I'm almost afraid to ask this for fear of sounding stupid, but here goes.
I know most ladies vintage diamond watches are valued at the cost of the stones and the gold content, with a negligible amount added for an interesting movement.
My question is: Does a high profile maker (such as Rolex) add an appreciable amount to that value?
I'm not asking for a figure here, guys. I know you won't value watches and I totally understand why. But I'd like to know if a similarly tricked out Rolex in approximately the same condition might fetch more than a lesser known brand.
Thanks for any help you can give.
