Historical performance of watch investments
Recent media coverage such as these articles below well document the phenomenal returns careful watch collectors have seen over recent years. These returns have continued when other more tradition investments have suffered through global downturns, recessions, and other acts of God. Collecting and investing in watches is an area that is continuing to grow due to worldwide growing demand and shortage of quality supply.
Our portfolio of recommended watches can be tailored to your tastes and desires as well as offering the best chance of significant growth.
We are able to do this using years of experience, contacts and proven results. That is why we are happy to provide our buy back guarantee.
Much of this optimism derives from the performance of vintage watches over the last few years using reliable independent price tracking. This shows the performance of a typical collection of say 6 key pieces and how that historical trend could be extrapolated into future growth. As always it is not my intention to make rash promises, merely to show that a carefully selected collection could not only offer years of enjoyment but make your money work just as hard, and in some cases harder, than other forms of investment.
When you consider this purchase is backed by a no quibble three year money back guarantee I find it harder to think of a better investment for both the would be collector, seasoned horologist or even the clever investor looking to achieve some diversification. Below, we take a look at recent performance of a range of Omega Speedmaster models:
HMRC working for you
What also undoubtedly helps the current collector is that vintage watches are classed as Wasting Assets by HMRC, a delightful phrase that reflects the nature of their mechanical construction and the belief of HMRC that most mechanical items have a lifespan of only 50 years (I won't tell them if you don't!). All of which means any profits made on the sale of the watches are not subject to Capital Gains Tax! This simple fact makes the purchase and collection of Vintage watches a more than a sound investment.
