There are a number of reasons why you may be considering investing in your first luxury men’s watch. Perhaps you are looking to buy a classic Hublot watch that will provide you with top quality timekeeping, maybe you are looking for a way to subtly display your wealth or you could even be hoping to find a special luxury watch to pass down to younger members of your family in the future. Whatever your reason for buying a high-end watch, it’s important not to rush into it.
See our tips below for guidance on buying your first luxury men’s watch.
Before you start shopping for designer men’s watches, we highly recommend setting yourself a budget. Even if you have a lot of money to spend, it is likely that you will have a top figure in mind. Setting a budget will give you a better idea of the designer watches you can afford and will, therefore, help you to narrow down your search.
What we will say is that the price of luxury men’s watches tends to reflect their quality. The more you are willing to spend, the longer your watch will last. You shouldn’t feel guilty about spending a significant amount of money on your watch, as after all it is a practical purchase. As long as you take care of it, your luxury watch will last you for decades and may even be something you can pass down to your son or grandson in the future.

Consider how often you will be wearing your watch
It is also recommended that you consider how often you will be wearing your watch and what you will be doing with it. For example, if you are sporty, you will need to choose a watch that is robust, comfortable and maybe even water-resistant for when you are playing a sport. Alternatively, if you are just planning on wearing your watch on special occasions, you may want to go for a style with extra ‘bling.’
Pick a designer brand
If you have been considering buying your first luxury men’s watch for a while now, it is likely that you already have a designer brand in mind (e.g. Hublot Big Bang) and this is sure to be advantageous when it comes to buying your watch, as it will make the process much quicker.
It is often safer to go with a well-known brand e.g. Hublot as they have a proven track record for quality and given their popularity, it should be fairly easy to have your watch repaired or having parts replaced over the years.
Decide on a style and must-have features
As well as choosing a designer brand, you will also need to decide on the style of watch you prefer, as well as it’s ‘must-have’ features. Remember your watch will say a lot about you as a person, so you will want to choose a design that shows off your style and personality. Not only that, but you need to remember that you will be wearing this watch for a good few years (if not decades) so it needs to be timeless.
An example of a decision you will need to make is whether you prefer watches with traditional blank faces or those with skeleton movements. The latter refers to watches where you can see the gears moving behind the hands, such as with many Hublot watches.
You also need to consider whether you are happy with a watch that just has an hour and minute hand only or whether you want it to have further ‘complications.’ This is basically the industry term for extra features such as a second hand, calendar etc. Keep in mind that the more features the watch has, the more expensive it is likely to be.
Research different makes and models
If you are buying your first luxury men’s watch in hope of making a return on it in the future, you will need to do some research to find out how well particular makes and models hold their value. What we will say is that if you are planning on wearing your watch, you will never get the money back that you spend on it. Just like when you buy a new car and use it when you wear a luxury watch, it will immediately lose some of its value.
Buying your first luxury men’s watch should be an enjoyable process, so take the time to consider these tips and shop around to find the perfect watch.
