Top watch companies in the world

Top watch companies in the world

If you are looking for a wrist watch, you probably have an opinion on what characteristics, like design, material, type of mechanism and additional options you want it to have. You also might have decided, how much money you’re ready to spend on this accessory, but the toughest part, that’s still ahead, is choosing the one and only model from wide selection offered by the watch making companies.

Choosing a watch can be just as difficult, as choosing a car or high tech device. If you don’t know much about watches, it is highly possible, that you will need to spend a certain amount of time, studying general information about them and different watch companies, but eventually, you can still feel not confident about your decision.

There is a type of people, who don’t even care about the history behind the watch, in case if it attracts other people’s attention and works without a glitch. Regarding this, the post about the top watch companies in the world might be very helpful for picking the model from the most reliable and respected watch brands, or at least keep away from bad manufacturers.

Not long ago I wrote about 15 most expensive watch brands in the world and today I want to present a list of watch companies which is based on reputation of the brand, but not its incomes or sales.  Listed brands specialize on making watches for decades; there are no fashion brands that simply own a watch line.

    – Graham Watch
    – Parmigiani
    – Roger Dubuis

  5. I like Rolex watches and they are the BEST :) my grandfather wears Rolex almost 50 years and they works perfectly.

  6. What about Hermes, Glashutte, Gucci, Harry Winston and Casio?

  7. Bulova?

    Perhaps not as expensive, but known by many as decent timepieces.

    +1 on Bryan’s comment above.

  11. I am surprised that Seiko is not even mentioned in this list.In terms of technology and performance Seiko watches are far superior to 90 % of the swiss watch brands. What Seiko can offer at 1000 $ swiss watch companies cannot offer even at 4000 $.Seiko must be one of the top 5 watch companies.

  13. Wow! No seiko or Orient something is fishy. However everyone have their opinion.
