The Art of Appreciating Luxury Watches
To the everyman, watches are an odd thing to place so much value over. To those avid collectors, however, it’s a no-brainer. At the very heart, it’s all about the craftsmanship, appreciation of the movement, as well as the intricacy of the design. Many brands have gained prominence over the years and that remains one of the biggest factors in determining value. PawnHero looks at three things that make luxury watches such valuable, pawnable pieces.
1. Brands have built perception over the years.
Patek Philippe, Tag Heuer, Rolex, Cartier, Tissot, Omega, Philip Stein, Bulgari, and more—these are names that are associated with class and luxury watches. Mention these names to anyone and they’ll likely regard you with a sense of awe and wonder. These brands evoke a sense of the elite, the unique in their watches and time pieces. For many of them, it’s a matter of long histories and equally long reputations for excellence. For others, it’s a mix of that and the images they create. Either way, if your watch has these factors backing it, expect a good price.
2. Scarcity creates greater value.
Casio watches aren’t perceived as “luxury” watches—and they never try to be. All their popular models are sold en masse and in-bulk. The number of units sold works to the advantage of these brands because the larger sales volume mitigates the expenses of production. Luxury brands tend to release several models in far more limited quantities. Not only does this create a perception of value-through-rarity, but—in a practical sense—does require a higher price to cover expenses properly.
3. Quality costs money.
In spite of its small size, luxury watches contain very complex interior machinery called “movements”. These are finely engineered components that have undergone rigorous testing and development. Depending on the pedigree of the manufacturer, this can cost much in terms of time and investment. What you end up with is simply marvelous however and guaranteed to be durable through the years. That’s not even mentioning the care and attention given to make these pieces look beautiful.
