  1. Hi,

    The previous thread on "What Watch" has steered my interest in things that go tick. Now, theoreticaly not only would collecting watches give me a few interesting things to wear but would also be an investment for the future.
    I think I'll go for 70's - 80's watches manly with a light dusting of other era's :eek:)

    Can any one suggest any good books on the subject?

    Can investing in watches be a good investment?

    Cheers in advance?
  2. not entirely true...Rolex are a rock solid investment. eg, a s/s sub would have cost around £2500 in 1998; you could sell today for around £3500

    In El Adam NAAFI April 1970 a Submariner was £ 29 best deal I ever got
  4. Thanks for the advice.
    I'll order the books off Amazon once the Crimbo rush has gone.

    I suppose that watches fall under the same as art and antiques, highs and lows, influenced by ever changing fashions and culture.
