Best Watch Investments
Village Watch Center Responds to Recent Discussion on the Value of Vintage Watches
At Village Watch Center of Boston we strive to stay connected to the industry and collectors' market so that our customers and those that visit our site have the best and most current information on vintage watches and clocks available. We buy near mint used Rolex watches, we sell Rolex watches, we offer Rolex watch cleaning, and provide our customers the best Rolex watch maintenance. This gives us an intimate knowledge about the quality of these products and allows us to react to and properly evaluate changes in the buyers' and sellers' market.
We were interested by a recent analysis done by Time.com in an article which discussed in general terms the idea of watches as investment and the specifics of Rolex’s within that discussion. This was of particular interest to us since we offer vintage watches and all types of Rolex watches for our customers here in Boston.
Rethinking the Idea of Investment
The article mirrored much of our own thinking here at Village Watch Center. Mechanical watches and clocks are pieces which hold value. Unlike some investments though, there is not really a model which allows a collector to buy low and sell high. In many cases, the best that can be hoped for in financial terms is to break even. The real value of the investment is in the enjoyment it brings the customer through a quality piece.
It's Still about the Rolex
The market on watches and clocks can be shifted dramatically by the actions of even one collector. That makes such changes difficult to predict. Mechanical and vintages watches are still the pieces that maintain their value over time. Rolex still leads the field in this value and in consistent excitement among collectors.
Come see us at Village Watch Center of Boston for all your vintage watch needs. Let us show you what we have to offer you when it comes to the investment in a quality watch.
