I may be poking a beehive but here it goes. I am looking for general information regarding watch styles. Most collectors prefer manuals to automatics, automatics to quartz, quartz to digital. I have found out about dress, sporty, diver, military types of watches but cannot make the difference.
Dress watches general tend to have light colored dials, leather or metal band. If leather, one is supposed to match it with the belt and shoe color. No information on sporty watches.
Diver types are easier to identify; but are black dials preferable to light ones in this type of class? Larger the better? What makes a military watch other than the resistance to weather conditions?
To make it short, is there any FAQ on wristwatch styles? I apologize if there is indeed a FAQ here; I just could not find it. The above statements are just what I gathered on reading some of the posts here.
Thank you for your time,
