Luxury watches have a special place in the industry. Most Swiss brands are luxury watches, but there are also quite a number of luxury watchmakers outside of the country. And as the market for luxury watches widens in reach and breadth, luxury fashion brands are also coming in on the foray. In this article, we’ve collated some of the best luxury watches you can buy:
Chopard Happy Diamonds
Chopard is known for high-quality, high-end jewelry, but it’s also one of the few Swiss watchmakers that seriously take jewelry watches. For the ladies, a Chopard watch means something really sophisticated, and the Happy Diamonds collection is an excellent choice among a sea of options and alternatives. To see the Chopard Happy Diamonds watch is to believe it. To say that it’s a stunning collection is understating it.
Under the hood of Happy Diamonds watches is a Swiss quartz movement, a different luxury material case depending on your preference, with choices ranging from white gold, gold to rose gold. And to top it all off, on the case’s bezels and the outer ring for some models, you get diamonds. There’s a 32mm for smaller wrists, but the bigger, more substantial 38mm dial is also to die for.
Bvlgari is arguably one of the most recognized fashion brands in the world that have its sights on watchmaking for decades now. The legendary Serpenti line from the brand is still a much-talked-about timepiece in the industry, but the latest Diagono that caters to a more masculine audience is where the brand is making waves.
The collection is stunning and uniquely Bvlgari if you know what we mean. It’s not quite Chanel Monsieur watches, but the beauty behind the Diagono is its straightforward approach to timekeeping. The Diagono features automatic and quartz movements depending on the model. Get the automatic if you are serious about acquiring this watch; otherwise, you’re better off with other options.
Patek Philippe Grand Complications
Getting a Patek is not only an obvious choice for true blue collectors; it also immediately levels up your collection if you at least have one! Suffice it to say, a Patek Philippe watch is expensive, and even the used and second-hand ones still quite fetch the pretty penny. One of the most important watches from the brand is the Nautilus. The 2006 redesign is heralded by almost every watch expert to be a triumph, and it’s certainly is the watch to get for CEO’s, actors, and industry leaders.
But forget about the Nautilus for a second and feast your eyes at one of the most underrated collection from the brand: the Grand Complications. The latest releases of Grand Complications may seem and look out of place in a time of the pandemic, but you can say that these watches hold some historical value because of their release. The open dial in the 5303R is a first for Patek in a long time, showcasing the watch’s minute repeater.
Patek is famously averse to skeleton dials, but with these three new releases, the company has opted to grace its customers’ requests with one. Albeit, only 12 pieces are manufactured by the company. The other two new releases are more of the same from previous Patek’s, and purists who love the brand’s aesthetic!
There you have it – these are some of the most luxurious timepieces you can buy today. Always bear in mind that making the most out of a watch collection doesn’t mean that you only buy the most expensive watches. Quite the contrary, actually, because having the restraint and levelheadedness that comes with sourcing a really important watch doesn’t have to do with money at all!
