What To Look For In A Luxury Watch

A buyer's guide to the best timepieces on the market

A question that customers ask on a regular basis is ‘What qualities should I look for in a luxury watch?’ Obviously, this is subjective because all buyers have different preferences and requirements. You should always look at the build quality and where the watch is produced. For example, Swiss timepieces are normally considered a higher standard than their Japanese or Chinese counterparts. It is also important to carefully select the materials used. Certainly precious metals like platinum and gold are very desirable.

However, recently some contemporary watchmakers have opted for carbon composites and lightweight alloy metals. Finally, pay particular attention to the caliber powering the watch. A high-end watch should have a refined mechanical manual or automatic movement. Here are a few exclusive timepieces that will appeal to the discerning client.
