When you look at the price tag of designer or luxury watches, you may wonder what makes them so expensive. There is no doubt that they are built with the best materials and the best crafts, but how much better than the watches that are sold for much less? The fact is that much of what you will pay is the name of the designer.
For many years, luxury watches have been considered as symbols of wealth and success. The fine craftsmanship of luxury watches has made them more than just watches. Popular brands of luxury watches such as Rolex, Cartier and Gucci evoke admiration and respect. In recent years, we have seen a greater demand for these luxury watches, and demand is expected to increase.
Below, I have listed two examples of how much a luxury or designer watch can cost. In no way do these examples represent the most expensive watch of each designer? (I left them out to avoid the shock.)
Gucci Ladies Watch: Price $ 49500

Pressure test at 1000 feet. 31 movement chronograph jewel. Synthetic Sapphire Crystal Close fliplock and extension link. The date is displayed at the 3 o'clock position. Rolex model number 16613.
What about the replicas?
If you are wishing to have a designer watch but are afraid to even look at the price tag, replica watches might be an option. But first, here is a note about the replicas: Replicas are elements that have been designed with the inspiration of famous designers. There are manufacturers of legal replicas, as well as manufacturers of illegal replicas. I will try to explain the difference.
A manufacturer of legal replicas will produce and sell an item with similar quality and design, but will not use the name of the designer. They will make it very clear that it is just a simulation. On the other hand, an illegal replica maker will produce and sell items that look like designer brands and try to pass them on as authentic using the designer's name.
Therefore, if your reason for wanting to buy a luxury or designer watch is based on the craftsmanship and prestige of owning such a watch, but you cannot afford one, you can consider a replica that offers the same quality at a fraction. of the cost
