How to Choose Designer Watches

Updated on March 21, 2015

Why Do You Want a Designer Watch

Designer watches can make a nice contribution to an individual's attire. Decent watches hold their value therefore they can be high quality timepieces, fashionable beauties and even investments all roll into one. Whether you want one for yourself or as a gift for someone, the following guide will help you shop for designer watches.

Features or Styles?

Do you want your luxury watch to have several special features or do you prefer a more classic look? While you can get luxury watches with several different gadgets and features, not everyone needs them. One handy feature, especially for businessmen with dealings across the globe, is a watch that will tell you the time in various timezones. For athletes that want to track their running, swimming, or biking time, there are chronograph watches. There are even watches available that have USB drives and MP3 players. Of course, when considering gadgets, you have to ask yourself if you really need this function on your designer watch or if it will end up being an unnecessary complication.

Comparison Shopping Online

You can look online for designer watches. When you shop online, you can quickly research different styles and brands of designer watches. You can discover what different merchants are charging for watches, as well as find pictures and read customer reviews.

Make sure you are dealing with an honest seller like Amazon, though, if you plan to buy online. The more you are spending, the more important it is to check the credibility of the person or company you are dealing with. You should do a search for negative reviews of the watch and the merchant you plan to buy from. Warranties are an important factor to consider and research, as well.

Hype or Reality?

While it's true that some watches are better than others, most of what you'll hear in ads is hype. Unless you're buying an extremely high end watch, it was most likely mass produced like almost everything else. Companies may show an old fashioned watchmaker handcrafting their watches but that is not realistic. Also, you should know that the jewels inside a watch don't add any significant value or quality to it. Telling the difference between hype and reality is important when looking at ads for designer watches.

You should do a ton of shopping around when on the hunt for a designer watch, so you can get a better idea of what you like and what different watches cost. It can be beneficial to browse through many designer watches online, even if you end up purchasing one in a department store.

Designer watches are an investment, so you want to choose them carefully. Keep the above guidelines in mind as you do your research. Your efforts will not be wasted as you clarify for yourself in the process what sort of designer watches you value.
