Do you think smart-watches will affect the overall value and appeal of luxury watches?

I love luxury watches. I think they look really nice and although they are expensive, I think they are worth it. Recently I saved up for a really nice watch that I want to buy but I am holding back because I am worried about smart-watches. Will luxury watches go out of style? Will they become useless and only good for the material with which they are made? Smart-watches offer features that normal watches simply cant.

For example, do you think it's a waste of money buying a nice rolex now?

I am not going to use the results of this poll as advice, I am just curious what other people think.

  • I like to believe we now live in a day and age where technology is now a tool and not a fashion or luxury statement. People still buy Porsche 911s because they are fantastic sports cars, and not because you can get adaptive cruise control and back up cameras.

    I see the gentleman of 2015 donning his Apple watch for the morning workout and upon completion and dressing for the day's business or leisure he clicks the clasp shut on the Rolex / Patek / Panerai / IWC
    And enjoys the luxury of a durable quality piece of engineering.
