One of the more common questions I am asked is how much of an investment opportunity do vintage watches really represent? It seems the consensus of most observers and commentators is that the market is as buoyant as it has ever been and there are good reasons for supposing it will continue that way for some time to come.
An appreciation of vintage items of any description is undoubtedly on the rise, fueled in no small part by the disposable income of baby boomers and generation X who are, in the main part, enjoying significant birthdays as well as unprecedented levels of wealth and appreciation for the art of mechanical expertise. What’s more the golden era of the mid part of the 20th century is undoubtedly the sweet spot for a great many collectors and that period offers some remarkably good specimens.
However, what also undoubtedly helps 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.
Undoubtedly, from my own perspective, if i was in it just for the investment opportunities, then there are almost certainly a couple of dozen watches in my possession at the moment that would provide me with a golden nest egg if i hung on to them. But i’m a dealer by nature and love the thrill of the next chase and purchase so the need to hang on and realise the full appreciation of a piece isn’t paramount to me.
However, in recognising that the possible increase in value is an important consideration for many of my clients I thought long and hard about what that might mean for prospective buyers. and, more importantly how i can answer that question.
The simple answer was to put my money where my mouth is and promise any prospective collectors that if they are looking to invest with a view to protecting that investment, As a result I’m prepared to offer a full buy back guarantee subject to certain terms and conditions. If you wish to put together a collection that offers the best investment opportunity and the chance to really treasure and enjoy that collection contact me today.
