All brands like Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, Breitling, etc. are synonymous with luxury and elite style. Similar to high-end sports cars or expensive jewelry, these luxury brands are a classic item of glamour and affluence. You know well that the idea of them instantly conjures up images of grandeur and opulence.
The main aspect that sets the watch aside from other items of conspicuous consumption is that it is not 'consumed' per se, but can be conserved and handed down, collected or sold on. For example, years ago Patek Philippe watches have been with this slogan 'you never actually own a Patek Philippe, you merely look after it for the next generation'. The meaning of this is to stay with the spirit of the luxury watch as an item to be passed through generations.
Of course, it isn't a surprise that luxury watches have become collectibles. If when you have been a child you might have cultivated a stamp or coin collection, collecting watches is a way to continue that hobbyist pleasure in a more serious way and it is lucrative as well.
Collecting watches means to keep them in excellent condition or if you let them deteriorate, they will lose value rather than holding it. Essential factors in the caring of watches include careful wearing, as watches can be sensitive to water, atmospheric conditions, skin oils and perfumes (in the case of leather straps), and shocks and bumps. When you don't use the watch always ensure that it is in a dark, dry and temperature-controlled environment. Keeping the movement running and the date set correctly is essential.
When you start a watch collection, remember the first thing to look for is high-status brands which will hold their value. Rolex watches are the most famous luxury watch brand, and Omega watches are another good starting point because they start rather cheaper than brands into which you might move as your tastes and collection development, such as Audemars Piguet watches.
If you decide to buy watches, don't forget that they should be bought from the expert, trusted sellers like watchfinder.ca, and do your research, reading up on makers and models.
If you would like to reshape your watches collection, developing it in a different direction, or when you decide to sell some of your collected watches to free up funds and open up space to buy something new may be a difficult decision. This is because you are parting with something you love, and because of the dazzling variety of ways to sell watches. Choosing a great and specialized buyer is the right way.
