Many women love to collect watches, and it can be an enjoyable pastime. But if you want to create an exceptional watch collection, there are some things that you will need to think about.
First, of course, the most important thing is finding the best quality at the right price point. And just because a watch looks good doesn’t necessarily mean that it is worth buying!
With that said, this article provides some tips on how you can start building your watch collection!
Collect for You
The first step to building a watch collection is deciding which type of watches you are interested in and how many. For instance, if you want to collect Omega timepieces, your focus will be on this brand only. Whereas someone who wants to collect Rolexes may buy other brands from time to time, but they will mainly concentrate their efforts on Rolexes.
A collector may decide to focus on a single watch company or buy from several different companies. Some collectors like the idea of not being tied down by one brand and thus have more freedom in picking up any watch that catches their eye. This is called an “eclectic” collection. It is good to look for brands that are not mainstream, and thus you can “discover” a new favourite watch.
Know the Story
Knowing the story of your watch is essential. A collection will not start to be interesting until you know the story behind it, and if this information is not in a listing, do some research.
Additionally, knowing where the timepiece was made helps determine its value. Knowing the history of a company can also help you make more informed decisions about what kind of watches to buy or sell. For example, Rolex produces more complicated pieces worth significantly more money because they are known for their innovation and quality. You can also learn more about their WatchBox collection to expand your knowledge.
Find Your Tastes
What type of watches and jewelry make you feel happy? Are there any colours or specific types that don’t appeal to you at all? Do people say one style suits me better than another? This can be difficult for those who haven’t taken much time to think about it, but once they know their taste, it’s easier to figure out where they should look for inspiration.
For example, some women prefer vintage pieces while others like more modern styles. Some gravitate toward bright jewel tones while others love pastels and metal bands with diamonds. Others go crazy over leather straps in every color imaginable.
It’s about finding what makes you happy. Once you’ve done that, it becomes easier to find the pieces of your eccentric watch collection and enjoy them more than ever.
Don’t Impulse Flip
Don’t buy anything without thinking it over first, even if you’re in a hurry or on vacation and want to get home with something (or there’s an 80% off sale). You might regret it later! To be a true watch collector and avoid regrets, you need to do your best at eliminating impulse buys and make thoughtful decisions.
