High-end watches are among the best cost-per-wear items in our wardrobes. Relatively affordable when compared with most other pieces in any given designer's collection, they are also one of those rare fashion accessories that most of us wear every single day - and when you pay for a designer watch you can expect it to last you over many years.

In our round-up for great 2013 watches, we've included our favourite fashion brands alongside the biggest heritage watch brands for the serious wristwatch shopper. Whether you're looking for an on-trend flash of rose gold from Michael Kors or Marc Jacobs - or a timeless timepiece from Mont Blanc or Burberry, we've selected the best for the coming season and beyond.

Prices in our round-up start at £129 and rise well beyond the £5,000 mark, so you should find something here to suit your budget if you're looking for an investment piece.
