I'm amazed at the resale values of the Rolexes - I've been told that they actually appreciate in value over time. Do other makes hold or appreciate in value as well? e.g. IWC, Brietling, Omega,etc
I'm a total newbie at this.
I find most of the Rolexes to be really butt ugly. But there are a few gems in amongst the lot.
IWC, Omega will lose lots of money once u let go but these are high quality timepiece too as compare to R**** some even better.
I owned an Oris since 4 years ago...i can sell it at the price that i bought today ...thanks to the agent keep p the retail over these years.
it all depend...and many pple nowaday for mid range not common known brand..good quality n be different.
I wonder what makes IWC/omega better than Rolex when they are tweaking 3rd party ETA movements for the lower and mid end watches? Rolex runs on full in house movement and few companies are able to achieve that deed alone. Not forgetting Rolex pioneered the 1st water resistant watch, 1st watch featuring self winding movement, 1st watch featuring date on dial, 1st watch with 2 time zone, 1st watch certified as a chronometer. And no one has as many certified chronometers as Rolex to date.

A 14060M although not chronometer certified is the exact same movement used the explorer1 which ironically is a certified choronometer. The 14060M being almost the same price or slightly dearer depending where you buy.
In terms of accuracy, a digital casio does better timing than a seiko 5 or a rolex. Owning a watch is more about a personal preference. One can argue one brand over another, i guess its within comfort zone how much one is willing to pay for a watch.
