What To Look For

Just because a watch is considered luxury,  that doesn’t 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 off or scratch things isn’t going to be a good watch for exercise and outdoor activities.

Most luxury watch companies produce sports watches that are made to hold up to the pressures of intense activities. If you’re an athlete or intrepid explorer, you’ll want to get a sports watch, a pilot’s watch or a diving watch. Luckily Rolex, Breitling and Patek Philippe 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.
