Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 28, 2012
Owning a watch is no longer so much about keeping time as about projecting power, social status, or a fashion sensibility. There is a trend it utilizing luxury watches as a vehicle for investment.
As luxury-market observer Asal Mehtaban, president of Tusana Marketing near Los Angeles, noted, "We are seeing a younger more trendy client. Looking for an addition to their portfolio and their wardrobes”.
But a desire has emerged that makes watches attractive financial accessories, as demand for them among households with $100,000 incomes and above has tripled in the past four years, according to Asal’s research.
"It's status of one kind or another," she said in an interview.
Certainly, a Rolex or a Patek with diamonds and gold signals monetary status; it has for a long time.
"But there's a new status symbol in watches," Mehtaban said. Cartier watches - elaborately designed, high-end timepieces sold by manufacturers such as Rolex - are hot.
According to Mehtaban, these watches are gaining traction as more younger people expand their investment strategy and boast with a watch as a status symbol.
"I need this watch because of who I am inside," is the mind-set of these consumers, Mehtaban said. "I am successful."
