Smart spending: Why old is still gold when it comes to vintage timepieces

When the first Apple iWatch was launched, there was speculation all round on whether it would make a dent in the high-priced Swiss watch industry that prizes itself on being an exclusive club that dictates official production standards, increases prices every year and guards its technologies closely.
