Last year i had an unforgettable memory in Hong Kong’s watches shady shop.
It was a lesson that cost me $500.
While on a business trip to China, I got pulled into a back room and was offered five luxury watches for a steal.
They were counterfeit luxury watches. They looked really nice and I was tempted by the brand names on the watches – Breitling, Louis Vuitton, Rolex. And against my better judgement I violated all the sensible watch-buying rules ever written and paid $100 for each watch.
I have never worn those watches.
I wasted $500 that day – please learn from my mistakes in this article so you can make a smart buying decision when purchasing a watch.
You see, a quality watch isn’t just a tool that shows time.
A man’s watch is a sign of taste, where you are in life, and it’s something that shouldn’t be “faked”.
And let me be clear – any man can buy a great watch at a very affordable price.
But like anything stylish – what watch you wear is a reflection of your personal taste and the image you wish to project.
Own it – and feel great about it when you wear it.
So how to buy a quality watch at a fair price?
Whether you’re looking for accuracy of time, a fashion accessory or something you want to leave your grand-kids – here are my five tips that will help you purchase the right timepiece.
