Friends and acquaintances ask me like, where can I buy my watches. So here are some shopping tips:
EBay-the online classic If I call a favorite source for my watches eBay then it throws often surprise. I made the best purchases but is actually on this auction platform. Ultimately, my passion for vintage watches has started here. First with watches under 100 euro, then up to 200, 500, 750…-you know that.
A few years ago one could make good bargains on eBay-especially what Omega Chronographs from the 70s and 80s angeht(z.B. Omega Speedmaster 4.5 (Partner-Link).)
This is today still possible, requires but little more patience.
The most important requirement is that you a little acquainted with in something more valuable clocks and worked with them in advance. Since helps your own research-in forums and online; Information collect and search in the Google image database. Best model name type in and go to “Images”. So you get a feeling for it quickly, whether at a range with the desired clock everything is true-or not just.
“Cheaper” vintage watches, simple three pointer watches by Seiko, Tissot, Certina and omegas (E.g. Seamaster (quartz)-affiliate link), are priced under 300 euros, you can strike with less concern. Always important: A photo of the clean movement it should be in addition to a detailed description. In particular, the higher is the expected price of the watch. Also, to avoid such bid for a quartz watch, although it has offered on a supposedly mechanical. Especially look closely must one for example, when the Seamaster Professional 200 m (affiliate link). She is also known in Pre-Bond . The mechanical and the quartz version look very similar-and the quartz version is marked on the dial does not as such. The difference can be a few hundred euros. So, eyes on.
And: in general I prefer eBay seller with top reviews and PayPal payment option. When making purchases from abroad bear in mind always shipping and customs.
Who generally has-get pleasure on such vintage watches this way: Vintage Chronos or Omega vintage watches (ebayPartner-links).
And what about Rolex & co.? My advice only due to the purchase of vintage Rolex watches on theeliteswatches.com. Especially as far as the popular sports models of Submariner, sea dweller, GMT, Explorer etc. Here, I would prefer proven (online) dealers or so-called grey dealer . Some of them have however also eBay accounts-it must be said that to be fair. Not every eBay Rolex so just falls into the category “suspect”. I even dared once and bought a smaller Rolex (70/80s Oysterdate precision, hand-wound, ref. 6694) for under 1,000 euros for a private individual. Not without some luck. Who is so Tan…
Sales-corner of the R-L-X Forum is an another vintage Rolex tip. Here longtime members and dealers sell first and foremost-like other-watches. Council, action, and opinions on these and other Rolex offerings on the NET can be found in the Forum itself – in the non-public and paid Shopping Guide. The 3-day pass for €5 or €15 for 3 months premium membership are money well spent when purchasing such a watch.
As far as the subject of watches and Rolex purchase on eBay. In two other parts I will introduce some interesting alternatives you-including practical apps.
