Best Investment Watches

Today i want to talk about best investment watches.

We have all certainly thought about whether a valuable watch might be a good investment.

Before you can really understand which watches to focus on, you need to analyse the trend in the value of the watch itself.

A very quick and easy way to understand how to assess the performance of a watch “on the fly” over the years is through the Chrono24 website or app.

Simply log in and click on the “watch collection” button and then enter the model and reference of the watch you prefer.

Let’s take an example: the picture above shows the performance of the Rolex Submariner reference 16610.

Can this watch be an investment? The graph shows that the value (mainly related to used watches in good condition) has risen a lot over the years. In 2010, the valuation of this iconic timepiece oscillated between 3000 and 4000 euros, while today (2019) the value has almost doubled.

Therefore, the Rolex Submariner 16610 could be a very good investment. Obviously, one has to take into account the possible market fluctuations, but, on the other hand, in this specific case for about 10 years (maybe more) the value has always gone up: it will be difficult for it to drop drastically…

This is not, however, a matter of course or brand-related. Some watches, even of the best brands, have an anomalous trend and therefore are not as “safe” as they seem, obviously as an investment. Here is the example of the Omega Speedmaster Reduced which shows a non-linear trend.

In this case, we can see that the value of this model rose sharply in 2013 before dropping dramatically the following year and rising again in 2016.

I will soon be publishing a specific article on my site about the best watches to invest.
