When it comes to building a luxury watch collection, there are two main things to consider. The first one is its style. Designer chronograph watches, models with square-shaped cases, classic pure gold watches, rubber straps or metal bracelets – every detail matters! Therefore, before you start, try different options to find the key style for your own collection. Only in such a case, your timepieces will reflect your personality and way of life.

Another important thing to consider is the budget. Think carefully about how much money you can spend on your first luxury watch. We recommend to start with the most comfortable for you price level and build up from there. Besides, if your budget doesn’t allow purchasing brand new watches, you should always consider buying used watches and vintage pieces. Once you decide on a budget, it’s high time to find your first luxury watch. We have selected several outstanding items that can become an ideal starting point for any collection. Here goes!
