Buying a luxury watch is like buying a piece of art you get to wear everyday. Luxury watches have superior craftsmanship and attention to detail that you just don’t see on a run of the mill watch. Here are a couple of things that make a luxury watch a unique piece of art.

Brand signature

All luxury watches are designed using customized elements. Part of the customization process involves the inclusion of a brand signature. This signature is usually displayed in four major areas of the watch. You can have it displayed on the face of the watch or on the crown.

In other luxury watches, you have the logo on the closure of the bracelet or on the case back. You should look at how the signature is displayed. Additionally, most of the luxury watches have the graphics and signature done in relief.


A luxury watch must be professionally decorated to make it elegant. Some of the decorations might be hidden, for instance in the movement. On other watches, these decorations might be overtly displayed. You should not expect that all the decorations be complicated.

The decorations can be in form of a special finish, applied stones, a textured dial or even a flamboyant bracelet. You need to be attentive because these are the elements that make the luxury watches unique and special.


Luxury watches are robust and solid. You need to look for one that has a bracelet that fits well. Make sure you check that the watch is made from original material. For example, if you want a diamond luxury watch, confirm that the material is original diamond. Check the entire case is made from one piece of material.

The watch should also be of the right weight. There are some that are light in weight, while others have heavy construction. Luxury watches that are light in weight are usually made of titanium, while some of the heavy ones are made of diamond or gold.


Another key quality of luxury watches is that they have what is known as complications. You need to look for one with wide range of features integrated together. These complications enhance the accuracy of the watches and make their movement more interesting as they operate.

Some of the complications you should look for include: sonneries, perpetual calendars, moon phases, several time zones, 24 hour dials and rattrapante chronographs.
