Luxury watches are expensive, but we love them. They are worth our love and attention. The art of buying the right one is knowing what you are paying for. “Not only is the way a mechanical watch is manufactured extraordinarily labour-intensive, demanding a level of craftsmanship seldom found beyond the valleys of the Swiss Jura Mountains, but just a little TLC will mean your wristwatch will tick for ever, potentially accrue in value, even”
