    Best long term investment...

    I would like the advise from some serious collectors at to which "Brand" of watch that they've collected over the years has appreciated in value the most.

    Despite most watches are no investment I tend to say Patek P.

    My advice would be that if you are wanting to see a return on an investment then buy shares. From what I've seen, the watches that will appreciate over time will cost you an arm & leg to start with. The majority of members here at WUS buy watches because we love the item itself, cost and resale value are quite often secondary. I would think that Rolex may be the most "affordable" watch where you may at least recoup the purchase price in yrs to come, maybe even make a profit if someone wants it bad. I personally never considered watches to be an investment, simply they are a way that we men can wear some "bling". Cheers.

    Rolex Daytona has gone up in price a lot over the years. However, most of the watches that do go up in price take decades to do so.

    I think the sole purpose of watches is to bring joy and be worn on a regular basis. If you seek safe queens, what does it matter if you have watches or shares or gold or cash or ... in your safe.

    To echo on the advice alexf71 mentioned, Buy an affordable (to your standards) watch to enjoy and invest in stocks the rest of your cash.
    The 1st Rule of WUS Club is: No Pictures - No Help.
    The 2nd Rule of WUS Club is: No Pictures - It Didn't Happen.
    The 3rd Rule of WUS Club is: Read the rules on top of the page.

    Some (more or less) rare Rolex models have increased in value compared to the original price.
    However, it is impossible to foresee which model that will be considered rare, or attractive in the future.
    I'm sure most original buyers of the redsub didn't have a clue.
    In fact, some of the original Comex owners I've met still use it as their daily beater and don't have a clue of what they are wearing. Or maybe they just couldn't care less?

    Perhaps if you specialized in true limited editions, rarities, etc.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be expensive watches either. Believe it or not, some of the recent G-Shock limited editions have soared in value (relatively speaking) because there are many collectors and the watches really are limited. So when the runs are sold out, the prices go up. In fact, I'd guess that on a percentage basis, some of the limited edition G-Shocks increase in value faster and higher than just about any other watch around.

    That's some really good advice. The reason I wanted to invest in watches is because unlike the stock market I can actually use the investment. I have considered investing in stocks but I don't like the risk. It would be nice to find a hobby thats a good investment.
    Maybe I should save my cash and buy land. Lol.

    Investment in watches? I would say a Complicated Patek Philippe. Maybe an ALS. But not one of the cheap ones. Top of line.
    Problem is - $$$$. No, $$$$$$$!
