I'm new to the idea of watch collecting but very interested in it. I'm a student now but I would like to start investing in vintage pieces to start building a collection. My research though has lead me to believe watches that arent from a few very collectable makers (Patek Phillipe, Zenith, etc) seem to depreciate rather than appreciate. It seems that unless a watch is over $10'000 it will have little change of holding it's value, let alone appreciate? What are your thoughts on this?
I have become fascinated in vintage 40s and 50s Omegas that retail for about $200 dollars, and since the majority of it is just in owning the watch but a small requirement is that it holds or goes up in value, would these actually do the trick?
