Figure your Budget

The budget will allow you to cull the range down to watches that are within your reach. Your beloved would never want you breaking the bank for a timepiece if you don’t have the money for it. So, it is great to figure out the budget and then choose the luxury piece. 

Know the watch Movements


Quartz movements are often found in the low-priced variations of luxury watches that run on a tiny, vibrating, electrified quartz crystal, however, they have moved to more distinguished territory with automatic and mechanical movements and that’s the sweet gifting spot you want to be in. The movement of the watch is the heart and is vital to have an idea about how each one works when selecting your gift. 

Mechanical watches – These watches do not require batteries to operate, instead, they rely on a hand-wound mainspring to keep the time ticking. The only downside of the mechanical watch is the need to wind it once or two in a day to keep the mechanism moving.

Automatic watches – These watches follow the same design blueprint as the mechanical ones with one exception, no manual winding is needed as the mainspring relies solely on the wearer’s physical movement to wind the mechanism. 

Know About the Person’s Tastes

There’s a lot to consider when it comes to the taste of your loved one for whom you are buying the watch. Take inspiration from the current possessions they have like their choice of car, clothes and other tell-tale signs. This gives you a better idea of what they like. For a person who prefers showier aesthetic, there are watch finishes such as yellow gold or rose gold like the Rolex Oyster Perpetual or Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, while the minimalist fiend will go for something more muted, like stainless steel with basic details on the dial. For a sport-oriented person, something packed with features like chronometer functions and world time would be great. Then there are vintage lovers, these people would like classic designs that comprise of moon phase indicators and roman numerals.  

Buying a luxury watch is an intensely personal choice and the important factors to consider are the style, look, features, longevity, material and brand name. Take your time to research over models, compare features as well as price and then buy a beautiful luxury watch for your loved one.
