    What is a fair market price for a used B&R Military Type Vintage 126?

    Hi there,
    I am looking at a used Military 126, which I personally think looks amazing.

    My challenge currently is to gauge the right price for a used watch in the US in USD.

    The watch I am looking at appears to be in pretty good condition and I have to assume that the watch is authentic.

    The watch has been recently serviced (not sure when and what was done) and I dont know the actual age nor how many previous owners if any.

    The question to the BR experts here: What is a fair market price for a used watch of this type?

    Also, would I have to consider getting the watch serviced just to ensure all is good and if so, how much would that cost me (in the US).

    Finally, where could I purchase a new 126 Military so I can decide whether to purchase new vs. used.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Start from MSRP and then judge what you would pay for the product your viewing, sounds fair.

    I would also google pre-owned and take the average from the 'brick & mortar' stores and deduct a % from there.

    Thank you both for the suggestion. I talked to an AD but they dont carry the Vintage 126 Military and were not even able to provide me with a price.

    Now, the used one i am still looking at is going for $2,000. Would that be a fair price considering the watch would be in good condition?

    How much does the Military type going for new through AD's (or Gray Market for that matter)?

    I did a google search and the $2000 seems fair for a pre-owned. But due diligence, keep researching and ask for box/paperwork/warranty card. Also ask for closeups photos. Good Luck & post photos if you do get one.

    Cheers!

    Is anyone aware of the following retailer: www.watchguru.com?

    I am somewhat hesitant to consider these guys as I dont find any reviews or info about them.

    Here is a link of the watch: Watch Guru - Bell & Ross - Vintage 126 Chronograph

    Any thoughts?

    Never heard of them, have you tried posting in the Wanted Section? Also have you searched the Sale Sections?

    Good Luck!
