Finding the Gift That Will Last the Test of Time

                                      Finding the Gift That Will Last the Test of Time

It is hard to find the perfect gift during the holidays. Every person has different interests and you don’t know if they will keep using your gift after a year or even a couple months.  Whether you are searching for a gift for either a man or a woman you should consider looking at a vintage luxury watch.  Several of the watch brands that should specifically catch your eyes are Rolex. Patek Philippe, Cartier, Vacheron Constantin, and Audemars Piguet.

Pre-owned vintage watches have become the new normal for avid watch collectors as well as new buyers. “Vintage watches have soared in value over the past decade, as the wealthy put more money into collectibles. Auction houses now sell more than $100 million worth of watches a year, and the numbers are growing in the double digits.” Whether it be a vintage Patek Philippe or Rolex, these watches are not only a gift but an investment.  Best of all they are an investment that you can wear.

If you are looking for a watch for someone who enjoys diving and boating take a look at vintage Rolex Submariner’s, which James Bond made famous in the movie Goldfinger. If you are looking for a sporty watch that’s value is still growing then the vintage Rolex Daytona that Paul Newman made famous should be your choice.
Vintage Patek Philippe watches are always increasing in value and it is a watch that is fit for many occasions. The best thing that comes with a luxury watch as a gift, is not only is it an investment but also something that can become a heirloom passed down from generation to generation.
