These 10 Best Luxury Watch Brands You Can Possibly Own

It's true that nowadays we mostly count on our smartphones to check what time it is. However, as much as technology helps us on a day-to-day basis, in our books, it can never replace a good old-fashioned watch. Sure, a leather or metal strap watch is no cheap investment, but when you consider the shelf life of this classic timepiece, you begin to understand why despite having all the technology in the world we still turn to watches. Not only they're reliable and let you arrive on time (and in style), but by investing in a luxury watch, you can pass it down from generation to generation and nurture with it a lot of sentimental value. So, whether you're considering one for yourself, as an anniversary gift for your significant other, or for a family member, there's a handful of brands to consider.

However, in the world of watches, there are 10 luxury watch brands that stand out as the best. From the ones known for impeccably chic leather straps to brands that love a good diamond-encrusted watch, the watches ahead will make you want to accessorize your wrist and leave your smartphones for calls, emails, and social media.
