Wind Chimes, the Gift of Music

Ever since childhood, I’ve been a musical person. At the age of seven, I started taking piano lessons. When I was a teenager, I began singing solos at community events. Not surprisingly, I adore wind chimes. Every time the wind blows, these beautiful music makers spring into action. Their soothing, melodious, and high pitched sound calms and refreshes me. I am amazed at the amount of eclectic wind chimes available for sale at various retailers. One can enjoy the music of pig, cat, or even seashell themed wind chimes. If you know someone who enjoys natural harmonies, wind chimes make a perfect gift. On this blog, you will discover how to buy the right set of wind chimes for your loved one. Enjoy!

A Guide To Buying The Perfect Watch

Tyler Morgan

Even the best-dressed individual with a wardrobe filled with business professional and business casual attire can get tripped up when it comes to choosing a watch. Watches are complicated and expensive. Not to mention the sheer inventory of choices to consider. How does a person even start to go about searching for the perfect watch?

Where to Start

You should start by taking a look at both your wardrobe and your budget. You want something that matches, as well as something you can afford. Next, ask yourself these questions:

  • Where and when will you wear the watch?
  • What is the watch being used for (work, playing sports, going out)?
  • Do you mind high tech or are you old fashioned?
  • Just how much money are you willing to spend?

Answering these questions will help narrow the options you have to consider.

Types of Watches

Once you've figured out your budget and the situations where you will be wearing your new watch, you need to think about the different types of watches. For example, do you want an analog or digital watch?

Analog Watch: An analog watch features a face that has an hour and minute hand. This type of watch is considered to be the more formal or classic option. It is very traditional and the first thing that comes to mind when someone is talking about a watch. It is an ideal choice for a business meeting, date, or formal event.

Digital Watch: A digital watch features an LED or LCD face that displays the time in numeric form. This is a very casual watch that lacks a professional appeal.

You also have the option of getting a watch that features both digital and analog features. These are ideal for work and most daily routines. They are, however, not the best choice for a formal event.

Power Source

Do you have any idea how you want your watch to be powered? You have your choice of a digital watch, a quartz watch, or a mechanical watch.

Digital Watch: A digital watch is powered using a small watch battery. You will be able to buy a replacement watch battery at any store with an electronics department.

Quartz Watch: This is an analog watch that utilizes an electrified quartz crystal as a power source. This type of watch keeps the most accurate time.

Mechanical Watch: A mechanical watch is a very classic, old fashioned watch. It is perfect for someone who wants a watch equipped with gears and springs. These watches are known to get behind and need to be manually set at least once a year.

Naturally, the list of features to consider goes on and on. Figuring out the type of watch you are interested in and the power source you prefer is a great way to zone in on a specific collection of watches for you to choose from.
