There’s no point investing in a high-end sports watch if you wear sharp formals day in and day out. Make sure that your purchase fits in with the life you lead.
Vintage watches can be a great investment, but you don’t want to shell out a small fortune for one that’s seen several trips to the repair shop. Research thoroughly, talk to fellow collectors and only invest in vintage watches that are in mint condition.
There’s absolutely no sense in purchasing the same type of watch twice. When building a watch collection, take the time to invest in one piece for every aspect of your life. Pick one for work, one for evening dos and another if you’re a gym buff, and only once you’ve covered all your categories should you go to picking another similar one.
When you pay for a watch, you’re paying for its features, but also for the brand value associated with it. While there will always be more premium brands in the market, picking a mid-level one ensures that you build your taste and your appreciation little by little.
In your mind, every watch is a work of art, but the question you need to ask is whether you’re going to be able to wear the watch regularly. There’s no point in investing only in delicate, ornate pieces if you’re never going to find a suitable occasion to wear them and will have to settle for admiring them from afar.
