As antique watch popularity rises so too does the price so investors are asking, is it a good investment? The industry has shown some extreme examples of vintage and antique watches gaining a dramatic increase in value such as Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona and some Patek Philippe watches. Lower end vintage watches will also increase in value therefore making a good investment as long as you know what to look for when buying a watch. Consider the movement of the timepiece as well the materials and condition it is in. Limited editions and watches with more complications are more rare and will garner a higher value. Two solid watch Brands that make for wise investments are Rolex and Patek Philippe but ultimately it all comes down to the brand, condition, exclusivity and demand that make or break a watch as an investment.
Looking for a nice, well made pocket watch, simple looking, & will be valuable in years to come.
