The economy may be exhibiting signs of a slowdown, but prices for high end watches continue to climb.
Consider the yellow metal Rolex Daytona 116508. Like all of its Daytona forebears, it can be a mechanised cosmograph that features as both timekeeper and glorified stopwatch, with three subdials that racecar motorists can make use of to measure rate and length.

Certified sellers are marketed out, and prices on the supplementary marketplace have got surpassed $50,000 – a record for the brand seemingly. (The list price is $34,650).
