7 Of The Best Luxury Watches To Invest In
Watches unlike the rest of our accessories are just as functional as they are fashionable, making them one of the smartest items to invest in when it comes to cost per wear. And the best thing about watches is that don’t adhere trends, meaning a timeless style is likely to last you a lifetime. With so many watch styles of the market, it can be hard to know where to start and what brands to look too. To give you a helping hand we have rounded up the best luxury watches to invest in now.
Hermès - Heure H
Designed in the 90s by Philippe Mouquet, the 'Heure H' collection took inspiration from the house's iconic initial. Handcrafted by the brand's master horologists in Switzerland, this watch is powered by quartz movement inside the stainless steel case and is engraved with a horse-drawn carriage at the back - a homage to the Maison’s equestrian roots. The taupe leather strap is interchangeable, so you can switch shades whenever you like.
Chanel - J12
Chanel’s iconic J12 watch turned 20 this year, marking its place as a cult classic product for the brand. Named after the J-class racing yachts of the 1930s that inspired its sporty design, the J12 is the perfect blend of feminine and unisex style codes, a striking balance that is key to its success.
Bvlgari - Serpenti Seduttori
Just last year Bulgari released the Serpenti Seduttori, a single strap/bracelet version of the iconic Serpenti. Unlike the original Serpenti which features a double or triple wrap bracelet with enamel or gold scales, the Sedutori, features a single scaled bracelet or leather strap and a case head shaped like a snake's head.
Bvlgari - Serpenti Tubogas
One of the most unique and instantly recognisable watches on the market, Bulgari’s Serpenti watch takes inspiration from the serpent, featuring a wraparound design. It’s sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Rolex - Datejust
The Rolex Datejust watch is a timeless classic for a reason and if there's any investment you make, this might just be one of the smartest. A true, borrowed from the boys’ design, the Datejust features all same details of a traditional men’s watch.
Cartier - Ballon de Cartier
This genderless watch is a tried-and-true classic and always will be. Architectural in design, the Ballon Bleu is a dazzling timepiece that also boasts endless wearability. Wear it peeking out from beneath a blazer cuff, to accentuate a silk evening gown, or even to elevate a simple white T-shirt and jeans.
Omega - Constellation
A favourite of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Omega’s Constellation Manhattan collection is as elegant as it is timeless. First created in 1952, the Constellation Manhattan collection has undergone a handful of makeovers in its time to ensure it remains modern and wearable as the decades change.
