    Question JLC ATMOS for sale, is this a worthwhile price?

    Hello all. Is this a good deal or not? There is an JLC ATMOS clock for sale at an estate sale for today's price of $1,995. I saw a sales brochure that this clock is $3000 new. I am hoping it can go down to $1k tomorrow, but is $1k or even this $2k even worth it? You can get the same one on ebay for $1200-1800. Thanks!

    Well... There's yer answer. I think you answered yer own question.
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends don't let friends buy G-Schlocks.


    Some of my bracelets and straps cost more than all of my friends watches... not a WIS in the bunch!

    This is a very old Atmos, and if you visit a watchmaker in your neighborhood, you'll probably find a few available for sale for under $1000. The real question is whether it is working properly, as the bellows that charges the movement can be expensive to replace. More generally, they are a precision instrument that can be easily damaged if not properly secured before moving them.

    You may want to consider the cost of a service before buying a used one.

    I have a Speedy I had serviced through my local watchmaker and he said anything Swiss made will typically be $700-800. I asked the lady running the show if I can put an offer down and said $200 and she said no, even with me telling her that plus the service fee above to sell on ebay to make a little money is what makes sense. But again, I live in a free flowing money area where pretentious edited drop loads of money on ridiculous things. I love my Speedy and got to say at 4:30 facing South, this is the most enjoyable sight I can imagine with something so small!
