Watches come in many different shapes and styles. Most watches will fall into three main categories; casual, dress, and sport watches.
• Casual Watches: Casual watches are usually made from stainless steel and have a relatively plain face. They are watches that can be worn everyday. They have a durable strap or medium to heavy bracelet band.
• Dress Watches: Dress watches are characterized by a case made from gold or other precious metal. They typically feature a basic, light colored dial with simple hands and a plain bezel with no markings. They usually have an elegant, thin, leather strap.
• Sport Watches: Sport watches are heavier and more durable than dress or casual. They feature a heavier bezel with markings and a bold or complex looking face featuring thicker hands. These watches have a casual type strap that can be a rubber based band, padded leather band with prominent stitching, or a heavy bracelet. Most of these watches are water resistant to at least 50 meters. Sport watches have more functionality than the other types of watches.
