    If I knew the answer to this I’d be buying them for myself.

    That's why mechanical watches will remain desirable, just like a ring and other jewellery.
    A smart watch lasts only as long as the battery and those only have 1 year warranty.

    I am also thinking about buying the Seamaster 300 new model as an investment watch, but I notice the used market price is always below msrp, so I havesecond thoughts about the investment watch. I have also asked around and most ppl tell me to get submariner.

    Of course it's below msrp. There are lots of them out there.

    I read speedmasters from 1970/71 are a good buy now.

    I'm hoping my PO LE will hold its value, but I have my doubts.

    planet ocean anything, as long as its its got a full set and no deep scratches. You can get any minor surface damage polished out for $100 and it can add a lot more value to the watch. Omega's typically run great too. with long periods before service is needed

    You think so? I never saw the PO as an investment to be honest. Not a brand new one.

    Probably the safest bet would be to buy a gently used Speedy Pro (the basic model) and just enjoy it. Those rarely go down in price, but they also aren't stupid expensive like some stainless steel tool watches.

    I promised my wife no more watches for years and years and years. She is an accountant, maybe I can sell the Speedmaster idea to her as a investment.

    The risk is the Australian economy. When our dollar was on-par with USD I bought many watches from the USA. The ones I sold, I made money on. But with our dollar much lower than the USD, its an expensive exercise. The US economy is being managed better than the Australian one it sees but one day, our dollar may go up again. If our dollar does go up, any watches Australians buy now would turn out be a bad investment.
