I think everthing is so depressed at the moment and very few people have any spare cash, and a lot of people with negative equity cant borrow anymore, so i dont see its going to turn around for a long time yet, and if the government keep printing money we will end up like Rohdesia skint, so better buy a few watches somebody always wants one.

Buy a nice watch, wear it and enjoy it.

Don't think you can make much money on watches anyway- unless you buy broken (expensive) ones and repair them/recondition them to a high standard.

If you want to turn your £1000 into £2000, go to the roulette wheel at your local casino and pick a colour.

Chances are you'll walk away with nothing though!!

Treat yourself to a nice timepiece and wear it. Life's too short!

Just my two-bobs worth.

I think the US$ is heading for a fall this year.

Gold and silver will continue to rise from uncertainties in the currrency markets with silver outperforming gold. Gold mining stocks haven't seen the benefit of this yet for some reason and while retail gold sales have fallen by as much as 70% in places like Dubai there is a very strong demand for gold coins and investment bars. So I agree with potz buy some gold coins/bars if you can find them .... failing that ... a watch, you might not make much money on it but its nicer than coins :D

Physical silver, said it for more than a year, on a higher end colored flawless diamonds.

Silver was up to almost $14 last year, dropped in the market crashes this year, late last, to about $9. I put money back into it again at $9.63, almost back up to $14. I estimate due to an actual physical shortage in silver and the increasing demand it will hit $20 soon enough gaining back, to put it simply, its margin against gold. Paper silver and physical sliver are two different animals, what happens on paper is not reflecting the scope of where silver could go.

I'd say keep it in the bank :D only because I was also thinking the same a couple of months ago, picked some shares that I thought couldn't go down any further.... you guessed it, they've slipped by about another third :o

Thankfully I got some great advice from a couple of valued members on here and didn't invest

I'd go for a watch, far more practical.

Closed at $17.55 today. Hope some of you plunked it down on silver when it was sub 10 bucks. Still wondering when it will break $20 with gold now breaking 1K for a few weeks.
