    A bit like elaborate moustaches, vintage tattoos and half mast trousers worn with no socks were a few years ago-now look at them!

    Investment

    This wouldn't be for flipping short term, but more to justify another watch purchase.

    Obviously an impossible question to answer long term with trends etc, but of the current rolex line up where would your money go?

    My understanding of an investment is a medium to long term hold which delivers a five to six figure financial return, not buying some mass produced Watch in the hope of a couple of grand in profit sometime in the future.

    Sorry but modern watches are not an investment, no matter how we want to convince ourselves.

    Agreed. Buy what you love but if money is more important, or equally important, choose wisely. Canít go too far wrong with a Rolex at list or close to. Watches shouldnít be considered as investments IMHO, not least because it sucks a whole lotta fun out of this hobby.

    My white faced Daytona cost me £3670 which was the rrp back in the day , say I wanted to sell it pdq , I think it would realise at least £10k.

    I canít be bothered to work out the potential profit % , or the return on capital , but letís just say itís healthy.

    Regardless of how the current value has been calculated, how could you back up your statement ?

    Notwithstanding the pleasure I get from wearing it anyway.
