Does anybody have experience in buying a watch from a relatively unknown independent watchmaker or micro brand?
I'm talking about brands such as Kikuchi Nakagawa, Parris daCosta Hayasima, David Lowinger, Sylvain Pinaud, Struthers Watchmakers etc. To my knowledge these brands haven't
been in business for a long time which raises a couple of questions like price/value, resale ability, servicing, reliability etc. especially given their price range.
I'm seriously considering buying a piece from one of these brands but the watch is in the 20k range so I'm a bit hesitant.
Is there something I should be looking out for? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
