Designer Watches – How to Choose
Some of us tend to confuse luxury watches with jewelry. We also tend to place these two, very different, items in similar categories, but the facts are that timepieces, while stylish, must function with precision and accuracy. Many high fashion designers, such as Michael Kors and others offer watch collections, but how do you know if you are buying a top quality timepiece? Well, there are many ways of determining the value of a watch. Here are some tips and tricks to knowing just how well made your timepiece are:
• Brand name; the reputation of the brand (or designer) is a vital piece of this puzzle. Many fashion designers are well known, but that presence doesn’t necessarily add up to a quality reputation. Do a little research to find out about the designers other lines and how well they hold up. You can search through customer blogs and reviews and get a pretty good idea of the workmanship of their goods.
• High end materials; is the piece made from solid materials? You should look for strong metals like steel and gold and the use of sapphire crystals. Another high quality item would be the strap of bracelet. Even if it is made from leather, the leather should be soft and supple.
• Warranty; yes, your designer timepiece should come with an appropriate warranty. The manufacturer should stand behind their product and show that with a proper guarantee.
Many high end designers are trustworthy watchmakers. Follow this advice and be a smart shopper.
