A luxury quartz watch is the ultimate fashion statement for the individual who wants the status symbol status that comes with owning one. The high cost of these watches has been the subject of much speculation for years, mostly by those individuals who are knowledgeable about luxury items and watch trends. There is no real benchmark for measuring the price of a luxury quartz watch. Each individual collector has his or her own price range, but there are some general rules that may be applied. Some collectors will only pay top dollar for a luxury quartz watch, while others would pass up on even a basic luxury watch without hesitation.
Quartz movement watches are built to be much more precise than other brands of watch movements. This precision is what gives the luxury quartz movement its edge over other watch movements made by other companies. Many top grade mechanical movements were used in the construction of the luxury quartz movement. Because of their precision engineering and exact workings, they require much more precision than other brands of watch movements. Other watch movements that are similar to luxury movements are regulated via quartz movements that employ a second wheel, which has two separate mechanisms that work in tandem to maintain the accurate time display.
Luxury quartz watches also utilize high quality mechanical movements that are constructed out of platinum, gold, titanium, or silver. A luxury brand that makes use of high quality mechanical movements construct their timepieces tends to be more expensive because they are built to last. This does not mean that every luxury brand of watch is of high-quality craftsmanship, as there are many very good craftsmen whose only job it is to make the luxury items look good. When it comes to a quartz movement being constructed, watchmakers make use of high quality parts to manufacture the timepieces, which tend to be more expensive. However, when it comes to the materials, both quartz and metal watch movements are high quality and the metals usually have better resistance to shocks and vibrations that are common in most professions.
Luxury quartz watches will be priced according to the amount of precision and craftsmanship that went into the product. Most of these mechanical timepieces will have some type of unique feature that sets them apart from the other watches. The more mechanical features that are present on a timepiece, the higher the price will be. However, if a high quality piece of jewelry is being purchased, there is no reason to break the bank to acquire it. A person may want to purchase one of these timepieces because they have an inherent interest in the mechanical aspect of quartz movements or they may purchase the timepiece as an investment.
These luxury timepieces can come in any design. Some people like to choose a simple digital watch to add to their wardrobe, while others like to have more complication with their watches. The more features that are present on a timepiece, the more the price will be. Usually, a person will pay a little more for a luxury quartz watch that has more functions than one that has only a minute hand, and some will even choose ones that do not even have a mechanical movement.
