Every watch they produce appreciates by 10% each year (assuming of course that you take care of it.) I wear several different watches. Most of them are vintage Hamilton electrics (about 8 of them), but I also wear a vintage Omega, a vintage Bulova, a vintage Ernst Borel Cocktail, & a vintage Vacheron Constantine. The thing about vintage watches is that just like classic cars, they are unique. Most of them aren't really that expensive. You can pick up a great old mechanical watch for $200 dollars or so. You will have to wind it every day, but it will last forever and keep great time. It will also be noticed. I was wearing my Hamilton Ventura one night at a party and happened to steal a Patek Phillipe from an older gentleman. He kept going on and on about my Hamilton. I didn't say a word about his watch. At the end of my set, he again mentioned my watch and how much he liked it. At that point I took it off and offered to to give it to him as a gift or he could trade it for something else. He wanted to keep the Hamilton until I pulled his Patek Phillipe from my pocket. Bottom line is get something that is unique and you will be noticed. Or just keep wearing your current watch and not worry about the status symbol. I wear old watches because I like them, not because I do magic. Paul [/quote]
