One phrase comes to mind – Our loss is your gain. As watch dealers from around the globe feel the effects of the worsening economy, the deals for the savvy buyer have become better and better. Unique pieces from such coveted brands as Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet are becoming easier to purchase as market values have fallen over the last 6 months considerably, and dealers rush to unload their inventory. Watch dealers that relied on the fat of the market are failing and all around people are glum. But not you! You know that this is the time to invest!

A lot of us have taken big hits with the current state of the economy, but all is not lost. The market will inevitably turn around, and smart investments now will make all the difference in how quickly you bounce back. That being said – not only is timepiece collecting a fun and fulfilling pastime, if done correctly, it can be quite the profitable past-time as well. One of the greatest investments I’ve found in the world of collectible timepieces is the brand Patek Philippe.

Patek Philippe celebrates its 170th anniversary this year, a lifetime that has seen several cycles of booming and waning economies. This is a brand that has held the interest of elite collectors with their limited production masterpieces such as the 5970 and the 5070. Likely, there is no better time to purchase Patek Philippe watches or other successful brands such as these. Dealers are ready to make a deal - and the values ready to rebound. While it might not be a get rich quick investment, it is undoubtedly a smart long term investment.
