If you are wondering where to buy watches online and luxury watches in particular …you have come to the right place. I am here to help you with your selection and point you in the right direction to make a purchase if that is your desire. Whatever, if you are just here to peruse the beautiful watches I have on display, you are free to oggle them at your leisure.
Of course this website is about top men’s luxury watches and if you see any watch on here that you like, you only need click on the image for more information. Let me assure you that by clicking on any of the watches here you are in no way committing to buy it. The watches are linked to a website where you can view more details about the watch, and purchase it if you desire. That website will open up in a new tab and you will still have access to this site. You will not have entered into any transaction at all by clicking on a watch image or merchant site banner ad here ok. Not going to happen.
Of course those online merchants do sell ladies watches also
They sell ladies watches, as well as men’s watches that I consider less than elegant and other merchandise. You are free to peruse such merchandise on those sites also if you desire. Once you have clicked any watch image, you may continue from there to investigate the other merchandise – or you can click on a merchant banner ad to do that if you wish (after an exhaustive viewing of my website of course).
Do you know that from just one of those sites I examined nearly six thousand watches to present to you seventy of the best men’s watches from there (best in my humble opinion of course – you be the judge). That is to save you the time and effort if you share a taste for the luxurious, beautiful timepieces & watch accessories. Those sites are huge, it can be quite exhausting. I was like a kid in a candy store at first, but after an hour or so I started seeing spots in front of my eyes. Then again some people like shopping, enjoy spending that time. If that is you, consider my website as your shopping entrée …then click on for the main course.
If there are any ladies visiting my website – sorry that do not have a selection of ladies watches to show you. Nothing personal – I have just got more than my hands full catering to the blokes, that’s all. I hope you will click through on one of the banner ads where (seriously) they usually have even more women’s watches than men’s.
Don’t get brain damage – here’s the heads up
Some of those merchant websites are huge, no joke. I don’t want you going in there and freaking out ok. There are so many options in there it can give you brain damage. That is why I am going to give you the heads up about those websites right now. If you click on the banner ad for ewatches for example:
When you arrive at that site, go to the top navigation menu and click MEN’S WATCHES …that will narrow down your search options by about half (there will only be about 5,000 or so to look at now).
You can select a brand in the left sidebar menu if you want to check out various brands.
Otherwise you can just start scrolling down and click next page at the bottom if you want to settle in for the long haul (there’s a lot of pages).
These watches on here are like nuggets of gold
Far as I am concerned, these watches on here are like nuggets of gold if you catch my meaning. I put in a lot of hours on those sites to pull out these bad boys to show you. “Cream of the crop” if you will, but of course it is only my opinion. Be fair though – that is what this website is all about. That’s what I keep banging on about.
Mind you, I don’t only display watches on here that are strictly to my taste, I do try to allow for what others may consider elegant and tasteful. Hell I even put one on here for the yachties for pete’s sake. Don’t really know that it qualifies as elegant, it is quite pretty (and I don’t mind a bit of sailing now and again, so what the hey). Can’t be too rigid.
What portion of what you earn do you actually spend on YOU?
All that other stuff – it’s ok. We all need a bunch of that “get by” stuff. What have you got though, a beautiful quality item, that you can hold onto, use it, look at it and get that warm fuzzy feeling: “This is really nice, and it’s mine”. Having something like that, it’s ok too – it’s really ok.
Marcus Aurelius (121 to 180 AD) – Roman Emperor and also considered one of the most important Stoic Philosophers reckoned that when you are in more affluent circumstances; “wear the fine robes and consume the best available food and wine”. When you are in less affluent circumstances; “wear any suitable garment and eat to satisfy your nutritional needs without feelings of self-pity or bitterness”. That is my interpretation, not an exact quote but the essence of something I read of Marcus Aurelius many years ago.
Many people think of stoics as ascetics who practice self denial.
I like stoic philosophy, a lot of people think of stoics as ascetics who practice self denial – taciturn, unfeeling and showing no emotion. Not so, a Stoic is a person who can endure pain or hardship without showing their feelings or complaining. A stoic does not choose to practice self denial and refrain from enjoyment or pleasure. Does not withhold expressions of tenderness and love from those they care about. Their way is to calmly endure pain and hardship they may experience. Endure – not choose.
Why would anyone choose to practice self denial if they have the means to choose otherwise? Acquire some fine possessions if you can afford them – why not. All those beautiful, well engineered and crafted desirable objects – why should they be for someone else and not you?
One expression I heard that I really agree with: “You have to be a good steward to yourself”. Practice good stewardship in this life – to you, who else is going to do it?
