A ladies Rolex Oyster perpetual datejust chronometer wristwatch
Time waits for no man! - or lady.
Never has a more true word been said, especially talking about the astronomical rise in prices of classic and vintage wristwatches in the last decade, and even more so in the last few years.
The recent boom has been fuelled by a more refined customer looking for a watch as a statement piece, but wanting something that shouts individuality, as well as prestige. This is where the classic wristwatch excels.
At Golding Young our horological experts have identified and sold models of the worlds most desirable watches in the past few years, including 1960's Omega Speedmasters, and 1970's Rolex Submariners - both known as ‘tool watches’ in their day and designed for a hard rugged life, now coveted as a marvel of engineering and design.
The last few years has seen the whole market moving to the ever higher echelons of the collectables price bracket and so lesser known brands (but of equal, if not better quality) such as Patek Philippe, Jaeger Le-Coultre, IWC, Longines and others starting to demand prices that would have been unthinkable, even 10 years ago.
