In the previous post, we learnt all about the materials you should look for in a luxury timepiece. Now we will focus on the other details you should look out for that distinguishes a good watch from a must-have luxury timepiece.

The Mechanics

A regular watch runs on replaceable batteries whereas a luxury timepiece is operated mechanically. They run on a very intricate system of cogs and springs that require regular servicing. These watches are always assembled by a master craftsman almost entirely by hand. They are also mostly assembled in-house. When maintained properly, these watches can last for decades and decades, unlike regular watches that need to be replaced often. This means that once you own a luxury timepiece, it can even be handed down from generation to generation as a family heirloom.

The Maker

It’s easy to know a luxury watch from a quartz watch simply by learning about the maker. Everyone knows that Swiss-made is the highest ideal for an elegant wristwatch that lasts lifetimes. Wearing iconic pieces from a heritage brand, a brand that boasts of its master craftsmen that come from a long line of experts, shows your sophistication and your status without the need to be flashy.

At Bernhard H. Mayer®, for example, you can rest assured that all watches are Swiss-made in accordance with Swiss watch-making standards of quality. They are a family business that has been in existence since 1871, and each timepiece is created to a high standard par excellence.
