But, that is not to say that all watches are made equal. While some brands walk their way into new technology, other take giant leaps into futuristic horology.
For instance, Rolex watches are known for ground-breaking Research and Development, for durability and also the fact that they never fail. Other luxury brands such as Cartier and Omega have similar strengths to boast of. To believe us, you have to check out some of the finest collections of these luxury watches at authentic retail stores such as Ethos Watch Boutiques.

Cartier: It takes years of hard work to build a brand and decades of consistent performance to bring that brand into Salon International de la Haute Horologerie, Geneva. With 13 new creations and 2 watch families launched this year itself, it has proved to the world it is a real watches genius.
As for the best collection for the brand title, we would assign it to Drive de Cartier. The Drive is an elegant, cushion-cased watch, slightly more conventional than the Cle de Cartier. What more, you may ask? It is available in various guises and comes with in-house 1904 MC self-winding movement. To sum it up, it is elegant, it is understated and you will love it.
Casio: The average Casio watch today is comparable to Apollo 11 as believe it or not it packs just as much processing power. And, trust us when we say that we don’t kid about watches!

Michael Kors: From dress styles to chronographs, this unstoppable fashion brand has made its presence felt everywhere. Right now, it is trying to break new grounds with intent to enter the smart-watch segment.
Michael Kors Darci is our pick for the best collection from the designer. Originally conceived as an evening and cocktail watch, it goes beyond that. In fact, it would be a sin to limit these dainty timepieces to evening-wear only as these can glam up any daytime outfit.
Rolex: It is one of the most powerful names in the watches world. The Geneva-based brand revels in many laurels but that is not to say it rests on them. At Baselworld 2016, it unveiled a swathe of alluring models including the covetable Cosmograph Daytona and the Explorer.
With a 40 mm case and the jazzy green detailing, the Air King wins its place as the best Rolex collection. The old 50’s font and the dial layout endows it with a timeless charm. It is hard to avoid this baby!
