As watch is a necessary instrument for timing precisely, the quality of watch has never been over-emphasized. When choosing a watch in shop, you’d better pay much attention to the quality of the watch. But how can we know which one is worth the high price? Here are some advices.
First of all, check the appearance of the watch. Make sure that the watch case does not have any obvious scorings and the angles or edges are totally equal. Besides, the rear cover and top cover should be together tightly. The glass of watch should be very clear without any flaws. Through the glass, the gauge needles and degree scales should be correct and distinct.
Second, check the sensitivity of the watch. There are mainly two ways to judge the sensitivity. One way is to shake the watch without spring in order to see what happens. If the second hand stops walking in a short time, it means that the watch possesses the high sensitivity. Otherwise, the watch has a low sensitivity and may have a bug. Another way is to turn the handle of the stop watch slowly to observe the second hand. If the second hand begins to walk as soon as the handle is turned, certainly the watch has been equipped with a high sensitivity.
Third, you should try to turn the needles so that you can check whether the needles are too closed to each other. Too much friction is not a good thing.
