WATCH SPE­CIAL­IST NI­CHOLAS BIEBUYCK’S FIVE RULES FOR PRO­TECT­ING YOUR IN­VEST­MENT

Hong Kong Tatler - - Watch Advice -

1

En­sure the watch is not pol­ished, which risks re­mov­ing metal and its orig­i­nal fin­ish.

2

Wear the watch care­fully—keep your hand be­hind your back when walk­ing through door­ways and next to walls, and be­ware of ta­ble edges in restau­rants.

3

Keep a writ­ten record of the his­tory of the watch to en­sure prove­nance, prefer­ably all the way back to the orig­i­nal owner.

4

Re­quest an ex­tract from the ar­chives of brands that have them.

5

Keep all ad­di­tional boxes and pa­per­work.

If you fol­low this ex­pert ad­vice, you should find a way to both en­joy your watch and en­sure a profit down the road. You may also make a fu­ture buyer as happy as you were to own the watch years from now.
