A UK Friend knows this because he has a banking background. So anyone who has the same experience will or can relate. On a few points. I don't have much gold but like to trade watches for gold coins nowadays rather than money (paper), cuts all the rubbish out.
London Rolex Authorized dealers have already increased it prices on Gold watches 5-8% so in theory we have had price increases throughout this year within 6-9 months. Following on, BOE is yet to raise its rates, the IMF will dry up, eventually. Prime Minister has no obligation to Europe accept its cousins (Royal descendants, aristocrats) typically as business men would say after doing you out of a deal! "Its business"
Now David Cameron has jumped ship! Correct Hilary battle axe will be president and its down hill from there onwards, for those who have stored up so much New pieces, good if you have the capital but only time will tell. "The water bed is drying" which is going to force a harsh decline. I'd rather any 60s-80s YG or WG full gold 14k, 18k watch over a steel any day. At least scrap value has some value to it and if you paid $7k and was to scrap as a worst case scenario you'd gain at least 50% against the weight maybe more to what you paid. But try and do this on today with any of the new watches it will be like trying to resale a diamond stone and we all know you always lose 75% of cost unless it’s flawless, same with exceptional time pieces! However for the average or majority who have thought to invest in newer and over produced pieces, many may be upset with my comment view and they are well within their rights to disagree.
Valuable metals is the global currency always has been has never failed, every countries foundation of economics still believes it to be viable.
Gold will soon increase to $2,000 very soon.
