I have grey Aqua Terra (41mm), with Co Axial 8500 movement. I bought that watch in 2012.
It will probably soon go to service (nothing wrong with it but regular service). Now I got idea that I could maybe buy new Aqua Terra Master Chornometar and to sell "old" one.
What do you think about it. Is it worth, in your opinion, to do such swap just to get new watch. I know that probably it is not necessary if you are not into watches...
I still like my "old" Aqua Terra and I have no reason to change it but also on the other side new one is really nice and would like to have new movement too.
I can't decide what I like more: time spent with my old watch which will soon be 10 years or getting new watch with newer watch with new movement. Would it be waste of money or maybe not bad investment (new one holds better value?)
I would probably go in that direction but one thing really bothers me, and that is finding buyer for my current watch. So do you maybe know if any AD would take used watches and deduct price of new one for its value (like buying new car?). I would even accept lower price just not to have to sell it privately. If you know any AD form Europe that is willing to do so please let me know.
Also what is realistic price that one could get from AD (or OB) in Europe if I decide to buy new Aqua Terra?
And what would be realistic price to expect for my used AT, which is probably due to service soon. I checked chrono24 and I see that it is in range of 2.700 - 3.500€.
