Now that a new year is coming up, what is one of the best ways to welcome it other than drinking champagne while watching fireworks? Treating yourself with a luxury watch, that is. But finding the perfect watch that fits your preferences is not easy. The volume of the brands alone can be overwhelming. Browsing through hundreds of brands and thousands of timepieces trying to find the one you might want to have on your wrist is such a task.
