    Tudor Chrono - Is it worth keeping as a possible collectible

    I have a Tudor Chrono ...I like it a lot but it is not getting a lot of wrist time which has always tells me that it's time to let go. However, I keep thinking that Tudor will start in a small way, when compared to Rolex, toward price escalation ?

    Any thoughts ?

    Unlikely in my opinion. I think you are hoping that it will appreciate like the old Monte Carlo ref. 7169, https://www.tudorwatch.com/magazine/...s-1971-to-1976.

    Imagine how long (nearly 50 years) has it taken for that model ref to reach dizzying heights cost wise and compare that to a Daytona from the same vintage. I think the sharp appreciation in prices of a Daytona has a part to play in pulling up the prices of the Tudor Chrono. Let's not forget also that the early Tudor watches came with Rolex cases.

    I may be wrong in my assessment but that is my own opinion. Someone else who is more of an expert valuer or who works for an auction house may be better able placed to comment.

    … just want to add that you should enjoy the watch for what it is. Please do not expect it to rise as the disappointment is greater when you place your hopes too high.

    Nope. I had the same watch hated how tall it sat on my wrist and flipped it.

    I have it in blue and really like it - but I didn’t expect any appreciation when I bought it and still don’t.

    If the only reason you're keeping the watch is prospecting on value you might as well flip it for anything Rolex. At least you'll have a better chance at it.

    Not that I condone with the idea that value retention is any reason to owning a timepiece, any timepiece.

    Pretty sure these reissues will not be getting a lot up

    No history, nothing iconic about this watch. Unlikely to see a reissue anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong — it’s a nice watch just don’t expect appreciation anytime soon. The fact that you are not wearing it frequently may also be a hint...

    It’s a loose thread to hang onto but Tom wore one in a Mission Impossible movie. Can’t remember which one and don’t really admire him enough to look it up so yeah, loose thread to hang onto for relying on value appreciation.

    It is a nice looking watch but as you said, ‘... it is not getting a lot of wrist time...’ so IMHO, flip it for something you’ll love to wear.
