We all love luxury and classy watches, and we certainly often wonder why, say, Breitling is so much more expensive than some Casio model and how come we can buy 100 pieces of Superdry watches for the price of one TAG Heuer? They are all watches, right? Sure, the answer is yes, but what if we imagine it isn’t?

The well-known question is why luxury watches are so much more expensive than fashion models? The reasons are numerous. Often a luxurious and classy wristwatch can cost you as much as a good used car, and you can buy an average Casio watch with the savings you collected only last month.

Tradition, Materials…

The first essential feature by which watch brands known for luxury models, such as Breitling, IWC, Audemars Piguet, or Baume & Mercier differ from other brands are heritage, tradition, and prestige.

The above-mentioned brands can boast of a tradition of making watches for over 100 years, and the fact that they originate from the country of watches – Switzerland, also contributes to the greatness of their name.

These factors certainly affect the price, which differs significantly from the price of branded, fashion watches such as, say, Lacoste, or Armani Exchange models.

Factors that are determined to hold the price high, in addition to the reasons already stressed, are certainly the materials used in the production, which in terms of quality and durability far exceed those found within the fashion models of watches. That’s why your Zenith, TAG Heuer, and Rolex cost up to several thousand euros.

The production of such luxurious watches implies the use of materials of exclusively top quality, workmanship, and mechanisms, but it also includes highly skilled workers who make it. Additionally, the complexity and difficulty of their task are on a completely different level compared to making watches that cost under € 500.

The vast majority of serious, luxury watches from the world’s leading manufacturers have a precisely made automatic mechanism which, if compared to the quartz mechanism found in almost all watches with a lower, i.e. more affordable prices, clearly shows the reason for the amount of the price assigned to them.

However, it’s important to note that such watches of serious workmanship and quality cost so much precisely because the people who buy them are willing to pay that much.

If no one had ever set aside and paid € 10,000 for a new Breitling or Bremont watch, then such a high price wouldn’t have been sustainable. However, the fact that customers are willing to pay more for serious and luxurious workmanship, as well as for the heritage and tradition such watches possess, dictates the amount to be paid and maintain a high price threshold.

Marketing Masters

Another reason for the high prices of the watches we’re talking about is the fact that these are world-famous brands and absolute marketing masters. Whether celebrities actually wear the same models of watches they advertise in their private lives (considering their income, they most likely do) or don’t is one thing. But, precisely because these watch manufacturers are able to engage famous and impressive personalities as “ambassadors” of their brands, who add a touch of allure to entire collections and additionally maintain the high price level, gives us the illusion that someone we admire is wearing their latest watch model.

The world’s most famous manufacturers of men’s watches – Rolex, Breitling, and IWC – are such experienced blacksmiths that every watch model they design becomes incredibly ambitious and special. When we say that, we don’t mean only through representatives in the form of celebrities, but that the price of a watch – regardless of how high it is – ceases to be an obstacle and a person becomes convinced that he must have one such watch, leaving the price aside.

Collectible Items

Now, let’s focus on one other thing. Apart from being observed as fashion and status symbols, luxury watches can become collectible items of high value. And, their price will skyrocket in years to come according to a recent article on watches and investment, from casino.betway. We base this on predictions saying that an estimated price of luxury watches produced exactly by the most famous manufacturers – Rolex, Breitling, and IWC – will be beyond apprehensible by 2030.

Among the top 20 watches listed by this criterion, Rolex’s models occupy as many as 9 places. For instance, the price of a famous Explorer will jump to € 8,447 in the next 10 years. Cosmograph Daytona will have the highest price, speaking of Rolex watches on this list, in 2030. The amount of money that will be then required to pay for this model is estimated at € 16,359.

As for models of the other two brands from the “big three”, the price of Breitling’s Navitimer 01 is predicted to grow at €12,162. Portugieser Chronograph, produced by the IWC, will cost € 9,657 in 2030.

There are more brands on the list but they are overshadowed by Rolex, Breitling, and IWC. Tudor’s trump Pelagos will cost € 4,824 in 10 years, while the value of Omega’s Speedmaster is to be € 5,629. Let’s not forget popular brands such as Hublot and TAG Heuer because their models are also among the Top 20 watches whose price will increase by 2030. The price of Hublot’s Classic Fusion Chronograph will be close to € 12,000 (more precisely, € 11,938), while Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph, made by TAG Heuer, will worth € 5,782.

All Watches Show Time, but…

It’s also important to know that the price of such luxury watches is ranked differently: you can choose the TAG Heuer model for under € 2,000, or Hublot’s or AudemarsPiguet’s model, whose price is around € 26,000. There will always be one such watch for everyone’s pocket and taste because the choice is too wide – you can choose from different manufacturers that are currently more or less well-known on the market.

To conclude – there’s no one, real, and tangible reason why luxury watches cost so much more than fashion watches. It’s a combination of reasons that together make Rolex, Breitling, and IWC considered watches of superior workmanship and quality.

When you combine and consider the materials and method of manufacture, you’ll hardly be able to argue that any of these models of watches doesn’t deserve the price attributed to it, despite performing the same simple function as the Casio watch model for a much smaller amount of money – and that is to show the exact time.

The first thing reminding on manufacturing quality watches is Switzerland. And indeed, brands like TAG Heuer, Tissot, Tudor, Omega or luxury Rolex are among leaders when it comes to the watch industry. However, quality isn’t centralized solely in this European country. There are many high-quality brands on the market that are on par with Swiss made ones and also have a great tradition.

For example, Japan is one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality watches. Brands like Citizen, Seiko or Casio are among the most famous in the world and are distinguished by reliability, quality and durability. One interesting fact that shows that Japan is at the top of the watch market is that classic Swiss watches have embraced the technology that comes from Land of the Rising Sun. This is technology of famous quartz watches that completely replaced mechanical ones during the 1970s and 1980s. For this one and many more reasons, we decided to dedicate today’s text to the best Japanese watch brands. So, if you’re ready, let’s get started.

  1. Seiko

The first manufacturer to introduce quartz watches is the famous Seiko. Founded in Tokyo in 1881, this company has built a reputation over the years equal to that of Swiss watches brands. Indeed, Seiko brings you an incredible value for money. In the late 1960s, Seiko’s big rise began as they introduced the first watch that could be used while diving, then a few years later the famous Astron model which was extremely expensive as this was the first quartz watch to appear on the world market.

Another important thing about Seiko is their sub-brand called Grand Seiko. This is a part of company that produces high-quality luxury mechanical watches that are extremely accurate. During their production a special zaratsu technique is used which contributes to the increase of quality to the level of Swiss made machines. Basically, Seiko has a watch for everyone, regardless of your budget. Prices range from $100 to over $40,000.

  1. Citizen

Last year, Citizen celebrated the 100th anniversary of this great brand. Similar to Seiko, this company has really amazing models that have somehow changed the horology. For example, their watches from the Eco-Drive series are designed to never need the battery replacement, which is extremely efficient and environmentally friendly. Namely, the light reaching the dial is absorbed by the solar cells that serve to recharge the battery. This consistency in the work undoubtedly contributes to the incredible accuracy and durability.

In addition, Citizen’s Satellite Wave collection is similar to the one presented by Seiko and is tuned with satellites for perfect accuracy. As for the price, there is also a wide range of watches, so you can find the perfect one for $120 and even those over $2000.

  1. Casio

Do you remember the iconic Casio calculator watches that many used in math tests during the 1980s? From that period to the present, Casio has made a lot of progress all the way to the world-popular G-Shock series. These famous watches have world-time adjustment, GPS as well as Bluetooth sync among other things which makes them incredibly accurate.

However, the biggest feature of any G-Shock watch is that it is extremely resistant to shocks and falls (as much as 10 meters) and the battery can last up to 10 years. Pretty impressive features, right? In terms of price, the Casio is more budget-friendly than all the others we’ve mentioned so far, so it’s possible to find your new watch for $30, while the most expensive models are around $900.

  1. Credor

When it comes to Seiko, it is the company that has the most subsidiaries and their group includes a few big names in the Japanese watch market. One of these brands is Credor, which isn’t well known around the world, but that doesn’t mean that their watches are not quality. On the contrary, Credor offers superior workmanship and stylish design. The only drawback is the price of watches. Ranging from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars, Credor has an impressive selection of quality machines.

  1. Orient

Lastly, another member of the Seiko Group called Orient. This brand is actually a subsidiary of Seiko and is one of the youngest high-end brands in the Japanese watch industry. Orient was founded in 1950 in Tokyo. It uses the Seiko’s mechanisms and is therefore a very reliable. In essence, Orient offers a wide range of models that are made of high-end materials at affordable prices. Their product range includes watches from $35 up to over $2000.

The importance of cosmetic packaging

The cosmetic industry is huge and it’s growing. From makeup to skin and hair products, new brands are emerging daily and so competition is getting fiercer. It’s important for both existing and new brands alike to constantly come up with something new and intriguing. It can be a new formula, a new slogan, a new product altogether, or simply new packaging.

Good and attractive packaging is just as important as the product. It is the first thing users see and interact with when they buy the product and, in many cases, they will buy the product because of the packaging. Now, in the era of social media, appealing packaging is especially important. It’s a part of the experience and it has to be shareable. If you can’t make a good unboxing video, it’s not good enough.

That’s the harsh truth. The wow factor begins and ends with the packaging. The trends in the cosmetic packaging industry are changing and evolving rapidly and it’s crucial for the brands to keep up with them and stay innovative. Currently, the global cosmetic packaging market is valued at around 27 billion dollars and the number is expected to increase by 10 billion by 2024.

Current trends in the cosmetic packaging industry

– One of the main trends is that packaging is becoming more complex, intriguing, and innovative. They provide a great unboxing experience that can be easily shared and admired via social media. It’s all about a satisfactory and attractive unboxing from both visual and audial standpoint. It’s really cool to hear that nice clicks when you close or open a cap. Magnets are also becoming increasingly popular thanks to the satisfactory experience they provide.

– Besides providing good protection and elongating the life of the product, the packaging is also supposed to be ergonomic. It’s just another plus in the user experience area. The different and new applicators and caps are also emerging daily. Some packaging comes with a twist or pulls function just to make it more interesting and fun to use. Some of the excellent packaging examples you can see on this website.

– The use of interesting materials is also becoming popular. Using a simple and commonly used material doesn’t quite work anymore. Combining numerous different materials is the way to go. However, the big current trend is also eco-friendly packaging. That means something that is easily recyclable and is safe for both people and the environment. That also means using less material for packaging. Many brands are looking for ways to decrease the weight of glass bottles so they will require less energy to manufacture and transport. Bioplastic Packaging is also becoming more attractive to both manufacturers and consumers.

As we’re becoming aware of the problem of plastic pollution, we’re more likely to turn to some more sustainable materials and the research shows it’s most likely going to be paper-based materials. Paper-based materials are also popular among customers because they appear and feel natural and are a good substrate for high-quality graphics.
