An Easy Way To Get A New Watch
by JIM SHI
While it’s true that watches should be worn and enjoyed, when they start to spend more time sitting in a drawer than resting on your wrist, it’s probably time (pun intended) to move on. Still, trading an exceptional luxury timepiece like it's an old baseball card isn’t for everyone. But for those astute—and shrewd—enough to part with their favorite piece, or gamble their investments as they would stocks in a bear market, the adrenaline rush can be like no other.
"Watches are luxury items any way you look at it," explains Leonardo Solis, a 45-year-old Boston-based real estate investor, owner of International Guest House Inc., and avid watchaholic who buys and trades in luxury timepieces. "Our iPhones keep better time than any mechanical watch ever will, so you have to accept that you will be putting your hard-earned money on the line. But start small, and, as you grow financially, you can put some of your cash into bigger pieces, or more watches if that is the way you want to go."

Smartwatch Companies Try Focusing on Children
by SELINA WANG
With smart watches drawing lukewarm interest from consumers, some technology companies are trying a fresh approach: Market them to kids.
LG Electronics Inc., VTech Holdings Ltd. and Filip Technologies Inc. have all developed high-tech watches for children, undaunted by the slow progress the industry has made in pitching the devices to adults. They're betting that kids may be the ideal market for the gadgets, which can either keep tykes entertained or track their whereabouts. The watches can even teach a more old-fashioned skill: how to tell time.
While only about 1 in 5 grown-ups has interest in buying a smart watch, kids' models might be an easier sell, said Benjamin Arnold, an analyst at NPD Group Inc. They're typically cheaper, for one. And versions that can track children have obvious appeal to parents, who live in fear of losing small kids at a park or shopping mall. At the same time, the technology has drawn criticism for adding yet another electronic distraction.
