Guide to Luxury Watches

Introduction to Luxury Watches

Luxury watches add a bit of undeniable sophistication and style to any wardrobe. But what constitutes a luxury watch? These timepieces stand out from the rest in that they are crafted by expert artisans using the highest grade materials and exemplify the most cutting-edge styles. They are built to withstand significant damage and remain exquisitely precise. Read on to learn more about the specifications that make luxury watches so sought after.

In-House Movements

Watch movements refer to the inner-workings of the watch. Mechanical watch movements are the most expensive, and designers may either outsource these, or create them in-house. The best brands and designers typically design and construct their own movements in-house, adding to the overall quality and value of the watch. Some designers will even perform the finishing touches such as polishing and assembly completely by hand, which ensures that every timepiece is unique.

Complications

Watch complications refer to the actions a watch is capable of performing other than the standard timekeeping. Some popular complications include chronograph, date displays, calendars, and time-zone displays. Typically, the more complications a watch can perform, the more luxurious it is considered as the thousands of intricate pieces necessary to create these complications take much time and precision to assemble and perfect. A truly high-end timepiece will incorporate these complications in a way that is functional yet still stylish.

Certifications

Many designers will acquire third-party certifications of quality and functionality in order to assure buyers of the timepieces’ luxury caliber. Among the many certifications that exist for luxury watches, the Geneva Seal and the Chronometer Certification are two of the most notable. Timepieces receive the Geneva Seal when they meet a very specific criteria of quality and origin. The Chronometer Certification is awarded to those watches that retain accuracy amid various trying conditions.
