So, if you’re looking for a timepiece that’ll provide fashion and function for years to come, you can’t go past the world’s most lavish watch labels. Unbeatable for their sophisticated designs and precise manufacturing, these names ooze prestige and magnificence. Here, we’ve rounded up the best luxury watch brands you need to know.
Milus recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. After a brief foray into international ownership, the brand is once-again Swiss-owned, under Luc Tissot, of the Tissot watchmaking dynasty. As such, the brand is refocusing on innovation, beautiful design, and advanced manufacturing. One stand-out from the collection includes the Snow Star, the original of which was issued to US Navy pilots in the 1940s. Another is a 70s-inspired dive watch, the Archimèdes by Milus, which is designed to operate in all conditions.
