Rolex, Vacheron Constantin, Piaget, Chopard, Cartier


Watches to men are the equivalent to handbags or shoes to women. They’re everywhere, but that doesn’t mean they’re all worth wearing. Men’s watches are a status symbol. Watches might not carry the same importance to women that they do men, but women who do wear a watch don’t necessarily want to wear one they’re not particularly fond of. They want classic, timeless luxury, which is precisely why these five designer brands are the most expensive, most sought-after in the world.
