gold watch for someone special, or even as a treat for yourself!

Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena can perform pressure tests on Water resistant watches to ensure that they are still performing well. For a small extra charge Robert Adair Jewellers can test watches after they have had batteries replaced or after any other work has been done. Most good quality watches are water resistant but through time and certainly after a battery change the seals can be compromised, so after a new battery has been fitted it is important that the case is resealed and pressure tested with the correct equipment.  This is vitally important if the watch is used in water on a regular basis

Robert Adair Jewellers are one of the few Jewellers who have a watchmaker on the premises with the knowledge and equipment to pressure test and reseal your water resistant watch.


Pressure testing is a complex process which takes many steps and can only be carried out by a trained professional. Your watch is sealed into a chamber where air is pumped in, and the watch is monitored as the air pressure rises.

If you have invested in a Rolex or other quality watch which offers water resistance then be sure to use Robert Adair Jewellers for any work or battery changes that you may need. This will ensure that your watch is performing in the way it should and that your water resistance hasn’t been compromised by any work that has been done.

Bring your watch to Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena to ensure that it is pressure tested and performing as well as the day you bought it.
