Just discussing this with my wife the other day. Do you find that a name engraved inside the watch hurts the value, or do you find that it enhances your enjoyment of the piece?
What about when the case has a great big engraved initial in it?
I myself dont mind the outside engraving. I dont really like it, but its the watches' history. I could take it or leave it.
The inside engraving I love. I think if there were 2 identical watches on a table, and 1 had a name in it, that would be the one to go home for me. Just adds interest to it I guess.
