So, you want to buy a luxury watch. You want to have the best quality watch out there and still don’t want to be tricked into buying something expensive that isn’t worth it. So what are the things you should always be aware of before purchasing your first luxury watch?


Okay, maybe money is no object but you should always think about this when buying your first luxury watch. Do you want to spend as little as $500 or as much as $5 million? Make sure to think thoroughly about how much you want to spend on your first investment!


What kind of lifestyle do you have? Are your days spent in an office or is your life filled with non-stop adventures? Make sure not to invest on a very fragile piece that could easily shatter while being on your adventures.


These are the top luxury brands, and they are each known for different qualities. So, which one better fits you?

  • Patek Philippe: This brand is known as one of the most deluxe Swiss watches which are highly valued for the complexity of their mechanical watches.
  • A Lange & Söhne: This brand is based in Glashütte, Germany and they are known for crafting exceptional watches that are unique, unusual masterpieces.
  • Vacheron Constantin: This was created in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron and is associated with the Richemont group. This brand is famous for their elegantly graceful watches.
  • Rolex: Based in Geneva, this is probably the most well-known luxury watch brand with great vintage models and investment value.

Classic or Technological

This one depends on your own personal taste. Do you prefer a more modern watch or an elegant classic analog piece? Each are great, depending on what you are looking for.

Try it On for Size

It could be the best watch in the world but if the size is not right then it won’t be worth it; you want to make sure that it looks and feels perfect. If it’s too bulky it will feel like a weight on your wrist that will distract you from living your life, but if it’s too petite it could look weird and ridiculous.

Make sure that your watch will be comfortable and look amazing on your wrist.
