Watches have been used as a status symbol since the time they were invented. There are watches meant for simplicity and sport, these are watches meant to be passed down through generates, and then that are purely meant for the feel of luxury. These luxury watches are not only appreciated by the large majority of people though rather seen as a calling card for true connoisseurs.
Today, luxury timepieces focus on design, complexity and quality. Luxury watch brands aren’t always necessary or novel from a technological point, though in social context, your watch determines your social position, level of education, taste, and most especially wealth.
