Some Suggestions For Newcomers Who Want To Get Started With Antique Watches

For newbies, wanting to get an antique watch is undoubtedly a difficult task. Of course, if you go there arbitrarily, there may be rich gains, provided that you have not encountered a deceptive shameless watch dealer . Here are some suggestions for newcomers who have an idea to start an antique watch.

1. Have a goal. Take a moment to browse through auction catalogs or web pages and find your favorite watch. If you do not do this, the seller will recommend to you the watch he wants to sell to you, and it will certainly not give you a cheap price.

2. Do your homework. Once you know what you like, such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre full calendar in the 1950s, do some necessary homework to understand the background of this watch, and understand the description of this watch prototype. Often those features that are very simple and obvious on the original watch cannot be found on those ‘re-engraved’ watches. You can browse some watch websites (such as the Watch House and its forums) to see if anyone has done a comprehensive study of your favorite watch, or if there are any other related articles or books. On the homepage of the Watch House, there is a watch library that can be searched online, and there are a large number of watch parameter resources.

3. Learn to speak jargon. Take the time to learn what collectors and watch sellers often care about and need to know. For example, are all parts of the watch original or are some parts replaced? If so, by whom and when? Is this watch still under warranty? If so, where and how? Whether this watch has been reinstalled with the dial, and in some cases, it indicates that this watch has been dismantled and touched the dial (this is certainly not a good thing).

4. Make a few friends who know how to watch. The best way to learn about watch knowledge is to take the time to learn from watch collectors and other enthusiasts, who are your best and most trusted learning resources (not watch dealers).

5. Don’t be a fool. My final suggestion is to always assume that watch sellers are all bad guys. This may not sound very friendly, but it can prevent you from being deceived, unless you are sure that the antique watch you see is 100% original, but he tells you that is not the case. What you should do is to remain skeptical and let watch dealers find a way to prove to you that this watch is indeed worth what he describes to you.

Summary: The above experience is only for junior enthusiasts who want to buy an antique watch that has been discontinued and cannot be seen on the market. If you want to buy a watch that is available on the market, it is recommended that you start with regular channels. After all, there is no free lunch in the world. If you just want to save some money, sometimes it will only bring you greater losses. (Picture / Text Watch House Xiao Sen)
