If you’re going to invest money into a luxury watch you need to know which watches are worth the money. This article will be your introductory guide to the best luxury watches for men.
The canonical brand of luxury watch is Rolex. They are perhaps the most well known and well respected time piece manufacturer in the world, and the price reflects it. Buying a Rolex watch is an investment in itself. You are making an investment in your appearance. Rolex has a variety of watch types that can fit for any occasion. If you’re interested in an elegant, formal time piece you should look at the Datejust and Day Date collections of watches. These are best worn for formal occasions, but they can be dressed down for other events. These collections of watches are rather ornate, but don’t mistake their showiness as cumbersome.
If you’re looking for something with a bit more functionality, consider Rolex’s Yacht Master II or Explorer collections. These watches feature a multi dial face and water resistance down to 150 meters under the water’s surface. They are perfect for the man who wants a certain level of utility from his time piece, but does not want to sacrifice luxury. Rolex watches range between $650 and $75,000, but for the aforementioned collections you can expect to pay between $3000 and $5500 per watch.
If you’re interested in a luxury watch but do not have the money to purchase a Rolex, the Tudor brand of time pieces of a great alternative. The prices are generally lower than Rolex but still maintain the lavishness that its predecessor contains. For a great showy time piece, check out Tudor’s Chronograph collection. This set of time pieces is iconic among watch connoisseurs and it is the backbone of Tudor’s collections. It is a robust watch that sits firm on the wrist, but it is not too unwieldy that it hinders every day activities. This line is a sure fire hit in the style department. Expect to pay between $2000 and $4500 for a Chronograph.
For a more active watch you should browse the Archeo collection from Tudor. These watches are characterized by their quartz chronograph movement, black Arabic dials and rectangular faces.
