At T. H. Baker we stock every type of watch, from a range of luxury and designer brands from around the world. To help you discover which watch is right for you we're revealing the top types of watches you need to know, from the smartwatch, to the pilot watch, to the chronograph.
Not to be confused with chronographs, Chronometers refer to watches that have been tested at the world famous La Chaux au Fonds institute in Switzerland. This means that the movement inside the watch is of the highest precision standard.
The gadget watch is packed with loads of secondary functions that are perfect for the avid adventurer. Functions might include a stopwatch, thermometer, alarm, and even a tide indicator. While gadget watches are taking more of a backseat due to the rise of smart technology, they tend to be more durable and resistant to shocks.
For the lover of all things vintage, pocket watches pre-date the wristwatch and were carried around in people's pockets. We have a selection of pocket watches by Sekonda and Woodford. You can also find some in our second-hand collection.
With the technological revolution came the rise of the smartwatches. Boasting multiple functions aside from telling the time, the design of the smartwatch keeps evolving. From the first activity trackers, to the connected and hybrid watches by Kronaby, to the latest smart bracelet concept by Sony.
Sports watches tend to be lighter and shaped to suit your wrist in a way that's comfortable during exercise. These watches often have added digital functions such as step counters so you can track your progress.
