There are many variations when it comes to luxury watches. On the one hand, you have the crème de la crème of the haute horlogerie world; on the other, you have the luxury fashion brands who are coming out with its very own version of a luxury timepiece. Unfortunately, most luxury fashion watches are part of the brand’s accessories line at best, giving it a rather bland look as compared to the Swiss watchmakers.
Being a famous name on the runway, many luxury fashion houses are known for its cutting-edge designs but the same can’t be said for its accessories. The New York Times has quoted vice president of commercial business of Farfetch, Stephen Eggleston, “Creative directors are getting involved not just in ready-to-wear but in beauty, fragrance, watches and jewellery.”
Changing the outlook of how luxury accessories are viewed these days, it allows new-age fans to actually connect with the brand without having to fork over a small fortune for another item like a dress, a handbag, or even a pair of shoes. What’s great about luxury fashion watches is that it’s a lot more accessibly priced as compared to luxury timepieces, especially if it’s one of the more household names in the world of watchmaking.
Here are the list of five luxury fashion brands with its own signature collection of timepieces one can consider. Of course it would not be of the same calibre as that of a Swiss-made watch, but it does hit all the right notes in terms of quality and design.
