I have the opportunity to purchase a great looking (to my eyes at least) chronograph from a vintage watch dealer. I'm pretty new to the whole vintage thing and was looking into acquiring a Breitling Top Time as I love the clean design lines and pushers.
Anyways, while looking for a Top Time, I came across a very interesting watch - a Bravingtons Renown chronograph. It looks almost identical to a Breitling Top Time and has a Valjoux 7733 movement.
The seller is asking for $1200.
From the pics, the watch looks like it's in great shape. It's been serviced so it runs great.
I know Top Time's can run anywhere from $1500-4000 so I'm thinking this is a pretty good deal.
However, being that it's not a well known name brand like Breitling or Heuer, I'm wondering if $1200 is a bit much? Would love your opinions on this.
About Bravingtons: I've done searches and from what I can tell, they used to be a high-end jewelry shop in London that made their own brand of watches. There's very little information about these guys online so I thought I'd ask the experts here.
