Please note that classic and antique watches cannot be considered water-resistant or water-proof by modern standards, even if stated on the piece itself. We do strive to renew seals and ensure the best protection from moisture that each watch will allow but we cannot guarrantee this work will survive prolonged exposure to liquids.
Why Are Gold Watches So Special?
The solid gold watch has seen a decline in numbers over the past few decades as the demand for gold plated electronic components exponentially increased. The movements are binned and the cases melted down. Sad, yes, inevitable no.
The purchase of a gold watch like this is an act of preservation and investment: Fully serviced, warranted for 5 years and within the warrantee period the new owner will see the value of their investment grow far quicker than gold rate itself. With the number of gold watches shrinking every day, their value as antique timepieces starts to increase. We’ve already seen 18ct watches with complications valued at £15,000 on the BBC’s ‘Antiques Roadshow’ where previously they were valued at under a few thousand.
It won’t be long before watches like this become inaccessible to the lay person, so even if you don’t see this as an investment, surely this watch represents value for money?
