Top Luxury Watch Brands: Hermes, Rolex and MovadoJanuary 30, 2012
There’s nothing like a luxury watch to make a statement for a person. Combined with exquisite design, high quality, and multiple functions, the top three luxury brand watches of today definitely have the right to command top dollar.
This top brand started producing watches in the 1920s. Some of its notable creations for men include the Autoquartz Nomade Compass that doesn’t rely on battery. Instead, it uses quartz and for 100-day autonomy.
Rolex is another luxury brand that is considered top gun in the industry. Its quality was tested when Mercedes Gleitze wore the watch during his swim across the English Channel. Since then, the brand has been widely known for producing top quality products. One notable Rolex watch is the Oyster collection, which has been developed over the years. In 1945, the Oyster Datejust was invented, the first watch to automatically display the date. Of course, Rolex is never short of celebrities endorsing the product and willing to test its endurance.
Once known as the North American Watch Company, Movado is noted for its first automatic winding wristwatch, the Tempomatic, which was released in 1945. During the ’60s, the Movado Museum watch was released with its classic numberless dial. Today, Movado is still one of the leading luxury timepiece makers, and it seems that it won’t be changing anytime soon.
Recent advancements in technology have allowed these brands to develop, letting them produce top quality timepieces that are extremely fashionable for the 21st century, combining design and beauty at its finest.
