the watch market has taken a heavy, heavy lift and prices have gone a little bit out
of control. I did an earlier video, maybe about a month
ago on how the prices have declined, so some people have been asking me and emailing, which
watches are safe to buy. So I wanna go over a couple of genres or models,
will say, that relatively have been unaffected in this whole craze and are overall safe buys. So the first one is Rolex in two-tone has
pretty much stayed stable throughout this whole bubble in the market. The Datejust in 41 millimeter has been pretty
much unaffected. Prices rose very little earlier in the year,
but overall has stayed stable. The Yacht-Master two-tone, Yacht-Master II,
same thing, been unaffected, the price has nearly has not changed in the last three years. So both of these, for example, are safe buys
in today’s market. You could buy it and not worry about it. If you’re looking to buy a watch right now
that’s gonna rise and increase in price, highly doubt it. Buy it because you like it. Buy it because is a safe buy. Another safe buy in today’s market market
is the AP 42mm Offshore. It’s been virtually untouched as well. These watches have been selling anywhere from
$15,000 to $16,000 for the last four years. Prices have not even been affected with the
whole change in this last twelve months in the watch market. So if you’re looking again to buy something
that holds value that you’re getting a great price and a discount from retail, the 42 millimeter
Offshore, whether it’s a Navy, a Safari, a Volcano, a Black Theme, so on and so forth,
are also great buys. So last but not least for me would be the
Rolex Presidential. I mean, I just can’t think of any other watch
that’s more stable, period, overall than the Presidential. It doesn’t matter whether you’re buying a
40 mm or a discontinued Day-Date II 41 also, or even the 36 millimeter, they are stable. They don’t really move and they are not affected. You see, the Day-Date II has been rising the
last four years, but it has not had a kick and it won’t have a kick in the market. These are all safe buys in today’s market. The only time when I would say it, any of
these watches that I mentioned, are not safe buys is if you’re paying full retail. I mean, if you wanna go ahead and pay full
retail, technically you are OK, but if you wanna have minimal loss in your purchase,
you’re gonna go pre-owned and you’re gonna have a stable purchase throughout the life
of owning these watches. So keep this in mind, the watch market in
general is pretty stable when you compare it to other hobbies or other assets, which
are just as expensive and devalue just as much or even way more. But if you’re looking to buy some watches
right now that you’re gonna have for a little while and you know…people are calling me
all the time and saying, “Hey Eric, should I buy one of these Hulks right now at $15,000?” I mean, honestly I don’t know what to tell
them, you know? The market price right now for a Hulk is $15,000. Will it stay there? I don’t know. I mean, I wish I had a crystal ball. I would have bought all of them five years
ago when they were going for six to seven thousand dollars. But overall just safe buys, as I mentioned
before, Rolex two-tones and the Yacht-Master II for example and the Datejust, pretty strong,
no affect in the market. AP 42mm, historically those watches haven’t
even changed as opposed to their little brother, the Royal Oaks, where those took a skyrocket. They went from $12,000 all the way from $22,000. You see, I don’t know if I feel comfortable
paying $22,000 for a Royal Oak 41 self-winding, but the Presidential overall is that one watch
that for me, it doesn’t matter if you’re buying a 1992 or a 2020, stable in the market, if
you buy it at a discount, pre-owned, so on and so forth, So keep in mind that this video could be an
hour and a half long and we could go over hundreds of watches that can technically be
safe buys. I’m really just trying to point out which
are the most popular watches that sell the most often. I do sell watches for a living, so I do know
what people ask for, that are the safe buys. Yes, there are some pre-owned Panerais and
some preowned watches out there that you could buy, some pre-owned Tag Heuers, stuff like
that when you can get good deals and they’re relatively safe, but I’m talking more about
the higher end, more popular demand watches are safe. So feel free to comment below if there’s any
watches that you feel might be safe in today’s market. And don’t forget to hit the notifications

  1. This is surprising , I didn’t think the yacht 2 especially the 2 tone was that popular. The Day Date makes sense. When was the AP 12 grand? I missed the boat on that one

  2. Just surprised you didn’t mention Rolex Sports watches. As long as you buy right, you’ll be fine, not the double retail crappiness!

  3. Can you walk into a rolex AD and buy a day date 40 with white dial? Or is it one of those watches u need to be on a waiting list for?

  4. Man I love your videos but I don't think anything will be safe if the stock market dips hard. Just because two tone didn't go up it still didn't drop, which is what used to happen to everything. I think a better question is which pieces will rebound and move on to new heights the fastest after a dip. Do you think the long long term is higher for Hulks and GMTs?

  5. I have bought about 4 years ago a Girard Perrgaux Minute Repeater Tourbillon Men's – ref.99820-21-001-BA6A with 374.000 $ retail price…in these days you will never found it under 550.000 $….
    By the way…what's your opinion regarding Jaeger LeCoultre wtaches?

  6. Eric…a suggestion please. If you were me would you go for a 26331st blu at 25k € (retail) or 26331or chocolate crocodile at 31.5k € (20% off from retail) ? Both new.
    I can’t make up my mind…

  7. Hi Eric! Good video man! I was wondering what's your thoughts about the sky steel and the new deepsea. Is it a safe buy? Talking about buying in retail. Hard to find second hand in a decent price. Thanks!

  8. Man…makes me proud you held up the Navy AP into the cam and said its safe. As for me I think to gain some value on watches is to costumize them with diamonds. Thats what I did with mine😊 Great vid Eric and hope I inspired you for taking out the Navy💥

  9. Got datejust 41 so I guess I'm safe. I pick it over submainer because I wanted to be different plus I like it. Even though you can buy it from a AD. Every time I bump to person who wearing a Rolex it always a black submainer.

  10. Ok, so what’s going to happen with prices on steel sports Rolex, come the holidays 🌲 ? Are we going to see prices skyrocketing ?

  11. Next year NO FOOD you will swap your Rolex what ever for a loaf of bread when your kids are screaming starving to death, you and your spouse big fat belly`s you dirty rats you BUT Rolex only sports.

  12. I'd say any sports Rolex that you can buy at retail would be safe bets. Naturally for some models the wait is years long, but still, if you can manage to grab one for full retail, you are 100.0% safe.

  13. Exotic cars and Luxury watches can profit serious $$$ without being a dealer – You would have an difficult time convincing me you can do the same with ladies jewellery , bags and shoes – Lol

    Always love your stuff Eric

  14. Hey Erick really like ur videos , I’m sure you are well off financially also , bro buy a new wardrobe…u need more than those black t’s u always wear

  15. Hello, yeah I was checking your guys site, I'm really looking for a Day date2 41mm but I didn't see any, do you guys have any?

  16. I bought myself a Rolex Daytona 16523. I bought it because like it and will keep it for a long while regards of the market

  17. everybody were shitting on 2 tones for past couple of years, many of them lost a lot of money on the hyped models lately ))

  18. Rolex it’s the best resale n pawn value in the world. U can just cash out anytime less than 10 min during emergency unlike other watches will take Long time to consider to take in. 🙈🙈👍🏼👍🏼🇺🇸

  19. A safe buy is a steel sports Rolex at retail, but we all know that. 😉 Even a stainless steel DJ41 right now (either Wimbledon, blue dial Roman, blue dial sticks, or even silver dial) at retail is a good buy as well. There are even a couple of two tones that are a good buy at retail, like the two-tone bluesy or two tone Root Beer GMT.

  20. Congratulations Eric for your channel! I would like to buy a new Datejust 41 smooth bezel with black dial and oyster bracelete. It’s a safe buy with AD prices? Thanks!

  21. CRM team/Eric

    Difficult question. Would the WG white gold black dial skydweller be a good buy today or do you see prices declining once demand for SS slows down? I value YOUR opinion.

  22. Recently purchased a 41 datejust two-tone everrose. Since it was pre-owned I only had to pay 9.5k with box and papers. New in the store it was 12.5k

  23. Great video. A few others to consider that I have been tracking online with very stable prices are the two-tone SkyDweller Reference 326933, the Bluesy Reference 116613BL, and a lower price option the Omega Seamaster 300 3-6-9-12 no date Reference

  24. Well the offshore 42mm are great buys if you don’t have to pay 2/3k for service!Because the movement always had a lot of issues!

  25. Eric, I have a Rolex sub two tone with the diamond dial year 2010, I wanted to sell it, how much does it worth now in the market? Thank you Eric .

  26. I love my Tag heuer Grand Carrera 17RS in steel . I also bought APROO but as a brand ya AP is a big but Tag Grand Car 17 RS is perfect in terms of price and size .

  27. Rolex Explorer 214270 latest version with the lumed numerals, safe buy. Won't go up much but you will get your money back in years to come.

  28. The watch market cannot be stable with the slowdown in China, they were pushing demand for west coast real estate and Florida lobster, China was the reason you cannot buy Florida lobster in Miami

  29. An honorable mention would be a non ceramic steel submariner. You can get em for $5-6k and they’re really only gonna go up from there but slowly. Right?

  30. Everyone knows super common mass produced Rolexes, for which the dealers perpetuate the myth of their rarity and exclusivity, are the BEST place to store your money as an investment! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Man, I wonder how many "investment" SS Rolexes are gonna be listed on Chrono24 during the next recession!? Remember, at one point in history tulip bulbs were a "guaranteed" place to store your wealth.

  31. Why do people always seem to buy watches as an investment??? I got myself an Explorer 2. Just because its big, precise and basically indestroyable because I wanted a watch to wear the rest of my life.

  32. You haven't mentioned the vacheron constantin overseas. It's a pretty good pre-owned buy. $16k for a holy trinity steel sport model. Compare that to a 5711/1A or a 15400st royal oak, and you'll get what i mean.

  33. The watch has got to be getting even worse with the collapse of retail spending in Hong Kong, and with violence escalating there…car sales are getting smashed right now
