    INTERNATIONAL WATCH Co SCHAFFHAUSEN

    Im not a Watch Guru but I know IWC watches fetch 3 to 10K... Why can you pick up a Old INTERNATIONAL WATCH Co SCHAFFHAUSEN Collector watch on EBAY for under $600.00? can someone educate me?

    Could be fake, could be in bad condition, could be "non colletors".

    All watches loose value as soon as you buy them. If you buy used and then sell, its better. Watches (98%) are not a good investment, even though urban legends tell it different.

    Many things sell new at high prices but you can hardly give them away used.
    Rolex,Patek,JLC hold their value but IWC,UNand others don't...You can't give
    a Alain Silberctein away.
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.

    This is a marriage made in Poland, a pocket watch movement in a new case to be now worn on the wrist. Not a collectors item because it's originality has been destroyed by some back yard tinkerer.

    Recased pocket watch movement. Most collectors agree these are Frankenwatches. This one was originally in an open face case and that's why the small seconds hand is at 9 o'clock rather than where it should be at 6 o'clock. The dial is obviously not original. Personally I think this stuff is garbage but YMMV. Just don't try reselling to a serious collector.

    Well, if you read the description there is full disclosure of 'recased', OF pocket watch conversion, etc. therefore it is not an antique.

    Does anyone really know what time it is?
