SHOULD I GO DIV­ING IN A DIVE WATCH, OR WILL THAT DRIVE DOWN ITS VALUE EX­PO­NEN­TIALLY?

Sharp - - SHARP WATCH -

First things first: if you’re buy­ing a watch solely for in­vest­ment pur­poses, you fol­low the Comic Book Rule — keep it in a bag (or in this case, a watch-wind­ing safe) and don’t touch it. While watches do hold their value bet­ter than, say, cars, they shouldn’t be re­lied upon to di­ver­sify your port­fo­lio. Any dam­age to your time­piece, un­der­wa­ter or above, will af­fect the watch’s value, but take note: some watches that have been found in poor con­di­tion on beaches decades af­ter they were lost by a sol­dier — or who­ever — have sold at auc­tion for unimag­in­ably high sums. If you are go­ing to dive, though, make sure you check your watch's depth ca­pa­bil­i­ties first.
