The difficulty of obtaining a luxurious men’s watch
An accessory that denotes style in most men is the watch, a fundamental piece in any type of style, especially that of high-class men. For many of them, choosing a watch is as important as choosing the car of their dreams.
The world of watches is practically infinite, every year we see from unique designs more accessible to the most luxurious, exclusive and limited editions that tend to cost a high sum of money, that many collectors would give their entire fortune in order to obtain them, many of these limited editions are the Patek Philippe Aquanaut, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, or the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, but to be able to obtain these famous unicorns, the buyer will be in luck and that the distributor is willing to give it to them.
Some of the watches most coveted by collectors today
These luxurious watches also called unicorns, for being practically unique and rare in their style, are highly coveted by every collector, although even if they have the monetary base to be able to obtain them, if they do not manage to enter the list of candidates by the distributors, they will not be able to get it.
But when we talk about high-class watches, we refer to the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, with a design that contains a lapis lazuli dial and a titanium case, which in the auction that was held in China in 2020, broke the record, and marked an amount of approx. 26 million dollars. With this in mind, we refer to these unicorns as those watches that contain a concept of anomaly and scarcity in their material, in addition to the drama that includes being able to enter in the waiting list, of more than 8 years, being the Swiss brands which stand out more.
But if we want to know about other renowned watch designs that fall into this concept of unicorns, we could name the steel sports watches belonging to the Rolex brand, such as the Submariner or the GMT Master II and those of Patek Philippe such as the Nautilus, and the Royal Oak that saved the Audemars Piguet brand from oblivion.
How to aspire for these hard-to-get luxury watches
The delivery of these so special and rare watches, of which there is more demand than supply, is directed by authorized distributors, of course this is not just anyone who can be delivered, it is not a type of watch that you can get in a boutique, and it is a type of accessory that stands out for its exclusivity. The collector can fight for their favorite edition for years, although they has a close relationship with an authorized dealer, it does not assure the obtaining of it, and if it were obtained for sale reasons, it could be blacklisted and not be able to get one in future years.
An advantage that these companies give is that of a waiting list, which many enter, but end up falling into frustration, due to the waiting time, since this can last for years, since these watches fall into the concept of exclusivity for its limited manufacture. The most recommended option is patience when entering this waiting list and wish to be lucky enough to be chosen by authorized distributors to obtain them.
