Do you think that if a person buys an expensive watch, he wastes money or makes a good investment?
By purchasing a watch for $3000-4000, you get a clockwork and a wristlet. But the same amount of money can be spent on, for example, 6 mobile phones with a voice recorder, camera, other technical innovations that you will not find even in the most expensive Swiss watches. Of course, you can save some and buy a cheaper model, but do not expect that you buy high-quality Swiss watches for the price of Chinese. Quality and technology are not cheap. People appreciate not only the appearance of this accessory, but also the countless features and unique design. So watch companies constantly improve the produced models. Main brands present new developments at least once a year, so there are a lot of high-end models to choose from.
Once someone purchases a car, no one doubts that he is making an investment in himself, in his status, since his friends, neighbors, business partners and employees attitude changes. In addition, it is also an investment in the family. After all, he is taking care of the family, creating comfort and safety while transportation.
Imagine a situation when your business partner invites you to a business meeting and you are arriving on some old pickup instead of expensive sedan. Just imagine his feelings. You tell the story which explains the situation, but the prejudice and the distrust will remain in the future.
Watches work in exactly the same way. Many wealthy people are well versed in high-end models, and if the low-cost old car can be hidden somewhere around the corner, a cheap watch will be seen right on your hand. Then the partners will think twice whether to work with you. Someone's prestige has been estimated by the watch he wears for a long time. Yes, it's a stereotype, but it is strong enough to ruin any impression about you. An expensive watch, as well as an expensive car emphasizes status, it makes your interlocutor be sure about your abilities. In big cities expensive watches open all the doors, because here people often judge by appearances. When you are going to eat at an expensive restaurant, you cannot take your expensive car with you, but your watch will let everyone know who you are.
Swiss watches are no less difficult to manufacture than a sports car engine. The mechanism works for 24 hours every day, while the engine works only when the car is moving and needs major repairs every 100000 miles, while vintage Rolex watches can work forever, making rotations equal to 8000km every single hour.
In addition, you can leave the watch to your heirs, who will surely be happy to get it since in 30-50 years, the rarity will increase in price by hundreds of times. So do not hesitate to invest in famous and expensive brands. Nobody will say that you are a spender, on the contrary, everyone will believe that you are a wise man who knows what he wants to achieve in life.
