Luxury Watch Trends for 2021 – What’s Coming
With 2020 now officially behind us, it is time to turn our attention to the new year and what luxury watch trends might be on the horizon. The watch industry is notoriously slow-moving – most modern mechanical movements are still based on a technology that is more than a couple hundred years old – however that doesn’t mean that things are not always changing and advancing within it.
Seldom is a trend confined to a single year within the cheap watch industry, and many carry over from one year to the next. In truth, these “trends” actually reflect the real-time changes in both consumer and manufacturer preferences, and sometimes these can remain remarkably constant over time – just like how cheese pizza will likely always be popular. So, what are the luxury watch trends for 2021?
Stainless steel Rolex sports models are a staple of the luxury watch world and this is not something that is likely to change very soon. Iconic, durable, and more than capable of lasting multiple lifetimes, they are often considered the ‘blue-chip’ investments of the replica watch industry, and the overwhelming global demand for them virtually guarantees their continued popularity well into 2021 and the years beyond.
Given that most models have lengthy waiting lists at retailers around the world, virtually all stainless steel Rolex sports watches are incredibly popular and will likely remain popular into 2021. The Daytona and GMT-Master II are two of the most popular Rolex models currently available, but our top pick for 2021 is the Rolex Submariner collection. Given that the Submariner just got a complete update in 2020, many individuals are looking to add one to their collections, and both current-production models and discontinued references are likely to be really so popular in 2021.
Gold watches have never been flat-out undesirable (after all, they are made out of solid gold); however, their popularity has fluctuated over the years depending on both the price of gold and general fashion preferences. With that in mind, much of the watch collecting world’s attention has been fixed firmly upon stainless steel watches over the last decade or so, and it has only been within the last few years that gold watches have really started to experience more resurgences in popularity.
As we enter 2021, the price of gold remains extremely high, and with prices for stainless steel luxury watches, and gold watches are starting to offer a lot of relative value for the additional investment that is required to obtain them. When it comes to gold luxury replica watches, arguably none are more iconic and instantly recognizable than the Rolex President, and this legendary model stands to be among the most popular collections from the brand on the pre-owned market in 2021.
