For those who don't look at alt.horology on usenet, this posting today might be of interest:

Please read:http://www.businessweek.com/lifesty...+lifestyle+subindex+page_living+well+features

and discard your poorly marketed Japanese brands as a good investment! :)

The nerve ??? !!!As with cars, radios and assorted other "collectibles" over the years, I've generally lost money on all of them (especially cars!) but never looked at them as investments anyway - just enjoyable "things". Probably why I'm not "rich" :)

Cheers! Hamish.

The focus of the article is on investing: "you either buy vintage, or you buy incredibly rare and special pieces". It misses the point that investment value is also strongly driven by condition. To make money in watches you have to buy new at wholesale or have an exceptional eye and deep pocketbook for the used stuff.

I'm not into investing in watches mostly because it would take the fun out of it. How boring to put money into a watch only to store it in a vault and never wear it. :eek:
