If clothes make the man, so can a luxury watch. It is not just a tool for telling time or a piece of jewelry: it’s a character defining work of practical art. Some people balk at the prices of certain watch brands, but true quality doesn’t come cheap, and a good luxury watch will earn back its value by contributing to your life in many ways.

At Hamra Jewelers, luxury watches are our specialty. We have experts on staff skilled in the art of watch repair and we offer luxury watches, from Rolex to Patek Philippe and beyond. If you’re thinking of taking that next step and becoming a luxury watch owner, here are a few reasons why it’s worth going for it.

they are functional and practical

The truth is that in the 21st century you don’t NEED a watch to tell the time. Pretty much every smart device, phone, tablet, and laptop on the market has the ability to accurately tell the time. The benefits that a luxury watch offers, compared to these other items, are ease and accessibility. If you need to tell the time, you don’t need to dig into your pockets for your phone: it’s right there, on your wrist. It also makes for a great first impression: you’re more likely to impress someone by asking you for the time by looking at your handsome luxury watch than by pulling out your cell phone.

you get what you pay for

Luxury watches can be expensive, but they’re expensive for a reason. They’re built to last for a long time. A luxury watch is an investment, something that will become a part of you and add social, aesthetic, and practical value to your life. And unlike cars and other expensive signifiers of wealth and class, luxury watches tend to retain their value over time. Your Patek Philippe is much less likely to lose its worth over the next 10 years than your sports car.

they make a statement

A luxury watch can say a lot about the person wearing it. It speaks to their economic standing, their social status, and their taste. Do you want people to think of you as someone who loves vintage style and history? Get an older watch with a unique dial so you can share fascinating stories about it at gatherings. Or if you want to be seen as someone who’s plugged in, get the latest trend in luxury watches to show that you’re someone who knows how to sail the shifting winds of fashion.

Women have all sorts of clothing options to express themselves; men have a much narrower range of options to play with. It can add a unique, personal touch to any ensemble. A watch is one of the only socially acceptable pieces of jewelry a man can wear, and it’s one of the few items of wealth a person can sport without seeming gauche or overbearing. Driving your fancy car everywhere can make you look like you’re trying too hard, whereas a watch subtly and powerfully conveys the same message.

they can be a legacy

Because of their high value, exquisite designs and durability, luxury watches make for excellent heirlooms. Luxury watches are built to last, to the point that a good watch should be able to survive its owner and its owner’s grandchildren if cared for properly. A luxury watch is an investment in the future of your family, it’s an item of tremendous beauty that will bring prestige to your family’s name and could bring them much-needed wealth and financial security in the event of a crisis. We all want our loved ones to remember us when we’re gone; what better way to stay on the forefront of someone’s mind than to live on as a precious heirloom ticking on their wrist?
