Not worth a quarter of the price. These are crappy Chinese watched pretending to have a history, the kind of rubbish found on aliexpress.com for £15.

True but then i have a friend who purchased a Rolex for £14,000 which is the greater mistake.

The Rolex will retain its value. Buy the right one and it's better than money in the bank. That and the satisfaction of owning & wearing while it appreciates in value.

The value of rolex is determined by scarcity nowadays these luxury goods companies are flooding the market, i would guess 5 years from now people will look at rolex and think of tulipmania

Which is why I said buy the right one. A green faced Submariner for example.

Awful looking watch, made up brand name, £7 worth of automatic movement...

...Oh and I hope the strap never needs to be replaced due to wear and tear (it will, after a few months, as it's not genuine leather)
#9
AND £150 gets you a nice Seiko or something like that...

You do know that rolex are for people don't know the first thing about horology. The rolex movements are inferior in every way to standard swatch eta movements.

Even assuming what you are saying is correct it's irrelevant to my point. You could go on to say that a Seiko Automatic movement or a £10 Casio digital are more accurate/precise/reliable the fact is buying a "insert mainstream brand" watch you will likely as not lose money on it. Buy a Rolex "Insert chosen model" and it might appreciate in value or you might just be someone who gets a warm fuzzy feeling from Rolex ownership that you can't place a value on. Some people like the fact that Rolex make the "whole" watch and don't just make a pretty case and drop a generic movement in. Same reason some people love classic cars more than a "better" modern car,. better means different things to different people.

As you are the horological expert what makes a Swatch movement superior in every way to a Rolex one?

The Rolex movement is one of the most basic and unchanged movements in the industry. Typically watchmakers pride themselves on the number of complications and escapement designs and variations. in effect when buying an expensive watch you are paying for this exclusive expertise heritage and skill. The real watch houses compete with one another on such matters and the industry experts /collectors appreciate this art and attach a value to this craftsmanship whereas with a Rolex you are buying a modern car with a 70's engine under the hood. Only Arthur Daley types think a Rolex is quality.

Rolex, as a manufacture, produce the entire watch in house. Yet this is supposedly looked down upon by real watch houses and you reference Swatch ETA which are found in all manner of cases. The 70s car reference is frankly ridiculous along with the "unchanged" comment. Would a Rembrandt benefit from a bit of modernisation?
#14
I take it you own a Rolex comparing it to Rembrandt is laughable only car salesman /estate agents and upcoming rappers aspire to a Rolex. Fund managers and city traders wouldn't be seen dead with a Rolex.

Now throw your Rollie's in the sky and wave them side to side.
#15
I've got a '73 Omega Seamaster as it happens but it rarely sees the light of day.

I think I will have to stretch to a Rolex if it means I won't get mistaken for a City Trader. What was it you said earlier about Arthur Daley types?
