Higher Supply After Crypto Crash Hurts Resale Prices of Top Watches From Swiss Brands Like Rolex

The recent decline in the valuations of crypto assets has directly impacted pricing of luxury watches from Rolex, Patek Philippe and the like, a German online platform that lists hundreds of thousands of watches has noticed.

The supply of trophy watches, such as the Rolex Daytona or Patek Nautilus 5711A, “is now much larger,” the Karlsruhe-based Chrono24 said in a statement, quoted by Bloomberg. The crypto collapse is easing supply of the most desired models on the second-hand market, it elaborated.

The report notes that the decreasing prices of the most wanted timepieces is an indication that the second-hand luxury watch market is starting to lose pace. That’s after surging crypto rates before that had led to the birth of a new class of luxury buyers and unprecedented increase in the prices of models from the top brands.

These consumers are now retreating and the prices for the most sought after watches fall closer in line with other, similar products. The trend represents a consolidation of the market, remarked Chrono24 Co-CEO Tim Stracke.
