For the average person, the most valuable possession they are likely to own is either their home or their car. However, when you buy any expensive or valuable item, you are encouraged to purchase insurance to cover you against loss, theft and/or damage. This includes anything from a laptop or mobile phone, to a bicycle or motorbike. Clearly, when it comes to luxury watches, the same logic should apply.
If you cannot afford to easily replace your golden Rolex, you should give serious consideration to protecting yourself by purchasing insurance for it. In most cases, standard contents insurance will only cover you up to a certain value for a single item, and this is often not enough to cover the value of a watch. So how can you insure your watch and what are the various options available to you? In this article, we try to explain all you need to know.
In January, at the Salon International de la Haute Horologerie (SIHH), Audemars Piguet unveiled their latest range of new watches. This year, the focus from the manufacturer has primarily been about giving face-lifts or visual adaptations to existing models, with one very notable and obvious exception.
Here, we take a closer look at the range of new AP watches for 2017 and how they differ from predecessors.
1. Royal Oak Chronograph 20th Anniversary
In order to mark the 20th anniversary of the original Royal Oak Chronograph, Audemars Piguet unveiled a total of eight new model variations, helping to give the collection a face-lift. All of these models keep the basics of the Royal Oak Chronograph 41mm, released in 2012, but the primary change is the switch to two-tone dials.
This means that every dial has sub-dials of a contrasting color, with options including black and white, white and black, blue and grey, grey and blue, blue and rose gold, and chocolate and rose gold. Three of the new models are available in all stainless steel, four are made from rose gold and one combines titanium and platinum.
When searching for a new luxury watch, $20,000 is a sizable budget, and one that will guarantee you a high-quality timepiece, which is sure to be the envy of friends, work colleagues and family members. Nevertheless, when you are spending so much money, it makes sense to try to get the best possible bang for your buck.
Below, we take a look at seven of the best luxury watches available to purchase right now for under the $20,000 mark. Of course, at Jaztime, we offer discount prices, which increases the range of watches available to you, and may be the difference between buying a stainless steel model, or a more up-market gold version.
For many women, luxury watches are more than just an attractive accessory; they are symbols of status and empowerment. However, while spending around $20,000 on a watch should guarantee a high-functioning, visually stunning timepiece, it is important to remember that some models provide better value for money than others.
Thanks to the discount prices offered by Jaztime, 18k gold timepieces are the norm at this price range, while many of the models are also decorated with diamonds, further adding to their allure. Here, we take a look at five of the best models or this price bracket, so that you can make an informed purchase.
1. Patek Philippe Twenty~4 Ladies – Ref. 4920G-001
The Patek Philippe Twenty~4 collection was introduced in 1999 as a modern re-imagining of the Gondolo. The dress watch has been designed for use in all situations and features a rectangular case, constructed from 18k white gold, which is bejeweled with a total of 34 factory diamonds, giving it a clear feminine appeal.
A total of ten diamonds down both sides of the dial serve as dial markers, while the final two places are marked by Roman numerals at the 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions. The case measures 32mm x 30mm, an ‘Eternal Grey’ dial helps to provide a classy and sophisticated appearance, while the watch is powered by a Quartz movement.

Have you been browsing for a new watch, but feel unsure about what size you should be looking to purchase? Rest assured, this is a common feeling. You want your watch to look good, but it also needs to feel comfortable. And if you pick the wrong size, you may attract attention for all the wrong reasons.
After all, the human mind has become accustomed to the concept of proportion, and we naturally notice if something appears too big or too small. Not to worry. Here, we have compiled a helpful guide, which will show you how to choose the right size watch to best fit your wrist and style, so you attract envious glances, rather than confused looks.
Measuring Your Wrist
Before doing anything, it is important to take a measurement of your wrist. This will allow you to establish where your wrist falls on a basic scale of small to large, and give you an exact measurement to provide us with when you order your watch through Jaztime.com, so that ultimately we can adjust the bracelet for your ideal fit.
The easiest and most accurate way to do this is to purchase a tailor’s tape measure. If you have a tape measure thats great, if not you can use our printable wrist measure. From there, measure around your wrist, above the bone, in the exact location where you would wear your watch. Take extra care to make sure the tape measure is neither too tight, nor too loose.
If you do not have a tape measure handy and if youcannot wait to purchase one, a simple trick is to use a sheet of paper, a tissue, or a piece of string. Wrap it around your wrist and mark the point where it overlaps, then use a ruler to measure the distance from the end to the mark you made.
As a general rule, 6 – 7 inches means you are in the small to medium range, while 7.5 – 8 inches means you are on the larger side. Any bigger than that means you are extra large.
With its rich history and instantly recognizable appearance, the Rolex Submariner is now firmly established as a legendary divers’ watch and one of the ‘go to’ options for those seeking a timepiece with excellent water resistance properties. Indeed, Rolex refer to the collection as the archetypal dive watch and even entry-level timepieces in the collection provide water resistance at depths of up to 1,000 feet.
Offering uninterrupted time display and a rotatable 60-minute bezel, which allows divers to easily and accurately time the duration of their dives, the watch is able to meet virtually any underwater challenge. Meanwhile, its Chromalight display offers supreme clarity and its COSC-certified calibre 3130 movement is fully shock resistant, guaranteeing precision timekeeping above or below the surface.
