Is it Worth it to Buy an Expensive Watch?

May 23, 2008
Watch prices are soaring... consider this. One man, in 1999, sold his custom made watch for $11 million. Consider it - eleven million dollars. That's more than most people make in a lifetime.

Sure, you're probably not looking into a multi-million dollar watch. But most good, sturdy watches on the market cost a decent bit. And if you want them to look good, you're going to have to spend even more.

Like with the Parmigiani Bugatti Type 370, a classy and attractive watch that topped the Forbes list of top 10 most expensive watches. Clocking in at $200,000, it's got just about any feature you would honestly need. With six sapphires also attached, you can't go wrong.

But is it really worth it to spend even a few thousand on a watch - is there honestly a difference between those that cost you a few months salary, and those that you can grab anywhere?

Quality

A watch is a watch, right? Well, you know, it doesn't quite break down like that - a watch's quality is something you should consider when you're purchasing one.

A cheaper watch often has worse quality. If you tend to bump your watches into things, scrape it against walls, drop it down stairs, or do something even worse to it, you're probably going to want to purchase a sturdier, better quality watch.

However, if you take good care of your watches, then you might not need to purchase it.

Looks

What about the looks? Like expensive looking things (They look expensive because they are!)? Well, you probably won't get that with a cheaper watch - and if you do, most people will be able to tell it's a fake.

If you love looking good, an expensive watch does add the touch that might be missing from your outfit, or look.

Features

The basic, uninteresting watch is, indeed, basic. There are no extra features - you can tell the time, and maybe the date. But that's it - no question, no hassle, no extras.

But if you need some extra things on your watches, or just want something interesting to talk about, a more expensive watch will have it. A lot of extra's, actually.

There's nothing wrong with extras - and if you want them, then a more expensive watch is for you.

Well...

If you want an expensive watch for the features, the looks, or maybe just the quality, then you should buy something a little more expensive. But, if you just need it to tell the time, then maybe you shouldn't spend that much.
