Watches have been among the most cherished gifts for generations and for good reason. Nothing symbolizes the passing down of family values better than an heirloom watch. Perhaps you are shopping for an upcoming wedding. Maybe you opted for eco-friendly and socially responsible koa wood rings to symbolize your commitment and love to one another. With the incredibly reasonable price of the rings, room seemed to be found in your financial allowance for another timeless gift and a watch is an ideal choice. Regardless of reason or occasion for giving, a carefully chosen watch is always a fine heirloom in the making.

Go for Timeless Styling

When choosing an heirloom worthy watch, you want a watch that looks classic and isn’t going to be out of style in five years. Select tasteful and classic styling. Remember, less is far more here. Classic and understated watches are definitely always in style.

Some High-End Suggestions

You don’t ought to spend a king’s ransom to buy an incredibly nice watch. Look carefully at vintage or pre-owned watches if you are with limited funds. They are often offered for a fraction of the cost of new models from the same elite makers (Lange & Son, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe and Jaeger-LeCoultre). While not in the stratosphere of the highest haute horlogerie, Rolex consistently make exceedingly fine watches whose reliability and overall quality are the envy in the industry. Even the most die-hard watch snob must admit that Rolex has emerged to the greatest purveyor of high-quality watches. Besides, Rolex is a practical watch that complements any attire which makes it a perfect heirloom watch. 

With a Tighter Budget

For heirloom quality watches, mechanical movements are preferred over quartz due to their perceived longevity. They will last centuries with regular maintenance and so are not dependent on electronic circuitry that can go bad (or go out of production). The German Stowa brand and the Nomos company both make very good watches for the money. Again, consider going vintage. An Omega Speedmaster having a 321 column wheel movement is timeless. It was good enough for NASA and good enough to go to the Moon. That makes it a secure, heirloom worthy gift. One advantage vintage classics have over modern choices: they’ve already proven themselves to be classics. Which will take the guess work completely out of the equation.

Don’t forget you can always get impeccable service for all your fine watches at Rolex service. They have Certified CW-21 Watchmakers on staff and give very competitive pricing.
