Re: Bi-metal = lower price
In Response To: Bi-metal = lower price ()

I agree with Darren. Two tone gold and stainless watches generally do not hold their value as well as stainless watches. The Rolex datejust is a good example. Older stainless datejusts are worth almost as much as 2 tone versions in today's least in the US. I have heard that it is because people do not want to show off their "bling" in a bad economy but I don't know. All I know is that stainless seems to be the popular look right now and the sport look sells better than the dress look.


: I wonder how it would of faired had it been the full stainless
: version.
: It may sound harsh but i beleive bi-metal versions of any watch
: greatly limit the number of potential buyers.
: Cheers - Darren
