‘The value of vintage watches is rising as more people seek an alternative to modern, high-tech gadgets.
The price of the most collectable second-hand wristwatches is rising by 5 per cent a year thanks to their old-fashioned appeal – telling the time without all the ‘extras’ that come with internet-enabled devices, such as electronic games, social media apps, news and fitness programmes.
Timepieces from top makers such as Rolex and Patek Philippe lead the market. Other makers whose watches are going up in value include Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Breitling, Cartier, TAG Heuer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, A. Lange & Söhne, Seiko, Tissot and Omega.’
