Contrary to popular belief, Rolex watches are not necessary safe investment choices. Certain types of Rolex’s are show pieces, and lack that investment bite that requires them to actually gain value over time instead of stay stagnant. A Rolex will always give a proper return, but not a continuously growing return.

The other strategy for investing is to go rare or go home. Some watches were made in such exclusive small production runs that they are incredibly rare. Others have some historical context, such as one worn by an inventor or person of historical importance. These watches are not rare or vintage alone- they are special. World War II watches have become a huge collector’s item, and garner a good rate.
