As much as you might be tempted to buy an Apple watch, you are probably better off splurging on a luxury timepiece that oozes prestige and class. Apart from the craftsmanship, you won’t have to ever worry about it going out of style, as they’re built to last. Think of it as a long-term investment and to make an informed decision, here are five to seriously consider.
