Going to the hour glass today
This is what they say about the Subraminer, not sure about the appreciating value bit but surely looks like a good hand much does a normal 20+ year old Submariner cost anyways, much appreciation?

No.6 The Rolex Submariner
The Rolex Submariner is considered by many to be the ultimate wristwatch, despite its genuinely sporty roots as a true tool watch. The Submariner also holds tremendous collectors value and is one that will likely retain its value even when your son is ready to pass it on to the next generation.
Was in this article on the "Top 10 Legacy watches" that was looking for and was in the link you had sent

EDIT: Was looking at how used Rolexes keep their value on this pre owned Rolex website page in the US (this dealer's a seller on Amazon), looks like they loose value quite a bit v/s what the advertising makes us believe (Do a mouseover on each watch's picture, the popup lists their original retail price)
