Why Classic Watches are Here to Stay

| Wednesday, May 25. 2016

The Power of Tradition

With the Apple Watch and all of its competitors trying to dominate the tech and fashion industries, there has been a lot of talk about what this means for the classic designs. We are here to confidently say that classic designer watches will not be going anywhere. Here is why. Watches have been around for hundreds of years. They have seen and survived wars and technological revolutions. Given their history, all signs indicate that they will survive this technological advancement as well.

When you break down the overall design and functionality of these new watches, you will find they are inferior to the classic watch. The Apple Watch has tried to emulate the look of an actual watch. The face is square and has a crown that allows users to control what appears on the screen. It is impressive but the design itself is nothing to write home about. Many users have complained that their watches are thick and clunky. It is surprising coming from an Apple product, which is known for their sleek designs. The only saving grace is the fact that the material and bands are customizable. For those that truly love watches, the craftsmanship of the watch is what truly counts. Buyers spend their money because these pieces are so well-made that they will last for years.

There is also a lot of sentiment that goes into watches nowadays. Not only is it a stunning piece that can be passed down or spark a memory. Many classic watch wearers can recall their father's or grandfather’s wearing a watch when they grew up. It was a part of their being. That is why current watch wearers don them now.

Ultimately, a designer watch is a luxury item compared to Apple watches which is luxury technology. Over time, you will have to replace your Apple watch to keep up with the technology. Whereas a designer watch is a timepiece that never truly goes out of style.

At Finest Watches, we provide our clients with the best of what designers have to offer. From Patek Phillipe to Chanel, we have all of the designers you are looking for. Please peruse our site to seek our wide selection.

Watch Straps: How to Customize Your Watch

| Saturday, April 30. 2016

Is There a Right Way to Style Your Watch?

There are many fashion rules that should not be broken. For decades, women have matched their purses to their shoes and men have matched their belt with their shoes. Even watches have unspoken rules. Watch enthusiasts often wonder if they can have straps that do not match the face or dial. To supply watch wearers with answer, we must consider the various factors of a watch.

How to Style Your Watch

Luxury watches are more than adept at choosing the best strap for the watch. That does not mean you won’t want to switch it up every once in awhile to keep with the trend or to better suit your taste. Before you make the change, there are some things to consider such as the type of strap and dial. First, look at the dial and face of your watch. They both can come in a variety of colors or materials. For instance, a silver face with a silver dial is a classic choice. Sometimes the dial will have a black decoration which means you can choose a similar looking strap. There are various colors, finishes, and materials to choose from when shopping for a new strap. As stated before, you will want to look for a strap that matches the dial. Using the previous example, a watch that has a silver face with black dials will work with a shiny black strap or a silver strap. Often times, people want to add a bit if their own personal flair without breaking too far from the fashion rules. Those individuals can choose a snakeskin strap. Ultimately, there is nothing wrong with exhibiting your own personal taste with your watch. Be as conservative or whimsical as you want.

Designer Watches

No matter what your style is, there is something about the classic designs put forth by high-end watch makers. Audemars is a wonderful example of classic designs that never look dated. Here at Finest Watches, we provide our clientele with time pieces that are stunning- and will never be the cause for a fashion faux pas.

Guide to Gifting a Man’s Watch

Men’s Watches

In the modern age, many individuals use their phone or computer to check the time. You may think that because of this, gifting someone with a watch is impractical but you would be wrong as watches are still an important fashion statement. Especially when it comes to men as they are not known to be a wearer of any other type of jewelry or accessories. They make perfect gifts for any occasion, here is a guide to choosing the perfect watch for any man.

Guide to Choosing Watches

Types of Watches- Analog and digital are the two types of watches available. Each have their pros and cons. 1. Analog- These type of watches have a face with minutes or hands and are the oldest and most classic design. Designer watches tend to come in an analog style but more casual watches also come in analog. Due to their versatility, they can be worn anywhere. 2. Digital- The display on a digital watch displays the time in numeric form. Their display make them easier to read and more accurate than an analog. Digital watches are considered more casual watches and less of a fashion accessory than an analog. • Watch Movement- Watch movements come in 3 types; quartz, mechanical, and automatic. 1. Quartz- This is the least expensive option and most reliable by using quartz crystals powered by a battery. The battery causes the crystal to vibrate which in turn moves the motor. The steady rate allows the watch to run accurately. 2. Mechanical- A spring is wound to turn the hands at a steady rate. Keep in mind that they must be wound every few years to keep running. 3. Automatic- Kinetic energy is picked up throughout the day as the wearer moves. That energy is used to wind the spring and then unwinds to turn the hands. • Watch Size- The most important aspect to consider is the size of the watch which includes the band and face size. If you go too small, you run the risk of the watch looking like a woman’s watch. Men with thicker arms need a watch with a larger face to balance things out.

Watches: Fashion Item and Investment

in News | Tuesday, November 10. 2015

A Investment in Style

Many would think that spending so much money on a watch is wasteful but a true watch aficionado knows that it is an investment. Made from precious metals and gems, watches have a value that grows and declines based on a few factors. Despite any factors that cause a fluctuation of price, your watch will always be worth a fair amount. That is why watches are a great piece to invest in. Here is a guide to purchasing the right watch.

Aspects to Look for in a Watch

What makes certain watches collectible over others? That is based on the brand of watch, if it is rare or limited edition, and the style that is currently in fashion. The brand of watch can be a major factor in placing a value on a watch. Brands like Rolex and Patek Phillipe are two of the most well-known watches that will also increase in value. Rolex comes with the name recognition due to it being a favored celebrity brand along with having a great design. Patek Phillipe also has name recognition to an extent but it is more exclusive than Rolex because of its prices. Rare and limited edition watches increase in value, again, because of exclusivity. Limited edition and rare watches means that there are a small amount available to the public which makes them more appealing to collectors. It is simple supply and demand. Do not confuse collectible with limited editions and rare watches. Sometimes a watch toted as collectible is not wanted by the public due to design which only a few people may want. Trends influence every market out there, especially the fashion market. One year may call for watch with thicker bands and the next, thinner bands are all the rage. Be conscious of this when selling as it might be a better strategy to hold onto your watch for another year as the trend might turn back in your favor.

Rolex Watches Online

If you are looking to invest in style but have additional questions or do not know where to start, Finest Watches can help. We are fine watch experts who carry an assortment of high-quality time pieces. For more information, contact us at (888)313-8463.

Why Wrist Watches Won’t Go Away

in News | Friday, July 10. 2015

Always in Style

Our technological prowess has skyrocketed ever since the beginning of the 21st century. The gradual shift from analogue to digital has touched many facets of our society, which in turn allowed improvements and new capabilities. Phone companies capitalized on these capabilities and as cellular technology increased, phones with a display screen were able to tell time, thus lowering one’s requirement for a watch. As years passed, technology advanced until companies developed their own phones, tablets, and mp3 players to tell time. So, although one might think that the classic analogue wristwatch is a thing of the past, it is actually here to stay.

Impressions and Prestige

Everyone loves to make a great impression and one great way to impress someone is to show them that sleek wristwatch on your wrist. All of the luxury brands are known for their superior craftsmanship, good design and cultured past, which presents a status symbol for the regular Joe. Therefore, when we see someone with the brand, we tend to see them as affluent and seek to be affluent as well. Additionally, a lot of people tend to buy a certain brand of a product because of celebrities and actors in movies that use the product. This applies to watches, as well among other products.


In 2015, we have gained a mentality that our technology has become replaceable and so its value has subconsciously decreased. With classical wristwatches, we get a unique experience because they are strictly analogue, which increases our sentimental value of them in an ever-increasing digital world. Moreover, we know these watches are not made in a factory in China but are painstakingly hand-crafted by master watchmakers to make the intricate designs. This is why collector’s watches cost thousands of dollars, and in them, considered pieces of art.


Analogue watches have high durability and so they can span generations while functioning similar to when they were first crafted. This adds history to a watch, as it is passed down from one generation of family to another. But it doesn’t need to family related; being given one from someone famous or heroic instantly adds value to the watch. In fact, passing on a watch has become so popular because we pass the history of the wearer down on the next bearer who understands and appreciates that history.
Wristwatches will probably only go out of style when civilization ends. We place a lot of sentimental value in them as each trail we encounter engrains that memory in the watch for us. It has become a habit for us to carry a watch before we carry a phone and that will never go away. You can purchase a luxurious wristwatch by visiting Finest Watches.

Those Big Watches

Watches today are bigger than they were decades ago, and this doesn’t necessarily mean the watch case diameter, but the extent of its thickness or thinness. Usually, these larger watches would be seen on males rather females. However, women have been sporting big faced watches more and more. Instead of feminine timepieces, they opt for flashier and larger men’s watches. This trend has turned out to be more than just a fad, and perhaps you want to join the party. Well, here are some tips for wearing big-faced watches.

What to Wear

There are only a few things that separate a men’s watch from those of a woman’s. These things include clean lines, subtle designs, and occasionally rhinestones. However, since the oversized men’s watch on female’s wrist has become a classic, the men’s watch tends to look more sensational. What you wear with these watches, though, is just as important as when you wear them. For example, some watches would be better with clean and simple attire; maybe a few thin, delicate bracelets to remind you that you are female.

How to Wear

Though some brands make fantastic women’s watches, there are some companies whose male watches on females add to a streamlined appeal. Some watches can also be accented with different gem stones, especially once there are bracelets worn on the same wrist. There are also men’s watches that can be passed as big-faced women’s watches. The construction will look solid and sturdy, but it would be attractive and eye-catching. 

What Not to Wear

Many men felt less masculine when women started wearing their watches. They complained about women wearing watches that were bigger than the ones they were wearing. However, women felt even more feminine while wearing them. It was like they were stating that they were woman enough to be wearing the big-faced watches. On the other hand, big doesn’t always mean fashionable. Some of the big faced watches are simply tacky. There are also things that you should never wear with them. Avoid things like rubber bracelets, too many bracelets, spiked leather cuffs, two watches on one wrist, and jewel-encrusted watches that are as big as dessert plates.

While men’s watches for women have become the latest trend, be careful to follow the dos and don’ts that accompany them. When shopping for watches, visit Finest Watches to find one you deem fit.

How to Wear a Man’s Watch

in News | Friday, May 22. 2015

The Right Way

If you’ve recently purchased a luxury watch, then no doubt you’ve been researching for hours about things like brands, types, prices, etc. So what’s the next step? Well, showing it off, of course. However, if you don’t wear it properly, then all that research goes to waste. So if you want your watch to be the center of attention, here are some tips to help you wear it the right way.

The Fit

Your watch should be the perfect size for your wrist. Try not to buy one that is too big or too small. If you find that it is not the right size, you can always take it to a local watchmaker to add or remove links from it. Your watch should be able to slide down your wrist one inch, but no more. If it slides more than that, it is too loose. However, if it does not slide around your arm as your arm moves and leaves an imprint on it, then it is too tight.

The Wrist

Which wrist should your watch be worn on? Typically, luxury watches are worn on the hand opposite of your dominate hand. The watch should be place right at the tip of the ulna, which is the bone on your wrist that sticks out. However, some people like to twist the dial of their watch slightly towards them.

The Cuff

When wearing a shirt with cuffs, you may wonder if you should wear it inside or outside the cuff. Well, do not wear it outside or on top of your cuff. When standing with your arms at your side, your watch should be mostly covered by your cuff. If you wear it outside it may appear as though you are trying too hard to show it off. When your arms are folded, or bent perpendicular to the floor, that is when your watch should peak out of your cuff. This is common if you are working at your desk.

The When

When you wear your watch is dependent on the kind you own. A Patek Philippe Calatrava is a dress watch and should be worn at formal events with a suit. Dress watches usually have leather straps and a gold case. The dial is simple and not more than 41mm in diameter. The OMEGA Seamaster is a sports watch and should be worn during deep dives or physical activities. Sports watches have stainless steel or rubber bracelets. A sport watch can also be worn as an everyday watch. Usual everyday watches are stainless steel and can be matched with all casual clothing.

After spending all that money on a luxury watch, be sure to show it off right. To find the watch that’s right for you, check out the stock at Finest Watches.

Women’s Timepieces

Men aren’t the only ones who can wear nice, name brand watches. There are many brands that specialize in women’s watches. While any watch is practical, you should also think about the quality and design of it. You can find some of the most beautiful and durable watches from the following brands.

A. Lange & Sohne

In 1868, in the town of Glashütte, in the Ore Mountains, Adolph Lange established his watch-making industry. As the years went on, this brand is known for its craftsmanship. Since the watches are manufactured and designed in-house and on site, only a small number of them can be produced each year. A two-disc mechanism allows a feature that displays the date up to five times larger than regular watches. 


Louis-Francois Cartier founded Cartier in Paris in 1847. This brand was known to make jewelry for kings and world leaders. That was, until 1911; Louis-Francois’s grandson, Louis Cartier, helped in the launching of Cartier’s timepiece collection by introducing The Santos. This started Cartier’s rich history of fashion watch-making.
Apart from The Santos, Cartier introduced other watches that are still classics today, including The Bagnoir, The Tank, and The Pasha.


Chopard is known for still being an independent and family-owned business. It is also one of few watch companies that creates and controls its own timepieces and their movements.


Carlo Crocco, the creator of Hublot, grew up in an Italian watch-making family. In 1967 he designed his first watch and in 1980, he set up his own company. In that same year, he created the first Hublot watch, the first watch to have a natural black rubber bracelet.


Panerai is a Florentine company that was established by Giovanni Panerai in 1860. The initial production of the watches was designed for the Italian Navy, thus guaranteeing the timepiece’s quality was top-tier. However, due to their exclusive contracts with the Italian armed forces, the timepieces were not readily available to the public.


Georges Edouard Paiget first opened his business in 1874. In 1957 the company developed a new movement for a watch, which was a thin manual wound. In 1960 the company developed the thinnest self-winding in the world. Moreover, this company who is still in business also sells jewelry.

These are some of the popular brands of women’s watches. If you want to purchase a women’s watch as a gift for that special woman in your life, visit Finest Watches today.

Timepieces for Men

Surely you’ve heard of different luxury brands of men’s watches, but how much do you really know about them? Here is some historical information about the most popular brands.


Undoubtedly, this is one of the most well-known brands of all watches. Being founded in 1908 by German perfectionist Hans Wilsdorf, it was originally called Wilsdorf and Davis. Hans worked hard to improve the standards, and he achieved it. It has a consistency in its design over the years, and this is a somewhat of a trademark of a Rolex. Though only 650,000 watches are produced a year, it maintains its high standards. Rolex produced the first waterproof watch, the first watch to display time automatically, and the first watch that displayed two different time zones, among other achievements.

Patek Philipe

This company prides itself in quality and reliability with each watch having to go through 600 hours of quality control and then through testing and observation for 15 days to one month. Due to this, only 30,000 watches are produced every year.  Perhaps among one of the greatest accomplishments, Patek Philipe produced the first ever wrist watch in 1868. The company also created the first watch with a perpetual calendar in 1925.

Audemars Piguet

Jules Audemars and Edward-August Piguet were looking for jobs in the local watch-making industry when they met. Hence, Audemars and Piguet’s start in 1875, and registered trademark in 1889. They were successful from the very beginning and today they are one of the oldest manufactures that are still owned by the founding families.  Among their firsts is the first high-end sports watch in steel, and the first wrist watch with tourbillion and mechanical winding.


This company hails from the Swiss Jura Mountains, starting in 1833. They have been consistent among the world’s leading manufacturers of timepieces. In 1847, they invented the first crown winding system. The world’s thinnest pocket watch movement was made by them in 1903. In 1953, they invented the world’s first automatic alarm wristwatch.


This company was established also in the Swiss Jura Mountains, in 1884. In 1892, they relocated to La Chaux-de-fonds, which is the heart of Swiss watch-making. In 1915 Gaston Breitling created the first wristwatch chronograph, the first independent chronograph push piece in 1932. The year of 1936 was when they became the first official supplier to the Royal Air Force.

Vacheron Constantin

This is the oldest watch manufacture, dating back to 1755. In 1770 they produced their first complication watches. They have strived throughout the years, never letting up on their high standards of quality. They have played an important role in offering innovation and technology to the industry.

Knowing more about your favorite brand of watch can help you to appreciate it more. You can purchase a watch from any of these brands or many others at Finest Watches.

Tips for Purchasing a Women’s Watch

in New Releases | Friday, January 16. 2015

Finding the Right Women’s Watch

Gift shopping commonly proves to be a challenge. For ladies, watches are always a good idea. However, selecting the exact watch may be difficult. It helps if you know a few things about the recipient, but here are some more tips that can come in handy.

Matching Style to Setting

A watch should be able to match the wearer’s lifestyle. For example, if she tends to be active and outdoorsy, a sport watch would be best. Sport watches have rubber bands, digital interface, timer, stopwatch, GPS, and are good for running, hiking, and other sports. Casual watches usually have large faces, are without jewels, and the band is leather or metal. Dress and fashion watches have gemstones, but can have metal or fine leather bands, while fashion watches have their faces integrated into a bracelet rather than a band.

Match Physical Features and Wardrobe

While sport watches rely more on functionality, casual, dress, and fashion watches rely more on appearance. They should look good on the wearer, so matching them with her features and wardrobe are important. White watches are more suited for fair skinned women who tend to wear lighter clothes, while black watches complement darker colors and bolder physical features. Neutral tones, such as silver, go well with a variety of colors and physical features, and are subtler than black or white.


How proportionate a watch is to a woman also influences how it looks on her. Taller women should receive watches with larger face and wider bands, while smaller watches and thinner band complement petite women.

Interchangeable Bands

If you are looking for a watch with more versatility, you should consider a model that has interchangeable bands. Many watches have faces that fit different kinds of bands for different occasions. For instance, a leather band can make a watch look more casual, but a metal band gives it a dressier look. If you are torn between buying a casual or dress watch, interchangeable bands can be ideal so that she can wear her watch in different settings.

Consider Wrist Circumference

It may be difficult to get the exact size of a woman’s wrist if the watch is meant to be a gift. Therefore, opting for a leather or rubber wristbands is better than choosing metal because they possess a series of holes that can make it longer or shorter. Metal bands do not have this, and in order to make it smaller, a jeweler will have to remove a link or two. Though this is relatively inexpensive, buying and installing extra links often adds up.
Buying a watch for that special lady in your life is always a good idea. If you are looking to purchase a women’s watch, take a look at the watches offered by

Things to Consider When Buying a Watch

Things to Consider When Buying a Watch

Purchasing a Time Piece

Buying a new watch can be a thrilling process, especially if you love accessorizing. With so many different choices in styles, choosing the right watch may prove to be difficult. On the other hand, you may have already seen the watch you think is best for you. Whether you have a hard time picking, or are tempted to buy the best looking watch in the first store you encounter, considering these factors may prove to be useful.

Have a Budget

Watches can range from $10 to $1,000,000. Knowing how much you are willing to spend can help you decide on a watch. It is also important to remember that although expensive watches are beautiful, not every beautiful watch is expensive.

The Movement

The movement of a watch refers to the design of the watch’s inner working, or how time is kept with the device. Common movements include digital, automatic, quartz, kinetic, or hand wound. Hand wound is the least common as it requires constant maintenance. Digital are electronic and often don’t have moving parts. Quartz is second to digital in accuracy. Though automatic and kinetic tend to be inaccurate, a higher quality moment will allow for a more accurate watch.

Type of Display

There are two types of displays. The first and most common are called analog watches. This means that it has moving hands to show you the time. The second type is digital watches. These types of watches show the time using numbers displayed on a screen rather than hands. This type is powered by an electronic chip inside the timepiece. 

The Crystals

The material covering the face of the watch is called the crystal. They are made from a variety of materials depending on the brand and style of watch. For example, many digital watches have plastic based crystals and many analog ones have mineral glass-based crystals. All materials used have varying degrees of hardness and some are more scratch resistant than others.


When buying a watch, you will notice they come in many different materials. Pieces are commonly made form stainless steel, gold, titanium or silver. Though a watch may be advertised as valuable due to its material, the real value of a watch lies within the quality of movement. Therefore, do not let the material of the watch be the leading factor in your decision to buy it.


Do not rely much on the band of a watch when thinking of buying it, as this is the most easily changed feature. Also, the band has little to do with the value of the watch, just like the material it is made from. If you plan to use the watch in all sort of scenarios, including wet conditions, a metal or synthetic material is a better choice because leather or micro fiber bands do not respond well to water.
These few factors are important when choosing the best watch for you, or even as a gift to others. If you are looking for purchase quality watches, then you should check the variety of watches offer by Finest Watches.

Designer watches should be designed by someone with a world-wide reputation. These watches may sometimes look unusual. Lastly, sports watches are usually large, have bezels with prominent markings, are water resistant to some degree, and generally have thick, luminous hands and markings.


Before purchasing, you should learn some facts about the watch manufacturer’s reputation. You can do your own research by going online or asking friends or relatives who already own the specific brand you are interested in.

Places to Buy

The most prestigious watch brands are available only in authorized retailers. You can use an internet watch catalogue to choose watches you would like to buy. You can also go to the retailer’s official shop for details and the prices of a watch.

Right Size

The size of a watch has a lot to do with your body structure. If you have a larger structure, you may want to choose watches with large faces. If you have a smaller structure, beware of how larger watches might look on your wrist.

Water Resistance

A watch that is 100 meters deep water resistant will save your watches if they are worn during a workout or if you are caught in a rainstorm.

Life Expectancy

Stainless steel will last longer than leather. The life of mechanical watches can be almost infinite.

Any man in your life will be grateful for the gift of a watch, especially when so much thought is put into buying the right one. Purchase a watch from Finest Watches to show him just how special his is to you.
