The 5 best luxury watches you can buy right now, according to an expert

Every man should own a wrist watch that is both stylish and functional.

Whether it be priced under $500, $250, or even $100, a nice watch can drastically improve your style, while doing its job of telling the time.

But when budget is less of a concern, luxury watches are options that provide much more than style and function.

Buying a luxury watch should be looked at as investment. Because of its superior quality, choosing a luxury watch will outlast lower-priced items and even has the potential to appreciate in value over time.

At Insider Picks, we like to judge products for their actual quality, not just the company who made it. With that said, there are certain name brands that dominate the luxury watch market — and they don’t come cheap.

Check out the five best-selling luxury watches below.
