what to look for

Just because a watch is considered luxury, that does not mean that it can only be worn for special occasions. Some watches are made to look amazing AND be practical for people with active lifestyles. You don't want to take a diamond-studded designer watch with you on a hike or while lifting weights. Any watch that is adorned with stones that could chip or break off isn't going to be a good watch for exercise and outdoor activities.


Most luxury watch companies product sports watches that are made to hold up to the pressures of intense activities. If you are an athlete or intrepid explorer, you will want to get a sports watch, a pilots watch or a diving watch. Luckily Rolex, Patek Philippe and Breitling produce these kinds of models to cater to their customers who want to take their watches everywhere, be it  from the top of Everest to the bottom of the ocean.
