    Krieger Gigantium - really $3000?

    Hello. I am new to these boards and need to ask this questions to all our enthusiasts. I am receiving a watch on trade for some design work I've done for a client, and I know nothing of the brand. Any insight would be hugely beneficial as I will most likely be posting this for sale as soon as I get it.

    I've gone to their site and see the $2950 MSRP - but what is this/their brand really worth?

    Do not know what it is worth or goes for. I wouldn't pull the trigger on that one whatever the specs are. A new competitor for the "ugly watch" thread. Sorry. to say. Get cash.
    Kind regards

    At one time Krieger was known for producing some really interesting and attractive chronometers that showed both tidal and lunar information. Those watches were notable for an elegant, simple and easily read display. Several years ago I stopped looking at their watches after their designs became more trendy and flashy. I see they are continuing down that road.

    You may want to contact the Pawn Stars in Vegas for a valuation...
    Or search Ebay.

    You may want to switch back to cash instead of merchandise for payment.

    My little eye spies a "Made in Switzerland" on the dial?

    That would be a snap to wind, even if you were all thumbs, besides being dangerous
    to wear.

    Yes. One set of specs I've found says: "Swiss ETA hand wound mechanical". The specs seem to indicate a rather decent watch. I am just unsure to even put it up for sale here... just to get laughed off the boards afterwards.

    I doubt you'll be laughed off the boards, but you wont see anything near $3000 for it. It's probably a decent watch mecanically (its kind of hard to go wrong with the parts involved) but the look and design is, ehrm, an acquired taste I believe.

    Ask for cash.

    That crown is a bit too small and dainty for my liking....

    It's only worth what someone will pay. A quick search on ebay shows that most are not selling unless they are under $1000 or so. I wouldn't pay that much when so many other quality brands are available, in high demand, and will be a lot less money.
