I never said anything about an "investment." The article just pointed out that Rolex as a brand tends to lose value much slower over time and could possibly increase in value as well.
I wore a Sub Date for 10 years and sold it for an $800 profit. Yes, I wore it almost daily and enjoyed it and it still incresed in value. Never did I think that would happen! There aren't too many items that you can do that with.

I enjoy most of my watches almost daily (right now I'm wearing a new GMT BLNR and actually wear my black face Daytona when I race).

Hey Guys,

After 10 years of hard work in the professional field (I'm an architect in Kuwait) I recently purchased my first M5 (2013 Alpine White, Full Black Leather Interior, and fully optioned) along with a Rolex Date just 116234.

ArchieLuxury would call it a "cool F#cka"
