Hey folks, this is my first post here, although I don't own any vintage watches.
I have a few questions for those more knowledgeable than me. At the end of the year I would like to buy a new watch and I thought that I could buy a vintage watch coming from a high end manufacturer like Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, JLC or Piaget.
I checked the prices and it turns out that something like 1500 to 3000+ USD are enough to buy an "affordable" hand wound watch in nice condition.
Another option would be a Grand Seiko, one of those powered by a 36k bph automatic movement.
Do you think that buying such a watch would be a good idea as opposed to choosing a modern watch? I intend to wear this piece 3-4 days a week, most of the time it will rest under a shirt with cuffs. I would be pleased with an accuracy of +/- 10-15 seconds per day.
I am asking this because I don't want to overlook any important aspects of getting into vintage watches.
