It goes without saying that most people will be well aware of the leading luxury watch brands such as Breitling, TAG Heuer and Rolex but there are just as many incredible high-end watchmakers on the market that you may not be as aware of.
When it comes to luxury watches, it is fair to say that one’s own choice of what they like is highly subjective but such is the quality of the craftsmanship and diversity of the luxury watchmakers out there, it is impossible not to find a timepiece which matches your tastes within their various collections.
So, if you’re after a luxury watch but want to be a shepherd and not a sheep following the popular and mainstream brands like TAG and Rolex, where do you turn? Well, rest assured, there are plenty of fantastic luxury watch brands out there to coax the money from your wallet and add considerable style to your wrist. Let’s take a look at three of the best luxury watch brands that you may not have heard of below:
B.R.M watches are a French brand famed for their motorsport and mechanical engineering inspired timepieces. They are certainly a little out of the ordinary so far as luxury watches are concerned as most of their contemporaries, such as Breitling, Baume et Mercier and Jaeger LeCoultre, tend to opt for more understated and classical style watches.
B.R.M watches certainly don’t subscribe to this understated look, however, and all their creations will certainly turn plenty of heads.
Alpina luxury watches are the perfect choice for those who live an active lifestyle. Alpina have been around for well over 100 years and in this time they have become recognised as one of the leading makers of luxury sports watches, such as the impressive Regatta timepiece from their sailing collection pictured.
One of the more affordable luxury watch makers, Alpina timepieces can be picked up for under £1000 but the more limited watches within their collections will often sell for over £5000. A stunning example of luxury watches for extreme sports and adventure aficionados.
Founded in 1860, Chopard are one of the oldest watchmakers out their but they are not currently amongst the most well-known. This is unlikely to remain the case for long, however, due to the immense quality of the timepieces that they produce.
Chopard watches boast style, sophistication and luxury in equal measure and the various collections which they are responsible for, such as the Happy Sport and Imperiale, are increasing in popularity all the time so if you want to make sure you pick up one of these stunning timepieces before they become as mainstream as the likes of Breitling and TAG Heuer, you better act quickly!
