I posted this in the diver forum but then realized it might be better suited here.
Iím a newbie, first time posting here. Iíve been window shopping for months to figure out what I like and want in a ďrealĒ wrist watch. Well Iíve decided for an everyday watch I would like a diver, then I decided why buy a micro brand when I can go vintage! I can buy 2 or 3 older divers for the same price as a new micro brand, true they will need to be serviced where as the micro will not right out the gate but I am more of a vintage guy( have owned & used pocket watches for years, all at least 100 years old).
SO what you guys think of a Mortima Plongee as a first vintage diver watch? Iím asking regarding quality, not how it looks because the only opinion that matters regarding that is me :>) but regards to the quality, the build, would it be a good buy? How much is too much for it?
if your really interested in seeing the watch itís at catawiki auctions:
I canít put the link here cuz itís my first post but if you go to Catawiki and search : 14238981
Is the movement weak? Is it common? I live in Colorado, would it be difficult to get it serviced?
Can I buy better quality with the same amount of money? I donít know how to rate quality so you tell me if I should hold off and wait for a better more bang for my buck buy. THANKS GUYS!!!
thank you so much for the help guiding me along the path of this awesome addiction
