I have purchased 5 nice older russian wristwatches as a start (I am 50 and never owned a wristwatch....only 2 old pocket watches.....one a cortebert ) But NOW.....heck....I am in love with mostly vintage wristwatches. I like a lot of the trench watches I've seen on ebay.....and a lot of the Omegas and Vintage Girard Perregaux but it seems there might be a lot of "tourist" watches among them.
two examples :
RARE Aged 1924 Swiss Elegant Omega Watch Black Dial New Stainless Steel Case | eBay
1948 Military Soviet USSR Russian Red Army MOLNIJA KOMANDIRSKIE Stalin Watch EX | eBay
also.....any opinion on good stores or sellers to be looking at ?
anyone shop here for example ?
Antique SWISS Watches, Military WW1 - WW2 Watches items in abv1224 store on eBay!
any advice on good models or what constitutes a good vintage value for between $100 to $500 welcome. I'm not fanatical about a watch being 100% original....(rebuilt is fine but would hate to buy a horrible franken )
Thanks in advance to any mentors !
