Watches are worthwhile investments. Of course not all watches, but only certain ones, special ones, selected ones. But not so special that you could not just buy them. At least some of them. How to recognize what in this form of investment pays off, this book is all about. Like all luxury goods, a watch must be rare and in demand to rise in value. Therefore, all consumer goods decrease in value – but not luxury goods: Luxury goods are rare, not available, scarce, durable and timeless, thus stable in value and therefore in demand. This book will give you all the details of investing in luxury watches in a nutshell and focused on the crucial information, so once you've read it, you immediately can go and buy your first watch as an investment.
Forget functionality, a luxury watch attached to a wrist just always seems to be a major enhancement to any wardrobe. Brands like Rolex and Cartier carry an air of prestige that truly exhibit the extent of a person’s success, as well as command respect and admiration for the perfected craftsmanship in which these items are created.

Looking for cheap watches on the internet? Better think twice before making that purchase. In this e-book, we explore how sales of these counterfeit watches are hurting both collectors and the watch industry. For some watch collectors, the temptation is just too much. "I have seen quite respectable watch collectors with nice collections who couldn't get their hands on that one limited-edition piece that they wanted," says Beatrice de Quervain, a veteran U.S. watch executive and most recently head of Hublot North America. "They always buy from their authorized dealer, but then, just for that one piece, they broke down and went to an unauthorized source on the Internet. And sure enough, they got burned. They paid $20,000, $25,000." What they got, de Quervain says, was a counterfeit.

He doesn't just have a license to kill; he also has a license to tell time. Bond's creator Ian Fleming made sure to give the world's most famous secret agent a wristwatch in his novels. In the eleventh volume (there are a total of 14 original editions), On Her Majesty's Secret Service, which was published in 1963, Fleming offers the reader a very precise description of this watch. James sees a "heavy Rolex Oyster Perpetual on a metal watch bracelet as he awakes in the middle of the night." And Fleming remained with this watch brand in all future Bond adventures.

"Rolex was established in 1908, a century ago, so one hundred years have passed from that day to the publication of this volume in which the author, John Goldberger, illustrates what he considers to be the 100 most beautiful examples ever produced. One hundred years of life, and one hundred examples, traced back through time thanks to painstaking research, with the collaboration of some of the most renowed collectors in the world, and photographed to show the characteristics of the movement, case and dial of each example in the best possible way. The top one hundred, we could say, also to narrow down the field of research, which would otherwise have been incredibly vast, to grasp the essence of a brand that has probably contributed more than any other to the development of the wristwatch. Giampiero Negretti Over 700 colour illustrations and 400 descriptions provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable information on reference numbers, watchcases, faces, movements, related calibres and the year of production of each watch. The book is divided into seven chapters: Watches with a destiny; Oyster; Chronograph and moon phases; Oyster chronograph and moon phases; Datejust, Day-Date; Sport Models; Cosmograph."--BOOK JACKET.
The second edition follows the highly successful first edition in filling an important under-served niche in the strategy arena: a casebook on business strategy in Asia. As a teaching tool, the usage of case studies is widespread in business strategy courses. Many case studies are focused on companies from developed economies, especially from the U.S. and Western Europe, leaving a large void in terms of understanding the strategies of Asian companies. This book aims to fill this void in the current offerings of textbooks. Written by experts on Asian business, it is a unique and comprehensive collection of cases about the strategies of Asian firms. The cases are wide-ranging, covering a diverse range of issues, geographic contexts, industries and decision situations. The rigor and depth of information included in each of the cases provides considerable versatility to educators in terms of usage at various levels. The cases have been carefully chosen to represent the geographic and economic diversity of the different countries, industries, and firms within Asia.
