Watches tip the scale as luxury’s highest-ticket accessories with good reason: Industry manufacturers such as Rolex, Breitling, Harry Winston, Cartier, Hublot, Omega and Panerai continue to raise the bar on style, craftsmanship and innovation.

Today watches demand their own trend reports, as companies merge tradition with modern-day appeal. For 2010, expect to see lots of steel, pink gold, alligator leather and precious gems.
