Tremendous Selection of New and Used Watches

Apr 24, 2008
The popularity of the internet has made buying and selling of various items as easy as clicking the computer mouse. Most transactions are completed in just a matter of minutes or seconds, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Today, choosing a watch can be easily achieved just by looking at the different catalogues offered by various websites selling different kinds of watches.

Watches like Rolexes and Bvlgaris do not come cheap. These high-quality timepieces cost a lot so people tend to hold on to them for years to come. Luxury watches are a stylish investment, and one that many people want to keep in their families for generations.

Even the highest quality watches, however, require regular servicing, which may mean a simple battery change or something more extensive, such as changing the rubber gaskets on a waterproof watch. How should a fancy watch owner go about finding a good service center, and what sort of servicing might be required?

A good servicing center should be able to handle any kind of watch feature. Watches today do much more than tell time; they can even perform some computer functions. Watches that are fashion statements might also serve as two-way radios, or function as a GPS unit that displays locations and directions. Luxury watches come with a dazzling array of sophisticated features. What will they think of next?

Pocket watches made their debut in the 1500s. Portable watches gave people the freedom to carry their timepieces with them. Whether worn around the neck or in a vest, pocket watches were as stylish as they were convenient. Pocket watches made serious technological advancements in this era, as well. Clock makers fashioned new devices to increase the accuracy and time-telling precision of their watches. Along with increased precision, alarms were added to some pocket watches.

By the end of the 17th century, pocket watches were even more advanced. Stylistically speaking, the watch face became rounder and slimmer. The box image was replaced. Pocket watches of this era were an equal mix of design and technical craftsmanship, as clockmakers began to treat their work as art.

Omega watches were first made in 1885, and they continue to be one of the most popular watch brands today (120 years later). The staying power and longstanding popularity of Omega watches is a testament to the quality of the product. Omega watches are manufactured in Biel/Bienne Switzerland.

Figure out which Omega watch you want and then go out and buy it. You will know that you have purchased a watch that it is truly a fine piece of jewelry. And while no one left you an antique heirloom, you may hand down your watch for future generations to treasure.
