I really like watches, always have, and would like to start a collection of older watches. I have looked at a few and different types, now I don't know much so I'm just mainly going on asthetic value but would also like to get something that will keep it's value, be reliable, and possibly mean something.
I like chronograph, date right? lol, a lot of rectangle shaped cases have caught my eye.
Looking for opinions of brands, models, years, and info on where to research such things. I have just used ebay to look so far and was hoping to find out if these are good deals also.
I also would like to try my hand at small cleaning and repairs if theres links to things like that also.
would like to spend under $100 to start, maybe even get a couple for that and work up from there.
Oh yeah maybe this is crazy or at least far fetched but I always thought it would be cool to get some watches previously owned by 20's and '30 gangsters, Al Capone, Bugsy Moran, Machine Gun Kelly, do these exist? are they really rare to get ahold of?
