5. Investment value
While it’s never advisable to buy a watch as an investment due to a fickle market, Patek Philippe watches are known to hold their value well. One of the reasons for this is that it remains an independent, family-owned company, who has a firm grip on its production, distribution, and value.
And while tastes change over time, Patek Philippe’s designs transcends trends. Combined with their use of precious metals, their inherent quality, and imperial provenance, you get a watch that’s fit to pass on to the next generations.
