TwenyOnero says:

choice #1: Buy a car. choice #2: buy a mechanical sun dial.

DanielWhaaaa says:

They’re all trash

The Devil's Advocate says:

Are you saying there are some $ 50,000 – $ 100,000 watches that are junk and you couldn’t recommend ?

Venum Lord says:


Reehji says:

what kind of idiot thinks that a 300k+ watch is an investment of any kind. Something that has almost zero productivity improvement. It doesn’t return anything and most likely depreciate like crazy. This video is pretty ridiculous. One cannot justify any of these watches above 500$ as a form of investment (or worth).

Omar Muhnna says:



This guy chooses the same shit over and over.

Dl33ter says:

Between $50k and $100k, definitly the Patek Philippe Nautilus, or the Daytona 6263 big red are maybe the best investment.
Where are Audemars Piguet, Breitling (the Chronomat is very reliable and you can find it in good condition around 2 to 3K), Tag Heuer also, which is the small sister of Rolex, Piaget is also a great brand…
Above $100K, you can think about Richard Mille, the value is increasing like crazy!
Of course there’s more to say, and it would take more than a simple comment 🙂

DARLI says:

Bullit Cake says:

abhishek kuchibhotla says:

Makes iPhone X look cheap

Ayokz777 says:

50k+ from that price point, you can’t talk about seikos or IWC, they are known for their less expensive watches (sub10k). Patek Phillipe, Jaeger le Coutre, even Rolexes… Some APs but not some iced out monstrosity, something slick and subtle…
I just find it weird you mention rolex only twice and IWC / SEIKO more than 4-5 times…

Shredder McScumbag says:

The frustrating thing about watches (at least for me) is that the majority of the value lays within the brand name of the watch. Sure, craftsmanship and ascetics play a role in the price… but you really are just paying for the name.

You aren’t getting any better “performing” / “more comfortable” watches, unlike cars or other luxury goods. Even more than those Luxury goods, watches are serious rip-offs when bought new….

Matthew Demonroe says:

Every price point???? Wtf????

FKFATS says:

My brain stopped after the below $500 range.

iMoura UK /Minimal Vibes says:

Once you spend a certain amount of money on something like a watch, it goes from a purchase to an investment; unless you’re never going to sell it.
