For most of us, buying a luxury Swiss watch such as a Rolex is a big decision and can often involve a large expenditure. The decision making process can be fun, but it can also be a bit of a head ache. Especially when deciding how to pay for your new watch. Should you use savings, a credit card or apply for watch finance? The decision can be made a bit easier if you understand all your options, and the pros and cons for each of them.
WHY BUY A WATCH ON FINANCE?
No need to wait. Buying a watch on finance allows you to get the watch now and spread the payments over a long period of time. This allows you to keep the monthly payments down. Ideal if you haven't yet saved up enough money for your dream watch.
Watch inflation. Certain watches, especially sports models from Rolex including the Submariner, Daytona, GMT Master and Sea Dweller will increase in value over the years. This should be taken into account when deciding to buy a watch on finance. By the time you have paid for the watch it may actually be worth more than what you originally paid plus any finance fees.
Save your cash. Maybe you have saved enough money for your next watch but don't actually want to commit all your money to it. Buying a watch with a 0% APR options means you just put down a deposit and pay off the balance monthly with no additional fees.
You can upgrade. You have saved for your dream watch but maybe when you come to pull the trigger you find something a bit better. Why not use the original savings as a deposit and take out a little extra on finance to get you the perfect watch.
