Yes, but not only do they hold their value, they increase over time. You have to remember though that if you buy one at retail, the value will go down at first, but then go up again fairly quickly. Also, always remember, a patek is one of the most storied brands in history so they will ALWAYS be valuable.

Rolex watches hold their value. In fact, many watches classical Rolex are worth more after 40 years than when they were brand new. One example: A 1960s Rolex GMT Master could …have been purchased new for around $200-$250. As of mid-2008, that same watch is worth nearly $5,000.00. for normal people,they can not afford it,in my opinion,replica ones,but quality well, is also a choice for the people which love watches.

You can call the manufacturer or check with the police. The issue is the police aren't all connected with each other.
