Nowadays, there are many different kinds of watches available on the market. Those can be distinguished by many factors such as their material, shape, color, size, or how it looks like. In this blog post, I will talk about watches weight and why you should care about it when you buy a new watch.
The case of my current daily watch is about 100 grams. Personally, I tend towards heavier watches as I like the “feel” of having a little bit of weight on my wrist. |
Most of the current smart and digital watches weigh on average a little over 100 grams. Most of the people prefer heavy watches because it’s heavier and feels better on the wrist. Typically the heaviest watches weigh about 230 grams on average.
There are many different types of watches that can be worn for different occasions. Watches weight is usually classified into two categories – heavy and light.
A heavy watch is the type of watch worn in office settings and while working outside. It has a sturdy construction and most have leather or metal strap. They also achieve more accurate timekeeping than a light watch because they tend to be more durable.
Light watches are suitable for those who are looking for something less bulky to wear. They are usually made of plastic or rubber with quartz movements, as they don’t need to be repaired as often as heavier watches do, which is why they’re cheaper than heavier ones on the market today.
