5 Expensive Watches You Can Gift To Someone You Love

If you are a watch lover, you might have noticed that people can find only three types of watches out there. You can find the ultra-expensive chronograph, the famous dollar store variant, and the important middle-ground. People wearing a low-end watch will do this for utility, but people using middle-ground watches and expensive ones will use them just to reflect class, and that’s important too.

You can find, for example, Invicta watches on the wrists of upper-middle class people, but you will not find a Cartier on their wrists – not even in a million years. However, Invicta produces watches in different price ranges. For instance, you can find an Invicta watch for a couple of hundred dollars, but you can also find an Invicta watch for sale costing thousands of dollars. For instance, the Invicta Bolt Zeus costs a lot of money today.

Now we are going to let you know about some watches that are awesome for any upper-middle-class man out there, so read on to find out more.

Genuine Classic Timepieces

To identify the real timepiece from its replica, it is important to pay attention on some specific features of watches. Fake watches do not have features of a helium escape valve, transparent case back that does not easily break, and engraved serial numbers.

Fake watches are made in substandard materials and do not last long. It may have the same attributes of the original but their features are not working as accurately and efficiently. For example, a replica may also have a sub-dial feature but is not really working as a stopwatch.

Some fake watches are obvious with their fancy color combinations not seen in genuine watches. The texture of the bezel is also incomparable to that of a genuine watch. The clasps of the bracelet have less complicated mechanisms. And of course, most often, fake watches are not really water resistant even if it’s indicated so.

Here are some genuine timepieces to get you started.

Woman’s Guide to Buying Designer Watches For Men

Buying designer watches for your man, whether it be for your boyfriend or husband, can be frustrating to say the least. Men’s designer watches have come a long way since the first men’s wristwatch was made by Louis Cartier in 1904. Today, there are hundreds if not thousands of different varieties, styles and levels of sophistication of designer watches. This diversity often leaves women confused and overwhelmed at which watch to buy for their man. Do not worry because we are here to help in your decision! By following the simple advice in this guide, you should be able to decide upon which designer watch will suit your man.

Answering just a few simple questions will give you the answer you need!

Classic WatchesWhat type of personality is he – reserved or adventurous?
The more reserved or contemporary man will tend to like the more traditional, classic style watches and maybe even a windup model or pocket watch. Bells and whistles like chronographs and the like will probably mean little to him. Function will be the most important factor in his designer watch. He might prefer more casual brands like Dunhill, Seiko, and Tag Heuer or even the less expensive Casio or Timex.

What is his occupation or what does he like to do for fun?
If he works outdoors or likes to play sports, hike or participate in other outdoor activities, you may want to consider a watch that is more rugged, shock resistant and waterproof. Select a model that has a flexible band that can withstand frequent wrist movement. There are designer watches available for many specific types of activities and occupations such as scuba diving, airplane pilots, military, etc. Most golfers would love to have a Callaway watch.

What are his favorite colors?
Watches are available in almost any color these days and maybe his favorite color would be a deciding factor. One thing to keep in mind is that most men don’t prefer to wear bold, flashy colors and feel more comfortable with darker colors like shades of brown, darker greens and blues. For outdoors men and military minded men, olive green is always a good choice. If your boyfriend or husband is the type that likes maximum exposure then a bright colored watch might be the right choice such as those made popular by Cartier, Patek Philippe and Rolex.

watch for menDoes he have any favorite brands or styles?
Many popular brands such as Kenneth Cole, Oscar de la Renta, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, and Versace have their own watch line, so you probably will not go wrong by choosing one of these. If he likes the brand, in all likelihood he will like their watches.

Is he technology oriented?
The more techie the man, the more he will enjoy any added frills on the watch like chronographs, multiple dials, programming features, pedometers, etc. There are even models that show the position of the planets and the rotation of the earth!

The next time you get your guy out shopping or shopping online, go to the watch section and browse with him. See if anything peaks his interest.

How he dresses on an average day will give you a major clue as to what style of watch he would like. The more casual the dress, the more casual the watch. If he dresses in bright colors, the more flashy the watch. If he typically wears a suit to the office, a more elegant watch will be fitting.

We hope this guide is helpful to women in choosing the best designer watches for the man in their life.
