Unique Luxury Watches: for men and women
Unique luxury watches come with a variety of price tags. Swiss watches are invariably in the top ten but the price range can be enormous so you have to be careful. If you're finding yourself a bit flush with money at the moment you might consider the Jaeger Lecoultre Hybris Mechanica A Grande Sonnerie. Furthermore, at $2.5 million this might be out of the reach of most people. It's not only one of the most expensive watches in the world, it's also one of the most complex.
Jaeger Lecoultre Hybris Mechanica À Grande Sonnerie
Compared with most watches, this one is quite complicated since it has over 1300 parts meticulously manufactured.
You could probably argue that the Hybris Mechanica has no serious rivals but even if you could afford it you may be too scared to wear it.
So buying a unique luxury watch is very much about having a watch that satisfies YOUR uniqueness. What suits one person, and looks really good on their wrist, will often look clumsy on yours. So it's all about matching the watch to the person.
With so much choice in the watch market at the moment - where do you start?
Unique Luxury Watches: Choosing the right one for you.
There are several things to remember when choosing a unique watch, whether it is is for you or a gift for someone else:
- What style of clothing and other jewellery, if any, are you most likely to be wearing?
- What qualities in the watch are important to you? Build quality, easy to read, bling factor, unusual styling, comfort and cost.
- What style of watch best suits your wrist?
- Also, are you trying to make a statement with your watch?
- What unique qualities in the watch reflect the unique qualities of the person wearing it? I bought my fiancee at the time a very small but perfectly formed rose-coloured watch. It was her favourite colour and she thought of herself as "small and perfectly formed".
