Resale Value

 

By clicking on a column you are able to display its value.

A second-hand IWC Doppelchronograph today is worth more than the official sales price from back in 1996. The value of a new watch falls down to its market value after purchase. The retail sales price usually includes a relatively high retailer margin, which represents a markup to the market value of a watch. By purchasing a used IWC Doppelchronograph at a price near its market value, you are able to achieve a higher rate of return. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in a second hand and well-maintained watch, ideally with original papers and box.
