    How much does a second hand Ball watch go for? Even a Limited Edition?

    I have came across one EHC Alligator being sold in my country(Malaysia) for a low price than I think it should be. It goes around RM6 k that's about 2K USD. Is it worth buying and having to keep it for many more years?

    Isn't the EHC Alligator a highly sought up piece? Why is it going for so low even as a second hand. Condition of the watch is mint. Hardly and scratches.Lume is quite dim.

    What's your opinion? Urgent!

    I do know discussing prices here is not good but I would like to know your opinion.

    It seems good price, so it only depends on how you want that watch.

    They are nice watches. But I wouldn't say they are sought after. I have seen some in shops. I don't know if that's a good price for a second hand watch. If you like the watch then go for it.

    Ohh. My side question is that does the LE watches have a good increment in value?

    One would think. Maybe it depends on the Brand.

    This was discussed in the thread a month or two ago. The conclusion in that thread was no. I think more it depends on how popular it is. It's been a while since I've seen one on the sales corner, but past sales really were in line with most EHC resales.

    I agree with Michael. As a more general comment, though, I would not buy a Ball with the hopes of it significantly increasing in value over the coming years--they are great watches, but watches themselves are usually not great investments, with a few rare exceptions.

    It's different if the watch was a Patak, Vachron, Breguet or an A.Lang. Just to name a few. These watches are a different ball game and come with hefty price tags. Even if the watch is made with a precious metal that can make it increase in price over time.
