    What are Bell n Ross watches like? Reliability? Resale? Precision?

    I have been eyeing them on Chrono 24 and they definitely have a unique look. In build quality and reliability and resale value how would they compare to Omega, Panerai or Breitling?

    What about something like this new but on the gray market?


    This is the MSRP

    This is what I can buy it for on the gray market brand new

    Sold them for just over three years, I though they were just overpriced schlock.

    Cool watches. Never had a issue. Just don’t over pay. Great used deals out there

    Great watches. Resale isn't like a rolex or omega though. I'm stuck with a lum tec that will loose half its price if I ever get it sold....

    If you're buying a watch for its resale value, then you need to stick to what the crowd is all after. And this also changes with time so nothing is infallible. If you want something unique that not everyone has, then don't look at resale value cause resale value is determined by market sentiment which in turn is based on what the crowd is after (again).

    Based on quality and reliability, I think Bell & Ross watches are constructed very well. No issues with them over my 8 years of experience. I would recommend you go and try it on first and see how you feel about it. Cause ultimately, only through trying it on can you tell whether you like it based on its fit and aesthetically.

    Most everything sold from under $4K from 2002 to 2005, even TAG, David Yurman and Gucci.

    Did they treat you badly as a dealer ?

    We all cheered when the line was transferred, it meant a lot more room for Corum. The last one I sold, Type Demineur, was in August 2005. They just couldn't stand
    up to a customer with good eye. All 'facade', little substance.

    I've owned a V2-94 Garde Cotes version for about 20 months and have been very pleased with how it has held up and performed.
