Watches are a centerpiece for men’s fashion as well as women’s. For guys, a watch is symbolic. It represents personality, characteristics and sophistication. There’s a saying that goes, ‘you can tell a lot about a man by what watch he wears.’ For Hollywood stars, rappers and otherwise wealthy people, the choice is usually a high quality Swiss timepiece such as a Rolex, Omega, Franck Muller, Patek, Cartier, among other high end, and over the top expensive watches. These watches range from sporty and clean to bold and flashy. You can expect to pay at least a few thousand bucks for a name brand watch such as these.
Lately, however, there has been an evolution in watch making that allows lower end manufacturers to produce truly high quality watches at a small fraction of the cost of Swiss brand name watches. Usually the lower end watches such as Geneva or other private label brands only looked expensive. Upon touch the watch feels cheap and is often made with cheap quality parts. However, during the past five years technology and innovation has allowed lower end manufacturers to produce breathtaking high quality watches that not only looks great, but feels great and lasts. Some of the upgraded features are solid stainless steel construction rather than plating as well as higher quality precision quartz movements that are designed to last many years. In addition to those upgrades, fashion watches now offer mineral glass crystals just like on top end watches. Fashion watches are made with high quality genuine leather bands just like top end watches as well. Just about every aspect of high end watches can now be replicated and built into fashion watches without the high cost to the consumer. This is due to cheaper labor costs, economies of scale in producing high numbers of watches, and advances in modern day watch making technology.
The major costs in the top end brand name watch industry go into marketing and testing. Because fashion watches avoid these costs, you can purchase a great watch at a very affordable price. Websites and fashion jewelry stores across the country now offer high quality fashion watches that look and feel like high end watches that usually cost thousands. These watches are similar to Jacob & Co., Rolex, Cartier, Invicta, Patek, among various high end brands. The watches are very affordable and are made with the best materials. Now anyone can get the same look as the stars while saving a ton of cash.
