Purchasing a luxury watch that is a good investment

Luxury watches might well seem like an extravagance to many people. Who can rightly explain spending thousands and thousands of dollars on a brand new Rolex or Cartier when there are mortgage payments, car payments, credit card bills, and student loans to pay off? You could make a similar argument, of course, about a car. Why should you fritter away 90,000 dollars on a brand new sports car when a 9000-dollar sedan or station wagon would be absolutely adequate? They both have four wheels, an engine, a steering wheel, and a gas pedal and they get you where you need to go, all for a lot less money!

Purchasing a luxury watch serves many purposes. Not only they are precision instruments known for accuracy thus giving the correct time but also make a fashion statement on your behalf. These watches are a must for any luxurious and fashionable wardrobe. The connoisseur of luxury watches may have many time-telling devices like digital clocks, cell phones and microwaves but they would not do without their luxury watch. This use of a luxury watch as a fashion accessory is the chief reason for the rise in popularity of the same.

Aside from their functionality and sharp looks, luxury watches also confer a sense of status on their wearers. A stunning Rolex or Breitling can denote great taste and class every bit as much as a Jaguar or Mercedes. In fact, with the premier foreign car manufacturers diluting their brands with 30,000-dollar versions of their classic autos, one could argue that some luxury watches are a greater status symbol than some high-end vehicles.

Buying a luxury watch requires a discriminating eye in addition to a flair for style and quality. True watch enthusiasts choose their timepieces with the care and attention they’d spend when buying a home they shop around, compare brands, quality and prices. There are mechanisms and escapements to analyze, complications, and dials, and a host of aesthetic factors to consider such as watch bands and bezels. They do not simply buy the first watch they see.

So if you want to add some style to your life, think of buying a luxury watch. For one thing, it’s easier to carry around than a luxury car!
