Next, we will switch gears and compare the similarities and differences between designer watches and luxury watches. The first thing we’re going to look at is the desire to wear designer watches. If one of your goals in wearing a watch is to try to show your social status, then both designer and luxury can do that, although a luxury watch will obviously convey a higher level of social status than a designer watch. The important point to remember here is that if your goal is to use your watch to connect with people who are more successful than you (which is better than most people realize), a designer watch will not do that for you. So, from this perspective, you can look at luxury watches as an investment, while designer watches are strictly a liability. The next area to look at is the quality of movements in designer watches versus replica luxury watches. As mentioned earlier, most designer watches have a quartz movement, which means it is battery powered and therefore have no value at all from a resale standpoint.
Luxury watches, however, are equipped with automatic movements, made by master watchmakers who have spent decades perfecting their craft. These automatic movements have intrinsic value and therefore hold their value very well as long as you buy the right brand and model at the right price. In fact, some luxury timepieces are equipped with so-called tourbillon movements, in which case the watch essentially defies gravity and winds itself. Watches with tourbillon movements usually start at $10,000, and many are in the $100,000 range. For the vast majority of people, a tourbillon movement will be out of their budget, so in this case, an automatic movement will be what you want to pursue, as it will still hold its value, but can be bought in the $3k to $5k range for a more reasonable price.
Production Numbers and Scarcity of Designer Watches vs. Luxury Watches
The last area we will analyze is the quantity and scarcity of production of designer watches replica versus luxury watches. Generally speaking, designer watches are mass-produced in a factory with machines. Designer watches can usually be purchased by any consumer in any normal sales channel, such as retail stores, online, etc. Luxury watches, on the other hand, are handmade, with master craftsmen taking months to create a masterpiece. Since luxury watches are handmade, production is obviously limited compared to designer watches made on a conveyor belt.
