Let’s be upfront: Generally speaking, watches don’t make good investments, with the value of most new wristwatches dropping once you leave a boutique with them. For the most, when it comes to timepiece purchases, we advocate being guided by passion, not the profit motive. However, for horology enthusiasts who want the best of both worlds, there are certain brands, and within them, certain models, that are more likely than others to retain, or rise in, value. If you’re prepared to get brutal with your watch stash, here are some of our recommendations.
