Perhaps you saw an ad in a magazine or on television for a shiny new designer watch, or maybe you are envious of the Rolex you see your boss sporting at work. Designer watches can be a great investment if you know what to look for and keep them regularly maintained. But like designer fragrances, many watches are knocked off and it can be hard to tell what is a truly special watch. This guide will help you look for the key components that make a designer watch great.
The true luxury watches may cost an arm and a leg, but that is because they weren't made in a factory. Swiss watches are known around the world for being handmade by artisans who have passed down watch making traditions through the generations. For both men's and ladies designer watches, details like mechanical movements, hand painted minute and hour hands, and hand-etched numbers add a level of personalization to your watch that can't be beat.
