That is why a lot of vintage watches out there hold so much value just because of the intricate watchmaking that is involved in the creation of such amazing timepieces. If you are looking for the best watches to invest in right now, then you’ve come to the right article. I will give you four of my recommendations so do read the rest of the article to find out what they are.
Rolex is a household name when it comes to luxury watches and the infamous watchmaking company has a few different watch categories for you to choose from.
One of the most iconic watches in its portfolio is the Rolex Submariner. It is so iconic that James Bond wore them in some movies. Of course, its impeccable craftsmanship makes it the ideal divers watch back in the 1950s.
According to Simon de Burton, a renowned watch expert, he said that the Rolex Submariner is always going to be a worthy investment because it is a watch that you can wear for pretty much any scenario.
It is sleek, stylish, and it is robust in that it can be submerged underwater for up to 1,000 feet!
Another iconic watch worn by the master agent himself, the Omega Seamaster 300 has a sand-blasted black dial that is filled with rhodium-plated hands that are also coated by the company’s patented Super-Luminova material, allowing the watch to glow even in the darkest areas.
Most of the Seamaster watches from Omega are now mechanical in nature but if you can buy the Quartz variants, they can be a great investment since they are going to be phased out soon.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay
An automatic watch that is very sexy, the Heritage Black Bay line by Tudor is a stainless steel watch that is fitted with the company’s MT5602 self-winding mechanical movement with a bidirectional rotor system. I know that the name is a mouthful, but this is basically a power-reserve system that allows the watch to be powered for 70 hours without your kinetic movements.
The beauty of this watch is that you can use whatever strap material you like, although its default material is pretty sexy as it is.
Panerai Luminor Base
What makes Panerai watches highly sought after is the fact that most of their watches are just limited editions. Their Luminor Base watches, for example, looks like a chunky watch that still looks classy regardless.
It is one of the best investments you can make simply because the watch is going to be phased out soon and, therefore, making it more collectable than others.
