Hello. Although I am not new to the world of watches, I am thinking about expanding my collection in to the area of vintage wrists. I have been a long time reader of this forum and I can see there is a wealth of knowledge amongst the members. I am hoping to tap into this and begin my education.
I'll keep my questions very simple since answers will depend on an infinite number of things.
-On what criteria do you evaluate a vintage piece?
-How often do vintage pieces require servicing?
-Are there any common pitfalls to avoid when purchasing something old?
-Any good resources for estimating value?
Just looking for general answers based on your own experiences.
