Luxury watches are my favorite facet in the world of watches. They are where artful fashion meets time honed craftsmanship. They are art object, jewelry, and time piece, simultaneously. Every major watch maker has some luxury watches on the market. They tend to be expensive, but when you find the perfect luxury watch, you re-discover the bon vivant of the watch world.
Take the Revue Thommen Women’s Skeleton Dial Goldtone Case Leather Strap. This women’s watch encompasses everything I love about Revue Thommen. Normally I have trouble appreciating a women’s skeleton watch, but the breathtaking simple face coupled with the elegant complexity of the gold movement make this piece truly stunning. Any women would be pleased to have this work of art on her wrist.
For men I would suggest the Cuervo Y Sobrinos Men’s Esplendidos Dual Time Black/Indigo Blue Dial. Many men complain that the so called “luxury watch” market is too feminine, and that the watches resemble women’s jewelry too strongly. That is not that case with this or any other Cuervo Y Sobrino. This watch epitomizes cosmopolitan masculinity.
These are just two examples of the wonderful things happening in the luxury watch world. Make sure you get a sense of what is out there before you commit to purchasing, this watch will be with you for a long time.
