Top Things To Look For In A Luxury Watch Part- Entry Level Luxury Watches

There are number of luxury watch brands out in the market with distinguishing features and high class material. In order to know about these watches, you must read the Replica Watches Reviews to probe into such watches. There is a huge difference between online shopping and shopping in market. It is easy to find authentic products in nearby markets because physical appearance can help you to pick the best one. But the world of internet is full of scammers and most people are deprived from their money by them. Reviews are very useful in this regards because to can read the views of all the customers of the particular product. In this article, we will share the basic features of an entry level luxury watch. These watches are placed in $300 or above price point.

For $300 and up watches

There are varieties of watches included in this category. $300 may be a big amount for some while for others the money may not worth so much. If you belong to the first category then you need to be care as they are important things to look for. But this is just a single list and there are many other things that should be considered in a decent watch.

1.    Sapphire Crystal

A watch crystal is a transparent cover present on the face of the watch. Crystals are made from the different materials for over years, but only few are the most used ones. There are mainly two types of crystal found in watches that are synthetic sapphire crystals or mineral glass. Mineral crystal is cheaper and also offers one benefit over sapphire crystal that they don’t shatter when struck hard. It means that they may crack but they will not shatter in worst cases. On the other hand sapphire crystal is rare and also occurs with a very harsh impact. The watch with thick sapphire crystal refers to the potency of the timepiece. Sapphire crystal is a serious scratch resistant one. You can see the elegant watches with beat-up cases and flawless crystal. Sapphire crystal is thus more desirable over mineral crystals and must be preferred in majority of times.

2.    Solid Metal Construction

Everyone wants to get a timepiece out of a solid metal but do you know how cheaper watches cut costs. Grade 316L stainless steel should be used in making steel watches. Also the bracelet links and watch case should be made of solid pieces of metal because many manufacturers have folded metal or other hollow material. You can easily tell if the bracelet is solid or not by inspecting its side and if it looks as one solid piece. In entry level luxury watches, cases are mostly made from the fewer number of pieces and also most metal is used. It means that other materials like plastic or others are rarely used in watch making.

3.    Swiss Movement Or Japanese Movement

No other watches manufacturer can compete with Swiss made movements but only Japan is known for making decent watch movements. Indeed all watch movements are not created equally. Swiss movements come from Ronda or ETA especially the quartz movements. Japanese quartz movements come from makers like Casio, Citizen and Seiko. But these countries are not the only manufacturers of movements; you can find other movements at such price points. If you are not interested in Japanese watch then try to find the watch with Swiss movement. Though there are Chinese movements available but they are not reliable like the above two movements. One thin more, never go with mechanical movements at this price point, just stay with quartz movements.

4.    Solid Feeling Construction

In order to get a solid watch, you need to check the strap or bracelet fitting to the case. Put the wristwatch on your wrist and check the clasp or buckle operations, they should be smooth along with nice action. The buckle or clasp should not feel poorly or flimsy sized. If the watch features a rotating diver’s bezel, just twist it around and observe the movement it gives in a resting position. A decent watch should not any noise after being shifted around briskly on the wrist. For the very same reasons, Swiss manufacturers make best metal bracelets as compared to other ones such as Japan.

5.    Designed by True Watch Manufacturers

Just imagine about two people designing the watches. One is carefully managing the watch features as timepiece, while other is only concerned about the appearance of the watch. The elegant watches are always designed by using fundamental watch design principles. The alternative is the fashion watches with fabulous appearance but they have vestigial design cues. In a worst condition, the watch with poor function and poor design. The watches may have missing chronograph sub-dials, fake inoperable measuring scales, erroneous markers on dial and too short or wrong size hands. You may want your good looking watch to function as a move prop. In order to have best watch, you need to carefully look at the dial and all other features of it. This is one of the serious problems in the watch world nowadays but believe me, you will be proud that you find the watch by taking sometime which was actually designed to be a quality functioning instrument.

6.    Locking Deployant (Metal Bracelet)

Cheap watches with metal bracelet have a single locking clasp. This is a type of bracelet that just clicks into place. The perfect metal bracelet has the “double or triple locking clasps.” The triple lock has a push button in the mix. The double locking clasp are also available with a push button rather than of a fold over flap. In short, a good watch has a reliable bracelet which can survive in all conditions.

7.    Weight

Watch weight is one of the prime aspects. Some people love to wear heavy watches while others want to have light ones. In expensive watches, people want materials like titanium which is light weight than steel but in entry level luxury watches, weight is a sign of quality. Though titanium is also available in this category but with this price level, you will only get the watch with nice crisp quality appearance with steel. As we mentioned above, often times weight signifies the solid construction using a reliable quality steel. So, it is necessary to feel the weight of the bracelet and case to justify your investment.

8.    Signed Crown and Clasp or Buckle

A good watch maker carefully design the watch with perfectness. You can find the watch makers name on four places which are face of the watch, crown, case back and strap buckle or deployant clasp. They are also popular as “signed crowns or buckle clasps”. In the entry level luxury watch category, there are various types of light laser engraving. Expensive priced watches have graphics and logos done in relief. Cheap watches have deployants and bare crowns which indicate that such parts are taken from a parts bin and are far away from personal touch.

9.    Good Dial Lumination

All watches don’t have illuminating dials that glows in the dark. The feature is commonly found in classic or formal watches. However, all sports and casual wristwatches have some type of luminant applied on the dial and also on the hands. There are various qualities of luminant. Some are so impractical that should not be used. There are luminant that charges comfortably when exposed to sunlight or room and glows for hours. Japanese have the ability to make quality luminant. Watches with tritium gas tubes are best alternative for luminant. The timepieces are made by only one Swiss company and glows automatically for about 25-30 years. It is not hard to find tritium gas tubes as many known brands use them. But most watches you find will feature luminant. Try to find watch with large surface areas of luminant applied richly.

10.     Consistent Pricing

There are discount offers available on many watches to draw the attention from quality to quantity. Prices are often below retail which leads you to pay the actual “consistent street price”. For instance a $500 watches is available with $400 price at many watch points. An authorized dealer tags a price of $400 while unauthorized deal charges the same one for $250. The situation is alarming for many people with the value of the watch. This is known as “inconsistent pricing”. If you want to look for the consistency, don’t vary wildly from one seller to another.
