STIMA VALUE INDEX – Patek Philippe Nautilus
Patek Philippe is, without a doubt, one of the finest brands in the watch industry. In fact, Patek Philipp is among the world’s most loved luxury watch brands, alongside Rolex and Audemars Piguet. Patek Philippe watches are incredibly popular among collectors thanks to their rich history, strong market performance, and technical brilliance. Watch enthusiasts greatly appreciate the incredible level of craftsmanship that goes into creating Patek Philippe’s timepieces.
This is particularly the case when looking at the financial performance of the Nautilus and the Aquanaut. These are by far the most popular lines of watches the brand creates. However, it’s also worth checking out the timepieces from the Calatrava line and some of Patek’s more spectacular annual calendar and perpetual calendar pieces. Market prices for watches, as always, are governed by supply and demand. With the current prices the Aquanaut and Nautilus are commanding, it’s clear to me that there are plenty of buyers for them.
I like to say that market prices should be left up to the buyers. And if you ask me, that’s what you see with Patek Philippe watches. They’re a special brand with a wonderful history and create some of the best and most exquisite timepieces known today. With their remarkable, sometimes astounding watches and company pedigree, it’s probably safe to say that they’re worth every penny if you can afford them. Only then will you be able to judge the real magic of the Patek Philippe brand and experience for yourself whether the money you paid is worth it.
