When it comes to some watch brands, they can be a brilliant investment or heirloom piece that can be cherish for generation. Knowing whether this is something you want to have with your choice of timepiece is one of the things that should be taken into consideration when deciding which brand and style of ladies watches you should purchase.

  1. Brand

The brand, make and model of the watch have a huge contribution to the value of your watch after purchase. Obviously if you are purchasing a watch that is in the high end market, they tend to maintain their value regardless of their age. Watches that have better specifications and more luxurious features also tend to hold their value, more than watches with basic features.

  • Condition

The condition of the watch will obviously also be important to the overall value of the watch, you won’t be able to have a decent resale value on something that has been damaged or is in a terrible condition. Most watches being sold as second hand will be in a near mint condition, allowing the person who purchases it to experience an almost new item.

  • Papers and original box

If you are buying a watch that has been pre owned the likelihood is you would want the original box and papers. If a watch still has its original box in a good condition and all the original papers, it will instantly add more value as they are all important parts when considering the resale of a watch you’ve previously purchased.

  • Authenticity

Being able to provide authenticity of the make and model from the original manufacturer will always be more valuable than replica’s, counterfeits and watches without any authenticity. As long as the demand in the market is strong for that brand or model of watch will always hold value, however if the demand drops then so will the value of that watch.
