Is The New Watch Really ‘worth It’ To Buy

Panerai LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950 3 professional diving bronze watch
古老 This ancient bronze material is an alloy of copper and tin, which has extremely high structural strength and excellent resistance to seawater and air corrosion. With the passage of time, the green rust color formed on the surface can create a more quaint feeling, limited to 3,000. Do not try on people with sensitive skin
Although it is said that high-end mechanical watches are mainly based on performance rather than materials, but from any angle, materials are the key factors that determine the price, grade and wearing effect of a watch. And fabrics make sense to high fashion. As the watch market becomes more competitive, in order to create new market demand, major well-known brands have invariably begun to rely on strong R & D and manufacturing capabilities, and constantly challenge the limits of metallurgical and processing technology-facing a variety of high-tech materials. Watch models, we can’t help but ask, these watches are really so good, is it worth our money for them?
We consulted Dr. Fengqing Qing, a well-known spiritual and psychologist, and also a senior watch collector.
People who buy new material tables are divided into four categories, they are:
1. Seeking novelty, there are some more avant-garde in the society, especially young people, who like to seek novelty and change;
2. For lightness, the mindset of normal people still prefer to wear a watch that is not so heavy, unless it is based on reality and considers the issue of value preservation;
3. Attention, because the new material tables are more special in appearance and different from the traditional ones. The new material tables rarely have 30 or 35 mm, they are all large tables, which are more eye-catching;
4. Seeking scarcity, such as steel watches, gold watches, or ‘gold and silver watches (inter-gold watch)’ has spread, titanium alloy ceramic watches are still few, people’s mentality is hope that others do not have.
I’m not very interested in the new material table. There are two reasons. First, the newly developed products must be allocated to the cost in the initial stage. It is very expensive to do this research, so in 5 The price of the watch within 10 years will be higher than the normal value, which also means that its second-hand price will definitely drop a lot, if it is obviously not cost-effective from the perspective of value preservation. The second is that watches and other products have always valued tradition. Only after the test of time and the continuation of history, can its quality be guaranteed and can it prove that it has a certain status, otherwise there will be quality risks when buying.
Speaking of the Panerai PAM382 bronze watch that has been hot recently, Dr. Chung believes that this watch is of little significance to the ‘Pei party’ because Panerai has three main selling points: the power of the warrior inherited from the Italian Navy, The movement’s stable performance and unique shape, these three points do not match this PAM382 watch. And as far as bronze is concerned, it is not as strong as steel, its value is not as good as gold, its lightness is not as good as titanium, and it has no practical value.
