    That's not what he's asking.

    I'd sell as is and inform as best you can.

    Sell as is but be honest and upfront about that. New owner will probably have peace of mind being certain themselves after having it serviced.

    Why so combative? Dan wasn't asking if his watch needed servicing.

    I never service before selling. Leave that to the buyer as its highly dependent on them being OCD or not, ie you could quite easily service it and sell it to someone expecting atomic clock accuracy and spend an hour on it with a loupe and they would come back to you saying its not working and damaged (1 micron swirly on the inside of the clasp). More normal people would be happy to get a nice watch at a good price with a declining accuracy in line with that price so they can enjoy it for a couple of years before servicing it themselves. Im sure you know all this but make sure you explain the accuracy in the ad, even if its +-15 a day. Otherwise you may well get a request for a partial refund of a full service. Best of luck

    Sell as is. You'll never recoup the full cost of a service if you were to sell it afterwards.
