    Pierce 1940s one button chrono and Vintage flea market in Covent Garden

    Hi Folks

    I'm a newbie here but have started collecting watches for the last few years. I was at a local jeweller and came across this 1940s vintage pierce one button chrono in fantastic condition and needless to say was quite tempted!

    Do you guys perhaps know what is the ideal price range for this one? The jeweller quoted £800 but was happy to negotiate.

    Second question - I was at the flea market in Covent Garden this morning and saw lots of interesting watches at fantastic price point. Of course there are no warranties with these watches but just wanted to know whether anyone had experience buying from this place.

    Cheers guys

    1) Knowledge is power... I'd certainly be willing to negotiate at that price!! (i.e. seems quite high).

    2) Condition Condition Condition... always assume the watch will require service which will often double or triple the actual price.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
