The exceptional level of craftsmanship, with the premium quality of the materials, ensures that the luxury watches are able to function for a very long time.
Generally speaking, if we have had a great year at work or we have achieved our goals, it’s good to reward ourselves with a beautiful watch. This way, every time we see our watch, it will remind us of what we have achieved and what we are capable of. With that, here are luxury watches that we can reward ourselves after that big accomplishment.

With a combination of an ultra-thin case and an enamel dial, it gives the Master Ultra Thin Moon a very refined luxury watch. You can see the stunning piece of craftsmanship when looking at the dial. The date display has a frosted finish, with the numbers 1 to 31 slightly raised from the background.
The Master Ultra Thin Moon is 39mm in diameter with white gold used for its materials, and it also comes with alligator straps. It features functions for hours, minutes, seconds, moon phase, and the date.

Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01
The Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 was the first model to reflect the design direction for TAG Heuer. The case of the watch is 45mm and is made up of several components that are combined. It has a separate middle case, bezel and four individual steel lugs that are joined to the titanium-carbide coated case.
Looking at the watch, you will see the skeletonized dial. It has polished silver sub-dials at 12 and 6 o’clock, with a darker metal sub-dial at 9 o’clock.

If you are unfamiliar with a new watch that you just bought, some of the functions might be a little confusing. You can search for how to wind a watch on the internet for setting the time, or you can also look at the manual and other guides on many reliable websites.

It gives you an extra 12-hour display that is located at 9 o’clock so you can keep track of another timezone, and two hemispheres at 12 and 6 o’clock that shows you the local times across the globe.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 43mm
The Sea-Dweller is linked to the history of dive watches. After WWII, sport diving and other recreational activities became popular. Then, Rolex collaborated with a diving company to create a feature called ‘the helium escape valve’, which later on became the hallmark of the Sea-Dweller.
Today, the new Sea-Dweller has a large diameter of 43mm. It has a wide bracelet that features a Glidelock and Fliplock extensions that enable the wearer to adjust it to fit over the diving suit. It is also fitted with Rolex’s newest movement; Caliber 3235, which features 14 new patents, more anti-magnetic components, and a 70-hour power reserve.

A luxury watch is elegant and beautiful, and wearing it on your wrist will surely make you stand out from other people and it will also make you feel good about yourself.
