Regardless of what the bargain hunters might tell you, there is nothing quite like an exquisite high fashion watch to complete your look. The feel of the luxurious expensive material and the look of the shining face glittering on your arm cannot be replicated by what can be found on the high street. This winter, there are a number of delightful top end watches which will delight any recipient and make for the perfect Christmas gift too. Whether you’re one for the current trends or someone who has always preferred the timeless classics, there is a watch for anyone, and once you find your perfect timepiece, you’ll never want to take it off. Here is the cream of the crop this autumn/winter 2014:
Omega De Ville Ladymatic and Constellation
How could one write a rundown on the top high end watches without mentioning Omega? Furthermore, how can one mention Omega without a few words or two on both the De Ville Ladymatic and Constellation?
We’ll begin with the former. The women’s De Ville Ladymatic available at www.watches-of-switzerland.co.uk is quite simply the one of the most glamorous watches a woman could possibly buy; and one would expect it to be with a price of £24,000!
With gorgeous diamonds decorating the De Ville Ladymatic’s 18-carat gold material, it’s no wonder why the watch costs so much. This style is perfect for the girly girl who loves a bit of bling. The rose gold is a far more subtle approach to the sheen of usual gold and a style that will last you so much longer than the usual watch.
At £21,000 the Constellation is slightly less than the Ladymatic; depending on how important you deem three grand of course!
Beautifully made of rose gold, the Omega Constellation with twelve diamonds in the dial, this is another watch to have heads turning and walking into walls.
As you can see, this has a far more sturdy style about it. Of course, you’re not going to want to be wearing your
£21,000 timepiece everywhere it can easily break, but this has the durability well suited to the young professional or busy mum.
We love this watch and its versatile style. Those diamonds really add that subtle touch for a gal after a classic watch with a trendy twist.
Because Price Matters…
It’s a rather sad fact but price matters when it comes to buying any sort of jewellery, watches in particular. Whilst trends may come and go, it’s important to look at the durability of the styles you’re looking at to make the most out of your timepiece. While most people seek lower prices even if it may mean a sacrifice in physical and aesthetic quality, the rich and glamorous are more drawn towards that which is most expensive, as a means of highlighting their strong material worth.
For example, the Cartier’s Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon is worth a staggering £94,000!
However, it is important to find a middle ground when searching for your perfect watch. We’re not expecting anyone to be looking into mortgaging their home to buy a high-end Cartier, but if you INVEST in your watch, it will last longer and feel like more of a treasure too.
For example, this classic style is beautifully made, yet timeless too. Pun intended.
This men’s watch combines a traditionally elegant style with modern, state-of-the-art watch making movement. Made of 18-carat white gold and featuring unique Cartier made movements; this is most certainly a watch to watch out for this winter.
The Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon isn’t the only Cartier watch to be worth close to a hundred grand. Considerably less than the Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon but still at a hefty cost of £73,000 is the Tank
Americaine Flying Tourbillon.
Arguably finer looking than the Astrotourbillon, the Tank Americaine Flying Tourbillon holds the prestigious Geneva Seal certification for great watch making movement and holds an 18-carat pink gold case material.
Having the outside-in is definitely a watch trend and a welcomed one at that. Probably the most distracting watch on the market, you can really witnessed the intricacy of a watch; a sure fire distraction when procrastinating at your desk.
£73,000 may be a bit of a hit, but hey; it costs money to look good!
Whilst certain styles and phases in jewellery comes and go, the watch always remains and there is a number of reason for it too. Instead of relying on your phone, why not invest in something more worth your while.
