Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

Here's a nice one I'd be willing to sell you and there are a number of sold listings on ebay. Tissot Navigator chronograph. If I recall correctly, it shares it's movement with Omegas from the same period (1970s). It's a nice size at 38mm and is a good timekeeper. Looks to be a lovely watch but not ...

Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

Thanks very much - all good and valid points and I genuinely do appreciate the help. I'm going to pass on the watch (I do not have $1000 burning a hole) and keep my eye out for other vintage Chronographs. If anyone has a suggestion of a particular watchmaker I should look out for - I'm all ears. Tha...

Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

I suppose it's a case of not knowing if we're comparing like for like. The watches I've seen on eBay are not the same models and are in relatively poor condition. I don't just mean watches that require a service but watches that would clearly require a complete restoration in order to come close to ...

Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

Thanks. The first responder was kind enough to offer a link to sold on eBay but I've also seen them go for much higher than those prices hence my trying to reach out to anyone that has experience of the brand as what I can find is somewhat inconclusive. Appreciate all responses however.

Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

That's a fair point but do you have any specific experience of Olma Chronographs and if so what do you believe their market value to be? Thanks

Re: Olma Chronograph Advice

Thanks very much for the response. The watch is being sold online. The case is stainless steel. I can't seem to add a photo here for some reason but here's a link to a jpg: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cydqwj83wg1gwaw/watch.jpg?dl=0 I've done some further searching at other online dealer sites and I'm ...

Olma Chronograph Advice

Hi - Im considering the purchase of an Olma Chronograph from the 1950s. Knowing very little about this watchmaker and their value, would it be insane to spend over $1,000 for such a timepiece? Would this tally with market value for such a watch? It's been fully serviced and is in excellent condition...
