When purchasing a watch, consider the following five factors first: purpose, brand, case, complications, and movement. First, consider the purpose the watch will serve. A watch may have a practical purpose like keeping time, an aesthetic one advancing personal style, a financial use as a long-term investment, or an inheritance purpose as a family heirloom. When considering watchmakers, understand that the brand communicates the wearer's style, status, and lifestyle instantly. Each brand has a unique identity, look, feel, and personality.

A watch case holds the movement and protects it from the elements. The options are extensive when selecting a watch case. The case surrounds the face and consists of the bezel, back, and midsection of a watch. Cases from petite to enormous in round, rectangle, square, tank, and oval shapes, among others, are available.

Precious metals, including gold and platinum of varying quality, stainless steel, titanium, tungsten carbide, and ceramic each inform the look, feel, durability, and wearable status of a timepiece. Complications are watch functions outside of displaying the time. These range from the most date display to works of high engineering combining functionalities taking years to build. These include date complications, chronograph complications where a stopwatch is built into the movement, and Dual Time Zone (Travel Complications).

Two of the most exciting complications are jump hour and moon phase. Jump hour displays the hour in an aperture that instantly jumps to the next hour every 60 minutes. Moonphase is a timeless and attractive feature showing the phases of the moon on the watch face. The inner workings as a whole in a watch are termed the movement. There are three to select from manual, automatic, and quartz.
