I'm curious to opinions on real threats to future luxury watch value and appreciation.
In another thread a member argued that in the future technology like smartwatches poses a threat to future use and therefore value of luxury wristwatches.
I disagree, arguing that the luxury wristwatch has evolved into an accessory item rather than a tool.
In my opinion, the impact of volume and durability are much greater factors in affecting value retention and appreciation. The amount of durable luxury wristwatches being produced by so many brands will IMO at a certain point inevitably lead to market saturation.
I'm eager to hear your opinions on the subject. Please discuss.
