For thousands of years, people have found joy in collecting things that appeal to them. Archeologists often find small collections of crystals and hides showing that collecting objects has existed through all cultures and times. One such form of collecting has been gaining speed over the past few decades; luxury watch collecting. While this may bring up images of extreme wealth, cigars, and glasses of brandy, the truth is a shared love of horology has created a diverse community of passionate enthusiasts. Thanks to the internet there is a huge number of groups, forums, and social media profiles dedicated to collecting both new and vintage luxury watches. Because of this, many people from all walks of life have started collecting that would have never before been exposed to the beauty and artistry of luxury watches. At Karats Jewelers in Overland Park, we also share in this love of horology and want to teach others why luxury watch collecting is an excellent choice!
