So many watches. So little time.

Just browsing online or through our member-submitted everyday carry photos, it's easy to see you've got a ton of options. And by now you've probably got a handle on what style of watches you prefer.

But narrowing it down to the perfect watch for your everyday carry isn't a walk in the park. With all the specs and watch nerd terms you might come across in your search, there's a lot of moving parts involved (literally).

In this installment of Carry Smarter, we'll explain everything you need to know about watches to make sure you're getting your hard-earned dollar's worth when you invest in your next timepiece. Don't worry, we're not getting into overly technical nuances of gaskets and springs here.

By the end of the guide, you'll know what those buzz words in the watch world really mean, so you can find the right watch for your everyday carry.

Before we begin, there's a few questions to ask yourself to help guide your next purchase…

Right Place, Right Timepiece
Do you want a watch you'll never have to take off your wrist, or separate options for work and play? Decide what's going to be the main use for your new timepiece first. Then move down the spec list, keeping your needs in mind. A minimalist watch for wearing around the office is going to be much different from a rugged diver that's ready for anything.
