Fashion watches are definitely becoming a trend nowadays and with all the high end companies trying to show us the best outfits out there, we can’t wait to buy accessories that will manage to match the sophistication and opulence.
There are many types of watches: watches that are well known for their precision among connoisseurs, watches that are well known by the entire population because they managed to have great advertisement campaigns but are also good watches (such as Rolex, Omega, Breitling) and watches that are simply bought because of the way they look. The latter are usually made by fashion houses such as Givenchy, Gucci, Christian Dior, or jewelry houses such as Tiffany, Chopard or Swarovski. The reason why people buy those watches is because they are meant to please the eye. Some might have good mechanism, while others might get broken in just a few months, but this is not why the manufacturers make them as they don’t consider them precision watches. They can also cost a lot which is probably one of the reasons why people buy them and make sure that they make a fashion statement out of it. So, these watches can go up to a few thousand dollars or even more if they are made in limited series.
An interesting thing about these watches is the fact that manufacturers will use a lot more precious materials in their making, since they are supposed to be fashion items. You will always see diamonds, sapphires and precious metals on a fashion watch and their designs are usually beautifully made. Most fashion houses might pair up with a good watch company to create really good watches that work well and also look amazing; these are obviously even more expensive and they are usually concept watches or they are sold to just a selected group of people. However, they might also make short series that are available for the whole population, but those usually cost a lot too and end up being sold out very fast so that people can ultimately sell them during auctions with double or triple their initial price.
If you like to wear beautiful watches that look more like bracelets than watches, a fashion watch is definitely the right choice for you.
