Found this one in a Jewelry store that's closing out. 40% off. Nothing special, but I had been looking for a simple slim face, with a leather strap for quite a while now.

Wow, that's an amazing likeness to the 1960s Omega Seamaster watches that I love so much.

Now I have something to work towards to replace this one! What's the market value of those these days?

Another incoming.
Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military.
It's a homage to the super rare Rolex Submariner 5517 Mil-Sub.

"The 5517 was a military issue Submariner for the British Royal Navy in the early 70’s.

One could imagine given the popularity of vintage Submariners, original 5517’s are highly sought after, ultra-rare grails within the group. Considering around 1000 were ever issued, and they are legitimately parts of Naval and watch making history, it is not surprising that they go for around $100k at auction."
-Quoted from wornandwound.com

Don't think I'll ever be able to afford a $100,000 watch so this will do

They range quite a bit... the 1950s and earlier ones are similar aesthetically but use a different movement, they are called "bumpers" and are worth $150 - $250 for an unrestored but halfway decent stainless example. The one I posted is an early 60s model and they are quite a bit more desirable, they are worth $300 - $500 for an unrestored stainless model and up to around $1200 for a "like brand new" restored one. It's worth noting that there are tons of reputable watchmakers who restore these watches but not using 100% original parts - sort of like restoring a classic car but using wheels from a slightly different year, etc. They look great and are functionally perfect but are from a collectability perspective, not quite as valuable.

These are all automatic watches. The one thing to watch out for is that dress watches in these time periods were MUCH smaller than now... 95% of those watches from that vintage are around 35mm in diameter and 10mm thick.

A "cheap" (and mediocre condition) 50s bumper:

A "cheap" 60s automatic:

A fully restored 60s automatic with some gold (this is not an original dial, but a good reproduction with the additional Tiffany's logo which is definitely a negative on the value). Great looking though...

Just a heads up, if anyone is looking for a Seiko watch, Timeco (I think that's the name) in Lougheed mall has all of their Seiko watches for 50% Off.

When buying a watch to own, do you guys consider resale value?

Any recommendation of a good site to buy one from? Somebody posted a site in this thread that had some nice stuff at decent prices, but I've had no luck finding the post amongst all the pages. Preferably a Canadian based site to avoid duty and all that crap.

the quartz movement is very loud, as in you can be in a room and with your arm on the table and you'll still hear the movement pieces.

the retro indiglo is a great touch though, and pair it with some nato/zulu bands at the same time, great buy for $30.
