My story -
Bought a Laco Aachen brand new for about $350 USD (including postage). Kept it for about 5 months then decided to sell it (non-hacking was slowly driving me mad).
I put it up in a Facebook watch Buy Swap Sell group and also on eBay at the same time. I put a $280 USD starting price on the watch for a 7-day auction. There were a surprising amount of bids and at the end I sold it for $382. Subtract $10 for eBay and Paypal fees and with the buyer paying for postage, I actually sold it for a $20 profit.
This is not indicative, obviously.
I can say that i have been looking for a second hand Laco Leipzig or Paderborn but they don't come up very often.
Either the turnover is low or (what I suspect) not many people are buying them in the first place.

Sold mine quite easily. I think once someone is shopping for fliegers, they're bound to include Laco on their list.
LACO isn't a hot brand, but used mechanical Fliegers are very much in demand. But if you do your research on WUS, you'll see that used Swiss mechanical LACO fliegers in the 39mm to 42mm sweetspot are selling for around $700, which is about 60% of the retail price.

They hold their value just fine compared to others.
I would buy used unless you are looking for a quartz which are fairly affordable anyway. You’ll get killed on the resale of a new automatic.

Same as above, better to buy a used Laco watch rather than take a huge hit
Don't the fees vary depending on the category these days?
