A luxury watch is a great status symbol: it’s functional and can hold its value – or even appreciate – over time. That’s something that’s hard to say about other luxury items you can wear. The downside is that a fine, Swiss-made watch is usually quite expensive. But luxury watches don’t have to cost an arm and a leg if you know how to shop for them. You can save a fair amount of money by going to the cheapest retailer, but you need to know the risks involved. I’ll take a look at some of the popular ways to buy luxury watches and highlight the good and bad for each method.

When shopping for pre-owned watches or just poking around flea markets and estate sales you should keep in mind that almost no watch is beyond repair.

A watch is so much more than fashion. It is a technology that has remained in many ways fundamentally the same for the last couple hundred years. Engineering that technology remains a craft that is careful and detailed. It is a skill that these companies ensure you pay for. The precious metals that go into most of the big player’s {Tudor|Zenith|Franck Muller|TAG Heuer|Tissot|Tiffany & Co|Hamilton|Waltham|Gruen} watches are also things of implicate value. Unlike many of the designer gowns and wild dresses paraded around during fashion week you can expect those Cartier watches and (tudor;zenith;franck muller;tag heuer;tissot;tiffany & co;hamilton;waltham;gruen) to be back next year.

The crown is a screw-in crown with the familiar IWC fish motif. Both the crown and the pushers are apparently slightly wrong sized, but I think you’d need a gen and a rep side by side to see it.

The faults and flaws on this watch are pretty much all on the dial. The numbers on the 12 and 9 subdials should all be horizontal, there are three dots missing in the 12 subdial and the 12 and 6 dials should be ringed in white. Apart from that pile of errors, it’s damned close. I think a genuine dial would finish it off to a T.

Soon after this, the designs began to be modified. From the classical round shape that had been in fashion, new shapes and sizes started to be introduced. New companies introduced new shapes. Movado is the company that came out with the new “Polyplan” shaped watch. Patek Philippe made the first rectangular shaped clock.
