Wristwatches have travelled far in time, beginning their journey in the 16th century as spring-driven portable mechanical devices. Till the early 20th century, watches were powered by a winding system where the mainspring would need to be routinely cranked to keep time, leading to the introduction of electrical watches that worked on electricity generated by the quartz crystal.
Quartz watches became the norm from 1960 on, giving the top watch companies the platform to create exceptional timepieces in attractive styles, shapes, designs, and colours. Watches now keep up with the ever-changing fashion trends and have progressed from a functional, practical necessity to a luxury item. Tommy Hilfiger watches are among the world’s top brands most popular, particularly among the fashion-conscious youth.
As per the norm in the fashion world, trends are assessed at the beginning of every year. The annual Geneva watch fair in 2022 featured some of the top watch brands that most talked about exquisite pieces.
As per experts and the common consensus at Watch and Wonder, Geneva 2022, some of the top luxury watches to buy in 2023 include the following items.
