5 Great Watches To Start Investing

To help you get a better idea of what kind of watches will make a good investment, take a look below for our top 5 models to get you started.

Rolex Daytona 116508 ‘John Mayer’

Rolex is the most famous luxury watch brand and for good reason. Their long history of producing high-quality, highly desirable luxury watches is well documented.

The distinctive green dial of the recently discontinued Rolex Daytona Green Dial 116508 is one of its most enduring features. The 40mm case is made from 18k yellow gold and the gold hands and hour markers stand out beautifully.

An 18k yellow gold Oyster bracelet tops off this stunning design. Take a look at our recently sold Daytona Green Dial 116508 or contact our sourcing service to find one here: RC Watches Investment

Can I wear an investment watch?

The condition of a watch will play a significant role in its value. Many pre-owned, worn watches can rise in value if they are well looked after.

If you are buying a luxury watch purely for investment purposes, you should ensure the condition remains as good as possible. These should remain preferably unworn.

Do I need a box and documentation when investing in a watch?

The documentation of a pre-owned watch helps to prove its authenticity. A watch without its papers or a box will be worth significantly less.

Are Rolex and Patek Phillipe the best luxury watch brands to invest in?

Our top picks include Rolex and Patek Philippe, but there are other luxury watch brands that can make worthy investments.

Researching the market will help you determine the best investment watches to suit your needs.
