6 Luxurious Watch Brands to Add to Your Collection

Q Report Team
Updated on October 06, 2022

Luxury watches are much more than simple fashion pieces, they are an age-old timepiece that demonstrates a person’s taste, prestige and personality.

Many high-quality watches can be found at decent prices, but for the true collector, the person who wishes to showcase suave, elegance and a keen eye for real classics – there are only a few must-have luxury watch brands.

Below we look at the top local and international luxury watch brands that you should add to your collection that showcase timeless refinement and distinction:


Top 3 Australian luxury watch brands

We believe in supporting local markets, but this doesn’t mean we are suggesting these brands just because they are Australian. These brands are bringing the best of both worlds: fashionability combined with functionality. These luxury watches are as suited for an awards evening as they are for a day in the outback, and the high rollers in the luxury watch industry are sitting up and taking notice:

Melbourne watch company (MWC)

Ultimate collector’s piece: Portsea chronometer

MWC describes its watches as “acclaimed, elegant, precise, sturdy and stunning”; they aren’t far off the mark. Every watch is named after prominent Melbourne locale, and they come with high-grade materials, smooth running and innovative designs that make them imposing competition with global appeal.


Ultimate collector’s piece: Terra Australis

“An Australian watch with a Swiss heart.” Bausele watches combine the finest Swiss operation with truly Australian aesthetics. Each watch contains native elements from Australia such as Opals, beach sand and Outback Red Earth that create an unmistakably Australian luxury timepiece.



Ultimate collector’s piece: Bunda limited edition

Australian designed and Swiss made, the Bunda range is a masterclass of everything that makes a limited edition luxury timepiece. Alluring jewels, enticing colours and a native Australian Opal inset make this a classic Australian beauty.

Top 3 international watch brands

The international stage has some of the most exquisite watches ever made and these timeless pieces are sought by collectors all over the world. These are the top international brands that you want to add to your collection:

Audemars Piguet

Ultimate collector’s piece: Royal Oak Chronograph

Audemars Piguet produces 36,000 pieces a year and is the frontrunner in prestigious watch brands on a global level. Timeless, elegant and elaborate – a collection isn’t complete without one of the brand’s signature pieces.

Vacheron Constantin

Ultimate collector’s piece: Patrimony Collection

Founded in Geneva Switzerland, Vacheron Constantin is an iconic brand, as well as one of the oldest. It’s part of the elite Richemont Group, and their precise details and classic designs make them a collector’s favourite. They are said to have been worn by historical figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Pope Pius IX.

Patek Philippe

Ultimate collector’s piece:

The Swiss brand was founded in 1851 and has been worn by royalty throughout history. They are classic, inspiring, unique, and have their own signature style that puts them in the same class of the world’s most distinctive luxury watch brands.

These are just some of the world’s most luxurious timepieces that will significantly increase the value and personal worth of your watch collection. A greater understanding of luxury watches will inform your own aesthetic. Watches are a not just a functional piece, but a unique individual branding that showcases your taste and character.

These high-value showpieces are worth their weight in gold, and we can’t highlight enough the need for quality insurance against theft and damage.

Look after your time. Look after your legacy.
