Luxury Watch a Commodity or an Investment?

Post by koimaster » October 16th 2020, 8:11am

While they may come in a wide range of designs and styles, one thing that all luxury timepieces have in common is that they aren’t just your average fashion accessory. These are often items that have been part of a family for generations. Looked after and cared for in a way far beyond that even of someone’s favourite item of clothing or piece of jewellery.

In some cases, however, luxury watches don’t just come into someone’s possession through inheritance; in fact, the world of watch investment is growing.

And there’s a good reason for that; most luxury watches come with price tags that make the cost of some cars (and houses) seem irrelevant. Not only does this make them a sought-after item, but it also begs the question what occasions should these items be worn for, and in some cases whether they should be worn at all.

With that in mind, should a luxury watch be classed as a commodity or considered an investment? And if you’re on the lookout for a luxury watch what should you bear in mind?

But firstly, a brief history lesson. ... investment
