Deciding which watch to buy? Never just Guess!
  • Your Personal Style: Who you are should be reflected in what you wear. If you’re bold and progressive, wear something that makes a statement like a Franck Muller. If you love innovation, consider purchasing a Piaget.
  • Your Specific Purpose: Before you purchase a luxury watch, consider your needs. If you simply need something to wear to the office, perhaps a formal Patek Phillipe will do the trick. If you need something for a day on the yacht, a BlancPain Leman Perpetual Calendar would be more efficient. Consider where you will be wearing the watch before you make the purchase.
  • Your Personality: Only those in love with style should purchase a Bvlgari. Similarly, only those who want to be first should consider IWC. Think about what you want to say with your timepiece, then make the luxury watch purchase that best matches your needs.
  • The Exclusivity: Some watches are made for lots of people, and some luxury watches, like those created by Vacheron Constantin are just for the few. Consider whether you’re looking for something with limited production numbers or something many can afford.
