Imagine, while you’re searching on the internet you fall in love with a watch. You get in the car and go to the nearest official dealer. Unfortunately, you get to hear that the watch has been ‘discontinued’. But this doesn’t mean you’ll never get the chance to buy your beloved watch.
First of all, what does ‘discontinued’ mean? The word ‘discontinued’ can be placed between ‘Vintage’ (watches that are usually at least 30 years old) and ‘contemporary’ (current watch models). Discontinued doesn’t mean that the watch is 30 years old, it’s just that it isn’t offered by the brand anymore. If you still have that desire to buy your beloved watch, you can always search on the internet for trustful watch traders like Timepiece Bank. We have a wide selection of contemporary and discontinued watches. And what about the price? You may think that a discontinued watch in good condition has become unaffordable. Well, in some rare cases it has. But it would be wrong to think all discontinued watches rise in value. Most of them retain their value, depending on their condition, and for some you even pay a smaller price. The most important thing to know is that the price depends on how coveted the watch is.
