What Does Your Luxury Watch Say About You?

For some of you reading this article, the first thing that you are thinking is “What’s the big deal with watches?” Gasp! I will tell you what the big deal is.

While there are luxury watches for women, most of the most expensive and complicated watches were created for men. Women have plenty of accessories to adorn themselves with everyday. Whether it is a purse, earrings, shoes, etc, women are able to use these items to display their personality. Men do not typically have these options. That is why men are so drawn to luxury watches. Watches provide men with an outlet to express themselves. Even to someone who doesn’t know anything about watches, when they see someone wearing one, they automatically assume the wearer is conscientious and dependable. Why would he be wearing a watch if time weren’t important to him? There you go. You have already made a great first impression.

However, for those of us who are familiar with each individual brand, we notice the specific watch you are wearing. We know what he brand represents and the time, effort, and research that went into purchasing that specific watch. We understand that your watch does more than just tell you the time. It tells you that you value finely crafted pieces that took a long time to design and create. We understand that, although this watch cost a significant amount of money, to you, it is priceless.

But more importantly than that is what the watch says about your preferences and what you find important. If a man is wearing a Rolex watch, he most likely values tradition and appreciates classic pieces. It says that he won’t give into trends, but would rather spend his money on something that is going to last for a long time.

People are always asking, “What are the best luxury watch brands?” Each brand is known for different things and have different histories and reputation. What might be the best watch brand for one person may not be the best for another person. The best watch brand for you depends on your tastes, style, and preferences.
