Considering Future Value

Historically, luxury watch brands tend to appreciate in value. These watches are typically mechanical styles instead of digital designs. The value stems from the workmanship, detail, and design of the piece.

Over a 15-year period, certain brands, including Panerai watches, might appreciate by several hundred dollars. Keep in mind that this value depends largely on demand and current trends.
