The chances are that if you’ve turned your attention to luxury watches (read: Breitling, Tag Heuer, Baume & Mercier, Hublot, Panerai etc) then you are in all likelihood looking for your forever watch – the timepiece that you are looking to have for many years to come. As such, luxury watches deserve much more consideration and pondering than your run-of-the-mill watch purchase – not least because you will typically have to spend in excess of a thousand pounds to pick up a decent luxury watch.
So, what features should you be on the look-out for when you plan to buy a new IWC, Tag, U-Boat or Breitling watch? Well, let the following buyer’s guide be your Sherpa through the do’s and don’ts of purchasing a high end timepiece…

BRAND AWARENESS
You may think that you know a lot about luxury watches but there are sure to be some brands that you were unaware of and which should definitely come into the reckoning when you are buying a luxury watch – you’ve got your mainstays like Tag Heuer, Rolex, Hublot and Breitling watches but which other brands which may not be so well known are deserving of a look-in? How about some of the following:

Bremont Watches:
Bremont watches are UK designed and Swiss built and are fast garnering a reputation as being one of the most sought after luxury watch brands on the market – such as the stunning ALT1-Z watch below.

Raymond Weil:
A relative newcomer to the luxury watch market but one that has wasted no time in making their presence felt. Raymond Weil watches are innovative and bold whilst retaining a classical style and they are set to have a big year in 2012 due to quality timepieces such as the one below.

Baume & Mercier Watches:
One of Switzerland’s oldest watchmakers and unquestionably one of their finest, Baume & Mercier have many stunning collections including the much sought after Capeland collection, one of which can be witnessed below.

PRICE
After you’ve decided which brand you want to go for when buying a luxury watch, you will need to turn your attention to price. So, take a look at some of our options below, providing you with a budget, mid-range and high-end watch to match every budget.
