1. First of all we buy what we like. Taste is the number one. Whatever the brand, when it’s happy what can I say? But do not be surprised if your tastes change from time to time. A model is now happy, bored want to model B tomorrow, next week want to model A again, and so on. A fellow has hundreds of antique watches from various brands and price ranges that far because it is the basic purchase liking.
2. Both note the condition. Try to buy a seorisinil may be on store hours. Even if there are not original, should the parts that can still be tolerated, such as clock and round the glass (crown). There are people who make an engraving plate (redial or refinish) there is not. There are also people who put dirty plates so that the authenticity of any origin is due to aging would be great if maintained.
3. Try to buy a whole is still running normally. Note the condition of machinery, precision, sound etc. seconds. From the sound only we could know the condition of the engine. If the problem of slowness or speed of the clock must be running as well tolerated as no more than 5 minutes. look at watches antique shop who is experienced and professional.
4. Another consideration, buy the types that are “collectors” items eg watches Nixon Tide. In addition to easily sell it back (if forced), has invited the Nixon 4220 watches pride and its value often increases over time.
5. Another consideration, price. It is best to buy below the standard price, means we must first know the approximate price of a standard look for in antique watches store.Even if the above standard rates, must be a reason, ie a truly special conditions, is really rare, or really like. Regarding the price is below the standard price of this we also need to be clear, what standards we use. standards if we use the standard purchase price of the merchant, well we’re not going to be the goods. Unless we have direct access to the source of the goods of the merchant or store watches.
6. In the collection there should be “theme” it. For example a particular brand of sports collections, special collections diver, a collection of a certain era of the course, and so on. With so we have plenty of “stories” and have a peculiarity in our collection. In addition also a way to put the brakes on our eyes in the dark so as not to buy all the beautiful watches.
