how to wear a luxury watch

To the layperson, wearing a luxury watch is like wearing any other kind of watch. You strap it to your wrist and go about your day as usual. To those of us who live and breathe inside the world of luxury watches, that is a ridiculous notion. We chuckle at the idea that wearing a luxury watch is so simple! Chuckle!

To anybody who's ever worn a high quality timepiece on their wrist, understand that there is an art to it. Or, in a way, a struggle. If you're not careful, the watch will instead be wearing you. In a metaphorical sense, we mean. The watch won't be literally wearing you. That's way too ominous and dangerous sounding.

But there are some key elements to wearing a luxury watch that will help you get the most out of it. First and foremost, you need swagger.

Swagger is an unmeasurable quality that projects confidence and self assuredness. It's an aura that surrounds you and lets everybody else know that you're exactly where you feel you should be, doing exactly what you feel you should be doing. It's effortless and smooth. It's also impossible to fake.

"But WatchMaxx, what should I do if I don't have any swagger?" you might be asking. That's the beautiful part. Wearing the right luxury watch will take care of that for you. That is, when you've found the perfect timepiece for you, then you'll feel it instantly when you put it on. You will discover the swagger within that you never even knew was there. That's why it's so important to make sure you're wearing the watches that you feel drawn to, rather than just picking up the shiniest one you can find.

Here are some other tips about how to wear your luxury watch.

Find the Luxury Watch That Calls to You

Like we mentioned above, it's very important to select the luxury watch(es) that are right for you. For instance, are you a lover of the yellow gold aesthetic? Then you'll probably want a yellow gold tone watch. Do you love the feel of leather on your skin? Then you'll naturally gravitate towards pieces with leather straps.

Of course, it's not usually as specific as that. Finding the best luxury watch for you means knowing yourself on some level. Are you a man that generally projects a sense of masculinity and toughness? Are your hands calloused from hard work? Then maybe check out some beefier and more industrial looking watches like a Breitling Chronomat or a Zenith Defy. If you're into sparkly and glamorous luxury that's bedecked with gemstones and glittering metals, then Michele's watches will certainly have you covered.

If you've always wanted to be a pilot and roam the skies looking for adventure, then you might be interested in one of Hamilton's Khaki Aviation watches.

Whatever it is that you know about yourself, the identity that you've crafted deep within yourself over the years, there is a watch out there that will fit that identity like a glove. Well, like a watch.

WatchMaxx has a huge catalog of in-stock and ready to ship luxury watches. Whatever you're looking for, there's a good chance we have it waiting for you.

Don't Wear Luxury for Attention, Wear It Because You Love It

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that luxury is for the attention, and envy, of others. That couldn't be further from the truth.

Remember in season 2, episode 6 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when newcomer Dana Wilkey had an embarrassing onscreen moment where she went into a braggadocious speech about how expensive her sunglasses were ($25,000 apparently)?

Really? Nobody else? Well, we're RHOBH for life, but we understand some people prefer OC or New Jersey.

Anyways, the point is that there are few things that incite cringe more powerfully than somebody who is obviously wearing luxury for the sole purpose of having people notice and comment on it. Luxury is above such things, and it is first and foremost for the person wearing it.

The right luxury watch will have you walking on clouds and feeling like a million bucks, and that is what people will notice. They'll naturally gravitate to you to bask in your confidence.

In other words, let your luxury watch do the boasting for you.

Take Care of Your Luxury Watch!

Luxury watches are like any other piece of jewelry in that they require care and maintenance. Remember, this is something that you'll want to have with you for a long time, maybe even passing it on to your children or grandchildren. Luxury is for life.

You should always have your watch serviced at least once every five years to ensure that it's running properly and to catch any small issues before they become big ones. These are expertly crafted machines of the highest quality, but they still need some love every now and then to make sure they stay ticking.

You should also avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures and situations. For example, if you're going to be spending time in a sauna or steam room, it's best to leave your watch at home. The same goes for diving or other watersports; water can cause all sorts of problems for watches. Sure, your Tag Heuer may boast of a 300 meter water resistance, but it's not something you'll want to put to the test.

In short, just use common sense and take care of your watch and it will take care of you.

Most Importantly, Enjoy It

Your luxury watch is an investment, both financially and emotionally. It's something that you should take pride in wearing and enjoy every time you strap it to your wrist. Whether it's a gift to yourself or somebody else, the most important thing is that you love it and appreciate it for what it is: a work of art that tells a story of time.

Luxury watches are meant to be worn and enjoyed, so make sure you do just that.
