Questions to ask before buying a watch for your child

Is it the right time?

When exactly is the right time to buy your young munchkin a watch? According to, children begin to understand the concept of time at around four or five years old. This is usually when young children start to use calendars and clocks in their classrooms. 

However, while children are starting to understand what a second, minute and hour is, they won’t learn to read an analog clock until seven or eight years old. Getting them a watch earlier can kickstart their learning is a good idea.

Digital or analog? 

It’s a fact - digital watches are easier to read than analog ones. But it’s still important for your child to have traditional time-telling skills. Analog watches offer kids a great learning opportunity, as well as helping them with basic mathematical concepts. 

Is it kid-proof?

You don't need us to tell you that kids are rough and tough. This is why they'll need a watch that's just as rough and tough as they are. Look for a water-resistant watch. That way, washing hands, running through sprinklers or spilling drinks won’t be a problem. 

Bonus points for a watch with adjustable and washable straps and a light-up dial. These allow the watch to grow with your child and look amazing for years to come. 

For the kid who’s still learning 

Lorus RRX99EX9

Renowned watch brand, Seiko, wanted to create a range of watches that would complement their other products. So they started Lorus, a brand famous for its high-quality and affordable watches.
