Younger Watch Enthusiast

Being a watch enthusiast myself, I always view luxury watches, like Perrelet, as an investment timepiece. High-end watches should be kept in the family and passed from generation to generation - which brings me back to Basel experience - I saw several young watch enthusiasts.

Seeing younger guests made me really proud because it shows that their fathers/mothers passed the knowledge to them about the labor, mechanics and craftsmanship that goes into a watch, like Perrelet. Even though we're in a tough economy right now, we shouldn't forget about family values like spending time with your family, teaching them the history of items people view only as an accessory and enjoying a trip to Basel :)

Also - in-between my editor meetings at Basel, my PR rep has been keeping me updated of online media hits. One he forwarded me really caught my attention as its from a younger blogger who appears to be a "fashion icon" within the younger blogging community.

Like I said, I've always viewed luxury watches as an investment timepiece, it's nice to see this as both an investment and a fashion accessory. To read the Male-Mode blog post, please click here.

Another article you should read is from Horozima, a great web site that informs readers about watches. They know their watches, as you can see with their recent Perrelet post. Click here to read it.


  1. Michael,
    Interesting post. I am included in that mid-twenties watch blogger age range and totally picked up the love for watches myself. Of course my father is proud, and I teach him about watches - so basically I picked the passion up on my own. How are you enjoying blogging?

    Its taking me awhile to get used to it. I have my PR guy who is in his twenties on blogging and social media. Some of the stuff is confusing and he's patiently teaching me. But it's easy to catch on.

  3. It is interesting that there are families that passed their interest in having luxury watch to their children. The children continue the idea of having high quality items especially watches that can be consider an investment.

  4. Luxer Watches is selling authentic luxury brand watches, with authentic watches offered with a 50% discount.
