We have been keeping track of time for thousands of years; artifacts from the Paleolithic suggest that people used the moon to keep time some 6,000 years ago. But timekeeping devices have come a long way since then as we have been developing better and more accurate devices throughout history. It is also true that over time, watchmakers have come up with better technologies, thus making a name for themselves in the process. And as a result, there are now a great number of reputable watch brands from which to choose when in the market for a pre-owned luxury watch.
