Four Names to Remember

In the world of luxury watches, there are a few names that virtually anyone in the world would know. While popular brands like Tag are certainly among the top brands for quality and craftsmanship, there are four major brand names that everyone should know. Not only are they world-renowned for having the finest watches, they are also among the top names for collectors and connoisseurs.

International Watch Company (IWC)

The IWC has been creating luxury timepieces in Switzerland since the 1860’s and has built a reputation for being perfectionists when it comes to precision in timekeeping and design. Each IWC collection, or “family” as they label them, have a unique style and design that appeal to a wide range of people around the world. From their Da Vinci inspired line to their vintage and military pilot styles, there seems to be a story attached to each piece, making it special to anyone who owns it.

Harry Winston

Harry Winston is the famous figure who donated the stunning Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institute. He is also a man well known in the luxury accessory world for having impeccable taste for jewelry and watch designs. The beauty of his designs lies in the fact that he is able to perfectly disguise some of the women’s watches as glamorous bracelets and cuffs but also offer a sleek sophisticated design for men as well.


Ranked as one of the top prestigious jewelry brands in the world, Piaget is another Swiss-born brand that has been in the industry since the mid 1870’s. The company first began creating accurate and detailed timepieces but then introduced their ultra-luxury line of jewelry and watch combinations. Always keeping up with the times, Piaget is also known to be a trendsetter in the fashion world by releasing exquisite pieces that match perfectly with creative flows in the industry.

Franck Muller

Based in Geneva, the Franck Muller brand is perhaps best known for the unique and eclectic Crazy Hours watch that playfully has the watch arm skip around the almost Dali-inspired face each hour. With collections that appeal to sophisticated minds and those who are young at heart, the quality craftsmanship is easily viewed among the best. Compared to the other top names in the business, the brand is still very young and yet perfectly capable to compete with generations of luxury watch makers from around the world.

All four of these amazing manufacturers create timepieces which are truly unique. Each are at the top of their game and owning one of their pieces is a wonderful accomplishment.
