It also happens to be a great first investment piece for any serious watch collector.
Here are 5 reasons a Submariner should be on your list for your next watch purchase.
1. Value has been increasing over the last 30 years
Prices generally rise almost every year, so the time is now to make that jump. The graph below shows the historical increase until 2008 to give you an idea. Today, you can find a Submariner retailing for around $7,514.
2. Safe investment
According to experts, Submariners hold their value spectacularly well, no surprise as it’s one of the most popular and sought-after watch examples. As the enduring symbol of James Bond before the switch to Omega, it’s easy to understand the appeal. The watch has been on the wrist of countless adventurers, statesmen, and other classic icons.
3. Easy to wear
It’s be the perfect companion for everyday wrist wear, heartily resisting damage and maintaining its sleek look for years to come. Its versatile style can take you from a weekend adventure at the bottom of the sea to a black tie event.
4. Special editions
A Rolex Submariner 16610V (released in 2003 to celebrate the Submariner line’s 50th anniversary) is a particular great investment as it was discontinued in 2010, and is expected to increase in value over time.
5. The ultimate investment
If you’re ready to make the ultimate investment, invest in a vintage Submariner 1680, 5513, 6200, or 6538. A watch of this caliber is worth its weight in gold and some collectors are willing to pay up to $25,000 for a true vintage Submariner.
