WATCH SPECIALIST NICHOLAS BIEBUYCK’S FIVE RULES FOR PROTECTING YOUR INVESTMENT
Ensure the watch is not polished, which risks removing metal and its original finish.
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.
Keep a written record of the history of the watch to ensure provenance, preferably all the way back to the original owner.
Request an extract from the archives of brands that have them.
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.
