  1. very good info, thanks for sharing

  2. A reputable watchmaker is essential because unnecessary repairs or other forms of chicanery can take place after you purchase the watch. Watches are sometimes Frankensteins that are worth little but look like a bargain. Good information, thanks Tim.

    Rarity means nothing without demand. What you want is a supply lower than the demand or something may be rare yet worth little. On the other hand you have some very common watches like a Rolex which has a high demand and yet it has good value.

    I cannot imagine any potential buyer or seller sending a stranger a copy of their passport or drivers license. I surely would not.

    Interesting points Tim, I never buy from EBay expensive watches, I need to see, touch and feel it, before I buy.
    This logic will probably make me miss some opportunities but it want no problem.
    Unless I agree with the buyer for a pickup to see the watch. Thanks for sharing.
