Swiss Made is not only origin, but also labels and quality feature. Today more than half of the world’s luxury watches are sold in Switzerland. In terms of quality, it is usually only the finest nuances that distinguish the Swiss watchmakers from each other. This is the reason why we do not usually decide on the basis of objective criteria for or against a specific watchmark but rather on “soft” factors such as the radiance or the image with which a manufacturer is associated.

Investment on Vintage Watches

The answer: Yes, definitely. At least in my experience. Because: Every Vintage watch, which I bought in the last few years, has doubled in value.-At least.

Various financial and watch magazines confirm the increase in value and advise to purchase as a financial investment, but rarely genuine and affordable purchase recommendations. While the editors of this magazine often shirk recommendations, excessive efforts the subjunctive, I would recommend a specific vintage watch. More precisely: a whole number from the 70s/80s. Watches, you can afford as a normal citizen.
