Why buy a luxury watch?

People have many different reasons for choosing their timepiece of choice, however one of the biggest decisions before taking the plunge is how to justify investing your hard earned cash into a brand name watch.

At Charles Martin Watch Company we believe in the many benefits of owning a head turning timepiece. Below we take a look at some of the reasons why people wear luxury watches.


While looks are undoubtedly important, there is something even more important to consider – how well does your watch tell the time? While cheaper watches are usually mass produced, skilled master horologists are behind the biggest watchmaking companies.
These watches cost so much because they are so much better than the rest. Patek Phillipe watches are so intricate that they can take between 10 and 24 months per watch to be manufactured. This level of quality ensures that your timepiece will reliably keep the time for decades or more with very minor occasional maintenance.

They Retain Value

If you’re thinking of buying a luxury watch for investment purposes or with the intent to sell it one day, you have to buy carefully. Your best option is to stick with a prestigious brand like Rolex or Patek Philippe that retain their product value.
It is possible to buy a luxury watch, wear it for a few years and then sell it for a similar amount. A luxury timepiece is a valuable investment.

They Make Great Heirlooms

One of the most common heirlooms to be passed down through generations is a quality timepiece. A luxury watch is timeless. Tasteful and well manufactured watches can be treasured forever and passed down to younger generations.

You Have Art on-the-Go

The complexity and scale of the all the gears and pieces that work together are art. Some watches take months to make from experts that have spent their whole life in the field. Wearing a luxury watch means you have something elegant and beautiful with you at all times, a work of art that is at your side wherever you go.

Although any watch can keep the time, luxury timepieces will provide you with a lifetime of satisfaction. However, a brand new luxury watch may not be in everyone’s budget. Buying a preowned luxury brand will offer you the same outstanding watch at a lower price. At Charles Martin Watch Company, all our pre owned watches come with 12 months warranty.
