Much like cars, many people believe that a watch is indicative of a person's personality and taste. A famous Italian dictum is that a well-dressed man or woman owns at least three timepieces. Perhaps this is why buying your first important watch, or starting a watch collection, can be daunting. With so many brands, types, styles, and designs from which to choose, it is important to narrow the field first. Some people collect sport watches, while others may choose watches that are more classic in style; some collect only watches from a certain manufacturer, while others like to mix their collections. When choosing a watch for yourself or as a gift, consider lifestyle, taste and personal preference when it comes to things like the metal used for the case, the size of the face, the material used for the bracelet, the appearance of the dial and an automatic or quartz or manual winding. If it is a gift, consider engraving the back with a personal message or sentiment. Watches are no longer being used solely for utilitarian purposes, and over the centuries, they have evolved into a fashion statement. Like a power suit, luxury watches add a certain cache and many people have come to collect them, pairing different ones with different occasions. This is why watches lend themselves as the perfect gift, even for the person who has everything. The quality of watches vary from brand to brand, along with their styles, designs, and prices. We carry only fine watches, such as Rolex, Cartier, Breitling, Panerai, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Ralph Lauren and Hermes.
