Re: Fix It Before You Sell It
In Response To: Fix It Before You Sell It ()

: My recommendation would be to have the watch overhauled before
: trying to sell it.

: With the chrono button jammed, you will take a big haircut if you
: attempt to sell it "as is". Any purchaser will know
: that he will need to incur the cost of repair and fill face the
: risk that there is a real problem (for example, a part that is
: difficult to find) . . . this situation will result in your
: facing a big discount.

: In terms of where to sell, you will face big fees from an auction
: house, and the timeline can be long, from the time to send the
: watch to the time you receive the proceeds. My recommendation --
: sell it on ChronoTrader or eBay, and you will be months ahead of
: an auction house.

Awesome - thanks for the advice! (particularly coming from the OG of Heuers :-) )
