Why buy a Bell & Ross
We’d give the same reply to anyone – buy a Bell & Ross if you like the style of the watch and want to wear something that stands out from the crowd. A unique design that doesn’t look like all the other Rolex Submariner, Omega Planet Ocean and Breitling Superoceans. That’s the bottom line – they’re a quirky design and need to be worn by a person happy with their own decisions and free from following the herd.
Some brands see the value of their watches fluctuate dramatically over a period of time. A good place to look at the value of a specific watch or an entire brand is WatchCharts.com (ext link). Bell & Ross are one of the “Steady Eddie” brands. No massive gains or rapid growth, but also no sharp off the cliff falls or huge losses.
ChronoDivers is AGAINST the purchase of watches as an investment – full stop. “BUY to WEAR” is our moto. However, it’s nice to know that your £4K / $5K purchase is going to be worth a similar price in 5 years. At the time of writing this – that was true for Bell & Ross watches. Please pop over to WatchCharts.com for a more detailed look
