Ernest Hemingway once said, "There is no friend as loyal as a book."
'There is nothing in modern life that is unaffected by computers, but only recently has their groundbreaking role in our culture and history been appreciated,'
‘Classic hi-fi offers better value than new equipment that is not always built to last as it once was. You are unlikely to lose money by investing in a quality turntable – and have the added return of enjoying great sounding music.’
Unlike other investments, watches are indeed subject to trends and changing market sentiments. While premier timepieces are wondrous works of art with countless hours of labour put in, they are still an accessory at the end of the day. Unlike classic cars and property, their tangible value is significantly less than that of other investments.
However, watches rarely depreciate in value and do not require any significant maintenance unlike a New York penthouse or a Lamborghini Miura
Furniture may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think “investment” but, if you buy wisely (and do your research!) then you could just pick yourself up something which will, in the long run, bring you a healthy return. Mid-Century furniture was always well made with simple, hard-wearing materials — teak, rosewood, plastics & fibreglass being just a few of these — and as as result, is (if looked after!) still just as functional today as it was when it was made.
