    Thanks for that.

    It's available online now as well - the segment on watches starts at 16:07 -

    UK sales of luxury watches have nearly doubled to 1.5 billion in the last ten years, but could the rise of so-called "smart watches" threaten that market? We examine why, in spite of new technology, many people still love a mechanical, high end luxury wrist watch.

    Listened to it, nothing of much excitement.

    I caught it and thought it was a fairly balanced but, inevitably, light-touch piece. Only comment I baulked at was the 'investment' one; they clearly edited out the 'if you're lucky...' qualification that must have followed.

    Why?
    Making money out of watches (anything) can be deliberate and easy. No luck involved.
    Here's how you do it.
    Have a decent amount to invest.
    Buy the most desirable stuff you can afford.
    At the right time (hoho) sell it for a lot more.
    Repeat.

    Yes I thought that when I heard it - it did allow an enthusiast or two to at least put the case and whilst I would never consider my watches an investment it is probably easier to "get lucky" than with cars etc.
