Choosing the Right Designer Watch

Designer watches make great gifts, for friends and family, or as a treat for yourself. If you are considering buying a designer watch, then the following article explains some of the things you should bear in mind.

Women’s and Men’s Designer Watches

Men and women both have very different requirements when looking for a watch. Often, men will go for a big, chunky watch, with plenty of ‘bling’. Women on the other hand, will usually go for a watch which is much smaller and discreet, adorned with diamonds or crystals for an elegant look.

How to Spot a Counterfeit Watch

Whenever you are planning to buy a branded watch, you should make sure that it is a genuine product. It is very important to identify fake watches and to find the ways by which you can be protected from such fraudulent deals. There are a number of counterfeited watch companies that are manufacturing such watches so ingeniously that nobody can easily recognise that it is a fake.

Counterfeiters are producing imitations of all famous luxury watch brands that are sold worldwide. You can’t get an authentic warranty by getting certificates with same serial numbers in an accurately professional manner. It is very easy to copy boxes, bags, kits, and instruction manuals in an ingenuous manner so that nobody can believe it is a fake product. Rolex is one of the brands suffering at the hands of counterfeiters.

Before buying a genuine watch, you should check whether the materials are genuine, and that the watch comes with a sapphire crystal face and back, without any scratches. The materials used in the manufacturing of the watches will tell you the reality.

How Rolex Watches Stand in a League of Their Own

There is little doubt that the relentless cycles of fashion trends affect us all, no matter if we are ‘fashion conscious’ or not. While some people worship the current tends, trading colours as the seasons progress, noting what hairstyles footballers and celebrities bear so they can mimic them, others claim to have no interest in the passing styles that grip catwalk and pavement alike – yet there is no escape. Whether we like it or not, the clothes, shoes, belts buckles and accessories we wear depend on a select few – those that decide what the shops will sell, and there is no denying that this is a decision based entirely on what is ‘in’ this season.

Watches are no exception to this consumptive force; at the moment a rich, vibrant blue is making a comeback in watch dials right across the market – a pleasant cooling sensation to counter the hot summer perhaps. With so many people influenced by high-profile celebrities that cannot afford to be ‘unfashionable’ (think snide remarks from women’s magazines), fashion is a force to be reckoned with; one that few manufacturers can risk ignoring.

Of the major watch manufacturers, few can safely bypass fashion trends if they wish to survive. Of those that can, the name Rolex instantly springs to mind. Rolex watches are a marvel to look at. Part of the reason that they are so iconic is the fact that the company has found an enormously successful design and stuck with it; a Rolex made thirty or forty years ago is not worlds away from its modern counterpart. The subtle differences in a Rolex’s appearance as it morphs over the years have as much to do with security and technology as to do with aesthetic improvements.

Save Your Money by Buying Used Rolex Watches

Whenever it proves difficult to own a new designer Rolex watch the only choice men and women have is to settle for a Used Rolex or a replica whichever is admired. Either way, the individual is able to save up cash or to have a desirable item within their budget abilities. Dealers of these products have nowadays flooded the industry for watch and jewelry and people are really paying for them.

In that case no one making this decision is alone and similarly they must not think that the products they get are not worth the same classiness of owning a new watch. If only it were possible everyone would get these but unfortunately Rolex prices are too exorbitant and are afforded by the loaded few.

If the goal is buying a used type then it should be different from a replica because it is made by the original brand only that it has been won before. In other words, everyone wants to be sure that they are actually buying an authentic used Rolex timepiece and not the fake replicas that occupy such a big share in the markets. Think about the type of the old watch desired in terms of if it has the latest style and features or it is the classic model and check with various dealers to find out the stuff they got.

Selling Your Old Rolex Watch

Selling a Rolex watch, particularly if it is an old piece, is sometimes painful to its owners. This is particularly true if the owner has a long history with the watch. Parting with it takes a lot of fortitude and determination. So it is important to make sure that once you decide to part with the watch, you get a good price for it.

There are several factors that need to be considered in selling a pre-owned Rolex watch. An important consideration is the tightness of the band. A tighter band typically brings in more money than an older looking, worn out, loose band. The condition of the dial is critical as well. Remember that original dials are valued more than refurbished dial. This valuation is true even if the original piece is not in tip-top shape.

Of course, the materials used in your Rolex will be considered as well. Most buyers typically look for watches made of white or yellow gold, 14k or 18k, platinum, and even stainless steel. Also, take note that buyers pay a premium if you have the original box and papers with the timepiece.
