The luxury that a true timepiece provides is unparalleled. It is an enhancement to ones day while also serving as a powerful metaphor for life. A nice watch is considered a time piece when it begins to symbolize something greater than just a watch. It relates to the finite amount of time we have and stands as an encouragement to make the most out of every moment and live in the present moment.
Many brands understand this need and therefor are known to create ultra luxurious time pieces. Some of these brands include Rolex, Hublot, Audemars, Breitling, Cartier and more.
There are many factors that go into a watches overall quality such as materials, type of movement, and brand. One of the most luxurious types of movements is the automatic movement which gives the second hand that smooth sweeping motion. Most watches bought and sold are quartz movement which is the normal tick, tock, tick tock of the second hand. The more luxurious your second hand sweep, the higher end your watch is.
Something worth mentioning is that since these high end authentic watches are such a luxury there are many counterfeits out there. This has proven to be a big problem as the boom of eCommerce has driven high volume online sales. When it comes time to buy or sell a watch your best bet is to get an appraisal from your local jewelry dealer. This will ensure you know what the value of the timepiece truly is.
When you have reached the level where money is no longer an object is when you see watches being produced and sold for well over $1 million dollars! That’s more than a Ferrari. From super high end rare releases to “icing out” your timepiece with some 24k diamonds, it seems people keep finding ways to take it to that next level.
While some might not understand the excitement a true timepiece has to offer, the ones who do experience a sense of luxury that day in and day out.
