Watches can be made from many different materials and it can vary by brand, style, range, collection, you name it. It all depends on your budget and preference as to what kind of watch to choose. Many watches tend to be made from Stainless Steel, as this is a material that is durable which makes it perfect to be worn on a daily basis. Stainless Steel is also corrosion resistant, meaning it is less likely to tarnish than other metals, again making this the perfect material to make a watch that is to be worn on a daily basis.

Other types of metals can be used to make the watch, such as titanium. Titanium tends to be used on watches that are in a higher price range to those made with Stainless Steel. Titanium is also a non corrosive material, meaning that titanium made watches are less likely to cause a rash, tarnish and are naturally durable.

Many men’s watches can feature plating, whether this is in white, rose or yellow gold. This is something that primarily features on more high end or luxury watches, however is can be mimicked on fashion watches and other brands that are seen as a slightly cheaper option with a PVD plating.

In some cases, a watch can actually be made from ceramics. Again, like both Titanium and Stainless Steel, Ceramics are also very durable materials and scratch resistant. However, when a watch is made from Ceramics, it tends to blended with Stainless Steel to create to make the watch even tougher.

It would be wrong to not include the different types of glass used. There are the choices of sapphire glass, crystal glass, mineral glass, regular glass and plastic. Sapphire glass is the most clear and durable of all glasses; Crystal glass is three times as strong as normal glass. Mineral glass is the most popular choice of glass for a watch, by coating it, it can be made twice as strong and any scratches can be easily polished out. Regular glass is not suitable for watches as the glass will easily scratch.
