Of the many countries that have made a contribution to the luxury watch niche, Switzerland certainly stands out. There are some tremendously well known Swiss luxury watches that have become international status symbols for success and status. Rolex may be the most famous luxury watch in the world and its Swiss roots are a big part of the appeal of owning a Rolex. But there are some other lesser known Swiss luxury watches that are just as worthy of attention as that famous brand name.
Movado is a quality brand of Swiss watch that is certainly not as well known as Rolex but it deserves to be. You can pick a Movado Swiss watch out of the crowd because their design is simple and clean, background of the face is solid and at the 12 o’clock position, there is a trademark indentation. Sapphire crystals adorn a quality Movado watch which adds to the elegance as well as to the price. The Movado brand was launched over one hundred and twenty five years ago by Achilles Ditesheim. During that long history, customers have come to expect excellence that comes with the high price tag of this Swiss Luxury Watch.
|Tag Heuer Aquaracer|
TAG Heuer has been making quality Swiss luxury watches since 1860. One of the keys to the success of TAG Heuer watches is their connections in three big markets. TAG Heuer has become associated with popular celebrities in the Formula One Championships, in the World Championships of skiing and in Hollywood and other sporting worlds. The result is that TAG Heuer has become one of the quiet secrets of quality Swiss watch making. The signature luxury watch of the TAG Heuer brand is the Monaco Calibre 360 LS Concept Chronograph which has won awards for excellence. With a price tag that can run anywhere between $1000 and $8000, while still expensive, makes it more affordable than some of its Swiss counterparts.
|Breitling Bentley Motor|
When talking about lesser known Swiss luxury watches, the name of Breitling has to be included in the discussion. Breitling grounded their feet in making quality watches for the Swiss aviation industry. When they branched out into the luxury watch world, much of that orientation remained. Some aviation features that many luxury watch owners like about a Breitling include a double chronograph and a moon phase display. Because these functions are attractive and functional, the tie in between an aviation watch and a luxury watch seems to work beautifully. Like other high quality Swiss luxury watches, the price tag for a Breitling can be breath taking. For those that can afford that price tag, the beauty and style of these amazing watches is breath taking as well.
