    Harry Redknapp generally sports a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, here he is helping to advertise Watches of Switzerland

    Clearly a man of taste, but Audemars Piguet produced several models under the 'Royal Oak' banner. Tasteful models such as this:



    and less-than-tasteful 'blingy' models such as this one:



    Amongst collectors of expensive watches, Audemars Piguet have always been preferred over the likes of Omega and Rolex.

    I got it wrong anyway, Harry wears a Hublot Big Bang (very similar to the blingy AP Royal Oak Offshore model).

    Although it's true AP watches hold their value Rolex and Patek do better on the second hand market, look at the prices just the stainless steel versions of the Daytona and Nautilus change hands for and my humble Explorer 2 & Submariner have both almost doubled in value. Even the previously unfancied Datejust is selling for over retail!

    I don't care how expensive they are, IMO they are all hideous to look at: https://www.richardmille.com/collections

    (I assume they are as expensive as they are because each one is hand made to order.)

    My Rolex was bought for me by my parents 50 years ago, so has obvious sentimental value as well as having performed impeccably over the years. It has been all over the world with me, and suffered temperature extremes of -20C to +40C.

    However if money was no object, today I would be looking at: Audemars Piguet; Vacheron Constantin; Patek Philippe. and Jeager-LeCoultre first, before other marques.
