Are secondhand watches inferior?

Sunday, April 22, 2018

Vintage watches refers to timepieces between 1920  and 1985. An article in the WSJ attests to their continuing value.After 1985 they are considered contemporary and may be labeled "used" or "preowned" after its first sale. However it can prove to be a great buy. Rolex watches have incredible resale power--and the rarer the watch or high end --the better (i.e. Patek-Philipe ). I've long held that men's watches  are sexy on women and a youthful look. Sharing watches with your spouse or significant other--is economical and fun  (so long as you respect and maintain them to insure their acending value).
