Apologies if Iím asking a question thatís been addressed on the forums. I searched for previous posts but couldnít find anything on this particular subject.
I looking to purchase an old watch (~50 years old). This is my first real watch purchase so Iím understandably a bit nervous. Itís from a reputable seller on eBay (>800 reviews with 100% positive feedback) and reputable watchmaker. I would not have reservations about purchasing a watch thatís 10-20 years old, but 40-50 seems like it may come with challenges since I donít know how well the watch has been kept over the years.
My main categories of questions are:
1) What should I ask the seller?
2) Should I do anything w/ the watch once I receive it?
3) Any other words of advice to a newb?
