Pleasures of Owning a Luxury Timepiece

BECAUSE A WATCH ISN’T JUST A TIMING INSTRUMENT BUT ALSO A PURSUIT OF PERSONAL SATISFACTION

BECAUSE A WATCH ISN’T JUST A TIMING INSTRUMENT BUT ALSO A PURSUIT OF PERSONAL SATISFACTION

Rarely will you meet a more passionate group of people than watch collectors. For those fortunate and intuitive enough to get into the game, they have found that timepieces not only provide a joy from an intrinsic value but also one that provides a high degree of pleasure. 

There are many attributes in purchasing and canvassing for a luxury timepiece but as many would attest to, it’s a combination of both time (pun intended) as well as money. But the trade-off is they will get to embark on a journey of discovery that will satisfy for years to come. Here are some reasons why the pursuit of time pays off in a major way.

A Class Above

Wearing a luxury watch almost instantaneously gets you noticed. Often, it acts as a great ice-breaker and a topic of conversation at social functions. It can also instantaneously communicate your status and level of success, which is especially important in the corporate world. Turning up for a social gathering or business meeting brandishing a quality from a well-established brand like Rolex or Jaeger-Le Coultre will not allow you to stand out but also implies that you belong in a different class as it is ultimately a high-status accessory.

A Showcase Of Your Personality

A luxury timepiece is not only functional but can also reveal a lot about your personality as well as interests. Whether it is a dive watch from Panerai, a pilot’s watch from Bremont or a motorsport-inspired piece from TAG Heuer or coveted world timer from IWC, the timepiece you have on your wrist will reveal more about the person you are and the interests you keep.

Owning A Piece Of Art

As they say the devil is in the details and this can’t be further from the truth when it involves an intricately crafted timepiece. There is not just a huge degree of engineering involved but also a high-level of artistry. A close inspection of pieces from brands such as Arnold & Son and Jaquet Droz will reveal the elegance and sophistication produced from the skilled hands of maisons who have spent decades perfecting their craft.

History On Your Wrist

For many collectors, the historical aspect of a timepiece can be the main differentiating factor. For some brands and models, there’s a distinct story behind the piece or the movements it incorporates that will captivate the attention of a buyer. Models such as the Cartier Tank and the Omega Speedmaster boast unique stories behind their respective creations, which are just as engaging as the timepieces themselves.

A Valuable Investment

Various luxury timepieces can hold their value over the course of time. In fact on rare occasions they may even appreciate over time. Several models from Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Omega certainly come to mind. For collector’s speculating on the trends and hunting down a particular coveted timepiece is part of the overall experience. But for most, owning a limited edition piece that appeals to your personal sense of style is just as rewarding. Best of all, over time it can even be passed off from one generation to the next as a family heirloom.
