Rolex And Luxury Watches--A Lifestyle Decision

Sep 15, 2008
Luxury watches have been used by men and women to define their status and personality. The Rolex watch has been a popular choice of statesmen,filmstars,and wealthy business people. It is a recognised symbol of understated good taste,power and wealth. The fine Omega watch has been popular with seamen. The great Breitling watch is often associated with the military.

Rolex is the best recognised fine watch. More people recognise Rolex than any other luxury watch. The Omega,Patek Phillipe,Movado,Breitling are all great watches to name just a few. However they seem to lack the Rolex feeling. It is hard to describe but it is there when wearing a Rolex.

Most people recognise the Rolex watch. When they see one on someone's wrist they mentally note this person as someone above the crowd. A person of strong personality who doesn't flaunt a gaudy emblem of riches. A person who is seen to have good taste.

Many other costly luxury watches are not commonly recognised,by the majority of people,for what they are. It may be a watch that cost more than a Rolex but it just does not have that same panache. It is just another watch. These may be costly watches but they are not recognised as status symbols to nearly the same extent as the Rolex.

The Omega watch would be my second choice after Rolex. I would be proud and happy to wear an Omega. Similarly the Breitling or the Movado are beautiful watches. I could name many more great watches. People who know them will have a favorite choice. However none of them have that air of personality plus that the Rolex exhibits. Rolex watches are an understated emblem of power and wealth for some owners. For others Rolex is simply the best watch that is available anywhere.

Agent 007,otherwise known as James Bond wore a Rolex watch. No diamond studded emblem was needed by 007. Just a plain elegant Rolex which told everyone that this was a person who knew what he wanted and had got it. Why say more.

Luxury watches have always been used by the wealthy as a popular accessory. Those who want to appear wealthy try to copy them. This is the reason for the popularity of replica watches. Hundreds of thousands of them are sold every year. But of what value
are they? Does wearing a cheap fake improve how you feel about yourself? I don't believe so.

The best way to buy a real luxury watch at a price you can afford is to buy a used watch. Whether it be a Rolex or any other make used luxury watches can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of a new watch.
