    Help with a possible trade guys!

    Hi guys, I have the chance to trade 2 watches for one, and I wanted your opinions if I am doing the right choice by trading them? Here are the pictures of the watches being traded and the watch I would receive:

    So it's this omega seamaster cal. 420 from 1957:



    Plus this Longines from 1937 with cal 8L:



    For this 1940's IWC cal 83 with solid gold case:



    What do you guys think?

    Regards,

    Gonçalo

    I like the Longines the best, so I wouldn't go ahead with the trade. But that's just me.

    Well, feature wise, they are all pretty much the same: three handed manuals without date. So from that point of view, you get one and lose two. The IWC is a little more iconic but in my books not enough to warrant swapping two only slightly "inferior" (if inferior at all from that point if view) watches for it. I am not sure how many (or few) of the Cal. 83 were produced and whether the demand so much outstrips the supply that you are winning from the $$$ angle. If not, I simply wouldn't do it.

    Go with your gut.

    Only you can decide whether it is worth it.

    I know, my gut says to do the trade, but I want to hear the pros and cons, and the opinion of others first.

    It's not a bumper, it's a manual wind seamaster.
