I am trying to procure a vintage bulova accutron spaceview (the 'tuning fork' movement), I have a few questions and hope that the knowledgable ones in this forum can help me with:
1. I've looked through ebay, and a few online sites and found that there are several price ranges, from $300-400 till $1000-$2000. some are gold plated, limited edition, etc. I'm just looking for the baseline model... how much should I be expecting to for a baseline model that is in good condition?
2. What are the things in general i should ask the dealer, ask myself, examine before purchasing? I have never tried buying vintage before.
3. what are the things i should look out for specific for this model?
4. I'm not located in the u.s., and my country is not big on vintage watches so I don't think I'll be able to find it at a local watch shop. My only option seems to be online. Any recommended sellers and tips for getting online?
My questions are not very well phrased, please let me know how i can phrase my questions better.
Thanks in advance
