Long time lurker in here, and before that I just traded from the bay out of shere boredom, like many blokes watches come and go for about a few months each, until I settled on Seiko as a brand.
But along the way I've bought well and made money, made about 50 dollars on most, $150 on an old Seamaster for example.
Got me thinking, I'm now onto an Alpinist, paid for purely from these 'profits', actually never intended to sell this thought because it was an aim to get to this level. No money in this, its a keeper, but how easy would it be to continue to trade and end up with a Grand Seiko? Could I get there and end up with a Grand for nothing? If so, what models offer best value? I've done well on Seiko divers, they go for silly money in the UK and there seems a never ending stream of buyers for refurbed 6 series, I think I could make it just buying privately in here and then using the auction redmist to help make a profit.
Can it be done, can a Grand Seiko be traded for nothing?
