1.Crystal - This is the glass that protects and covers the dial of the watch

2.Face - The face of the watch is the dial where you will find the hour, minutes and seconds hands.

3.Clasp - This is part of the watch band or bracelet that locks the watch and keeps it in place on your wrist

4.Case - This is the metal case where your watch is enclosed

5.Bezel -This is the rim that holds the crystal of your watch

6.Bracelet - You will find metal links that are attached to each other to the case of the watch

7.Band - The band of the watch is made of rubber, faux leather, polyurethane, cloth arm strap and leather – it is attached to the case of the watch and fits around your wrist.

When you are buying your watch, check the craftsmanship of the above components and their quality. The quality of these elements will determine the price of the timepiece.

Difference between a $5 and $500 watch

1.The $5 watch is produced on a mass scale whereas the $500 is meticulously designed then manufactured.

2.Cheap watches will have quartz movements whereas expensive ones will have both quartz or mechanical movements
