Considering a luxury watch? Before you do, spend some time educating yourself. Have an idea of what you’d like. Here are four essentials to get you started.
- What type of movement is for you? A quartz or an automatic? Quartz – has simpler movement and is less expensive to maintain. It offers precise timekeeping. Automatic – has complex movement that runs from being worn on the wrist. It is more expensive to maintain, service, and repair. It requires regular wear to keep parts lubricated and for the watch to continue keeping time.
- How will you use your watch? Dress, sport, work, or occasional wear?
- What materials are important to you? Consider the value vs. the cost. Do you want stainless, gold, platinum, and/or diamonds?
- Do you have a budget? If not. Make one. How much are you willing to invest in your timepiece? Be sure to include the cost of regular servicing. It all adds up.
