    • What are some other brands that can compete with Rolex and Patek Philippe in terms of quality and price range for luxury watches?
      In watchmaking, the manufacturers known as “The Holy Trinity” are Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, and Audemars Piguet. They are the pinnacle of watchmaking and horological history. Their watches are finely detailed and hand decorated.

      Notice that Rolex didn’t make the cut. They aren’t even in the top 5.

      That’s because Rolex doesn’t make luxury watches. They make excellent tool watches for which they charge luxury prices.

      If you want brands in the same neighborhood as AP, PP, & VC, t try these:

      A. Lange & Sohne

      F.P. Journe

      Roger Smith

      The special thing about Roger Smith watches is that every single component of every watch is built in his workshop, by hand. Case, hands, balance spring, dial… nothing is outsourced. You ordered you’re watching, then wait while they build it. From scratch.
