Re: What are the best buys in vintage watches today?

It would be my opinion the watch market as a whole is down. I'm learning they are not necessarily a good investment. That being said if it is in really good shape there is a demand for it. Wait and buy good solid items. Watches have become a piece of jewelry and not an essential. Find what you like ...

On this COLD Friday in Green Bay, (awoke to -9!) :shock: I will wishfully wear the 71' Sea Breeze III with the original JB Champion bracelet.

Re: Help me learn: why re-dails are mostly ok here?

Many refinished dials are great! One needs to understand what you are getting and it can vary from dial to dial and tolerance can vary from collector to collector.

Re: Post Your Favorite Hamilton Purchase of 2018

There are some beautiful watches here!

My Holy Grail came available with Dan sharing with me there was a 53' Tildon cld on the Heritage site. I was able to purchase it. It is the only one I have ever seen.

My "cld" collection is complete "short of some dial variations."
