Forget functionality, a luxury timepiece attached to a wrist just always seems to be a major enhancement to any wardrobe. Expensive brands carry an air of influence that truly exhibit the extent of a person’s achievement, as well as command respect and appreciation for the perfected craftsmanship in which these items are created.
While the main function of luxury watches is to tell time, many of today’s models offer state-of-the-art functionality. Some of these extraordinary options include two-way radio capability, small computers, even GPS. Just imagine looking at your wristwatch to find out where you are located if you become lost! It’s ridiculous what these prestigious companies have come up with.
As if this wasn’t enough, some companies have chosen to go above and beyond even these state-of-the-art options. Some watchmakers actually offer watches that will last a lifetime, a true luxury in which the owner never has to consider buying another watch ever again, but of course, if they have the extreme amount of money it takes to purchase one watch then they will most likely buy another one eventually.
If you happen to find yourself blessed enough to be in a position to buy a high-end watch, then there are a few things you should consider when making a purchase. Even though you will most likely purchase a high quality time piece from whichever manufacturer you decide on, it is still a good idea to do a little fact-finding when buying such an expensive item.
First of all, there are two different types of high-end watches to choose from; an automatic watch and a quartz watch. Other than the fact that it runs on batteries, there is not much difference to a quartz watch; however, it is less expensive than an automatic watch.
A high end watch does not run on batteries; instead, it runs according to the physical movement of the man wearing it, meaning that if you go a long span of time without wearing the watch it will stop, requiring you to wind it and shake it a few times to get it working again. There are two types of automatic watches; caliber automatic watches and standard automatic watches. The differences between the two are small, but they bear mentioning.
As mentioned, automatic watches do not require a battery; however, after a period of time has passed, the time they keep tends to be innacurate. A caliber automatic watch provides better aattentionle, a standard automatic watch, after being worn for a month, is typically off by about 12 minutes. A caliber watch though, is only off by two minutes.
In addition, a starter automatic watch will continue to operate for 36 days before stopping, while a caliber automatic watch will run for 50 days. As you might guess, a caliber automatic watch is the more costly of the two.
Which watch you decide on eventually depends on your budget and sense of style. Buying a luxury watch is a hefty expense so make sure you are getting exactly what you want and that it is suits your lifestyle, and lastly, have fun while shopping. You now know what to look for, which really should not leave you with too many problems. All luxury watchmakers provide high quality watches.
