Why Luxury Timepieces Will Never Go Out of Style

Updated on March 21, 2017

Smartwatches offer a variety of features and benefits. With one you can track activity, monitor your heart rate—some even allow instant messaging, music or voice calls when tethered to your smartphone. These features along with dozens more, make smartwatches attractive to just about anyone with a desire to add more tech to their daily lives.

But, what about those who look at watches not as a tech device, but as functional jewelry? Or, what about timepieces that are designed to last more than a year or two and require no software updates or smartphone connectivity? What about owning something that you wear proudly that represents your particular taste in luxury goods, style and success? A luxury timepiece is so much more than an accessory. It’s a status symbol and an embodiment of the wearer’s signature style. Smartwatches are great for what they are, but they certainly don’t exactly have the sophisticated look and feel that consummate watch collectors and wearers want.

Now, we aren’t saying that smartwatches aren’t great for what they do. They’re handy and fun, especially when used in athletic endeavors. But in terms of longevity, smartwatches aren’t designed to last and they lose value the moment you put one on. Luxury watches however are quite different in that regard. In some cases, luxury watches go UP IN VALUE the longer you own one, much like a rare piece of high-end jewelry or sports memorabilia would. Luxury watches also tend to defy trends in styles, retaining classic elements such as stainless steel, silver, gold, platinum, diamonds and leather—all of which have a remarkable ability to the withstand the ebb-and-flow of fashion ins-and-outs.

Luxury watches also mean more from a brand standpoint, too. Rolex, Breitling, Cartier, Tag Heuer, Panerai, Patek Philippe—these brands along with several others evoke the pinnacle of success and prestige, that again, a smartwatch can and never will. According to online auction site Auction King, the intricate build of a luxury timepiece is also quite fascinating and regarded around the world as a true art form. The gears, springs, and mechanical nature of a perpetual or wind-up watch requires precision manufacturing by the skillful hands of a talented watchmaker. Luxury watches are also easy to wear—not requiring anything but a wrist and in some cases, perpetual motion, simple winding or a battery that lasts a decade or more.

Finally, perhaps the single best reason luxury watches never go out of style is because when you own one, it becomes uniquely yours. It becomes part of your identity, look and in many cases your personality, too.
