Our Favorite “Guilty Pleasure” Watches


26729597 - man with suit and watch on hand

We all have our guilty pleasures: little indulgences we treat ourselves to when we just want to embrace life and surround ourselves with comfort and class. While we truly value and stand behind every watch we sell, we will admit to nursing a soft spot for a few select watches. These timepieces are standouts both aesthetically and mechanically, proving you CAN have the best of both worlds! A “guilty pleasure” watch doesn’t necessarily translate into “utterly out of your price range”. In fact, some watches are a guilty pleasure simply because they don’t fit the mold of traditional haute horology. Take the ToyWatch Jelly Looped Blue Plasteramic watch- we adore the playfulness of the silicone body and the understated but eye-catching color of the relatively cheap timepiece, despite its obvious exclusion from the luxury watch circuit. Here’s a few more of our not-so-secret favorites:

ulysis final










Ulysse Nardin GMT +/- Perpetual 18k Mens

This timepiece exudes authority, class, and impeccable taste.

Notable Features: Hardy solid white gold body, automatic movement with perpetual calendar, Swiss Automatic dial movement, and water resistancy.

What makes the pleasure “guilty”:  The price tag. A watch for the avid collector.

patek phillipe final










Patek Philippe Twenty-4 18kt White Gold and Diamond Womens

This timepiece holds true to the Patek Philippe promise of a multi-generational watch.

Notable Features: Solid White Gold Case and Bracelet, Luminous Hand indicators, Dazzling Diamonds on case and on bezel (totalling approx. 1.10 carat), Scratch Resistant sapphire crystal, Water resistant to 25 meters/80 feet.

What makes the pleasure “guilty”: White gold and 1.10 carats total in diamonds? We plead guilty as charged.

raymond final










Raymond Weil Tradition Steel Watch Mens

Though lower priced than the latter, the simple, easy-to-read, open face of this timepiece have made it a long-time favorite in our company.

Notable Features: Date display at the 3 o’clock position, Scratch Resistant Sapphire Crystal, Crown engraved with RW Logo, Swiss Quartz movement, Water Resistant.

What makes the pleasure “guilty”: Though some may raise their noses at a simpler watch, we still think you can’t beat the “Tradition” in simplistic elegance.

And here’s the best news: these timepieces (as well as many other discount luxury watches) can be yours before the weekend! Browse our collection now and find your next guilty pleasure!
