Read This Before You Make Your Next Watch Purchase

If you considering buying your first watch or adding that one must have to your ever expanding watch collection, you need to read this in order to avoid some of the pitfalls when buying a luxury wristwatch.  Here are some of the questions you need to consider when buying a high end watch.  What size watch should I buy? Do i need to buy the most expensive watch on the market? What types of functions do I expect to have in my new watch? Should i even consider buying a replica watch? Let us explore these questions and more to help improve your watch buying experience.

1.    When should I buy my new luxury watch? 

As with any purchase, you need to do your research before making your final purchase.  Read some luxury watch collector magazines, visit blogs and ask your friends about their recommendations before you make your decision. Only after you have made all your choices about style, price, features and brand name should you make your purchase.

2.    How Much Should i Spend?

in a nutshell, spend as much as you can afford.  If you have done all your due diligence in  step one, budget should not really be an issue as you all ready know exactly what you want.  Remember, luxury watches are an investment in the future.  High end watches will last for years and will be able to pass from generation to generation.

3.    What Brand Name is Best For Me? 

You have done your research and decided on a budget.  You have narrowed your decision down to a few watches that have everything you want in a watch.  Now the important decision as to what brand should you buy.  To be honest,  only you can make that choice.  if you are going to have this watch for the rest of your life,  be happy with the brand you choose.  All the major manufacturers make a quality product that is built to last.

4.    Where to buy. 

If you’re buying from the watch store itself (e.g. Rolex store) then I guess you can omit this on your list. If you have decided to buy your watch online, than my only recommendation can be XclusiveWatchStore - (I own this site and have bought many watches through it).  It offers a huge selection of high-end and custom watches.

5.    Check the Fit

Before you make the final purchase, whether it is online or in the store,  make sure to check how the watch looks on your wrist.  Be sure to wear the same style shirt you normally will wear with your watch.

There are many other factors to consider before making the investment into a luxury watch.  We have only scratched the surface here, but I hope this will help you in your decision making process.
