Questions to Ask Yourself When Buying Men’s Luxury Watches
It is fair to say that there are some simply stunning luxury watches on the market from the likes of Tag Heuer, Hublot and Breitling but this excellence comes at a price – in terms of the high price tags of these luxury watch brands – so it is imperative to ask yourself the right questions before committing to the purchase of a new designer timepiece.Breitling watches, U-Boat watches, Bell & Ross watches – what do they all have in common?
First and foremost they are all brands of luxury watches and they have price tags to match the excellence of their design and exceptional quality. If you want one of these incredible timepieces to adorn your wrist, you may well have to consider spending in excess of £5000 – so, it is crucial to know all the facts prior to pressing ahead with a purchase of a luxury watch. Some of the key questions you should be asking yourself include:
Q: Watch brand is right for you?
A: This is the million dollar question (quite literally if you wanted to buy a Hublot Black Caviar watch – which boasts this price tag) and you should conduct a little research into the different brands of luxury watches there are on the market and see which fit in most successfully with your own personal style. Some of the most popular watches at present include the Limited Edition Tag Heuer F1 Grande Date Gulf, Bell & Ross BR WW1 92 Heritage watch and the Tissot PRC 200.
Q: When do you plan on wearing your watch?
A: Generally speaking, if you’re willing to spend large sums of money on a designer watch, the chances are that you’ll want to wear it all the time but the question is valid insomuch as it will have a bearing on the type of brands that you are looking to purchase. For example many people will purchase what is known as a ‘power’ watch which has a lot of status attached to it as they feel it will add gravitas to themselves in their day to day working life – brands such as Tag Heuer, Bremont and Baume & Mercier watches certainly fall into this category.
Q: Bells and whistles or understated sophistication?
A: One of the best things about having so many different brands of men’s luxury watches on the market is the fact that there is a watch out there to suit every taste and budget. You can find some highly extravagant and luxurious looking watches such as those from Maurice Lacroix and Hublot. For more of an understated designer watch, Bell and Ross have an excellent collection of WWI inspired timepieces that really do look fantastic.
So, if you’ve been enviously eying Breitling watches online or seen a breath-taking Hublot on the high street, make sure you ask yourself the questions above first – and then you will have the piece of mind that you are buying the perfect designer timepiece for you.
