Definitely one of the most interesting sites that I met during my search for watches on the net is. Judicial auctions you can bid for almost everything, what has taken the justice or the bailiff in the one or other (bad finger?). Since watches are of course at. In addition to fashion brands such as Esprit, fossil & co. can be found occasionally real (vintage) honey by Rolex, Breitling and some other interesting brands. The ultimate advantage: One can assume that these vintage watches are real. They are tested in advance by Jewelers or expert and often made with the documents – including time value estimate-online. Regular look can be worthwhile here really. You just don’t expect that every week is a sweetheart here.
Best of BASELWORLD-2016-Yes, I know. You certainly more often saw as similar headlines last week.The one or the other watches magazine and Uhrenblog has already published its top ten. Of course to the gusto of the respective bloggers and editor.
With the best thing about blogging is Yes, if you get positive feedback from his readers. Anyone can “Rumhaten” in the network and controls.

To buy a vintage watch is not for everyone. Is it because you would hate to have round-the-clock used, another on the arm; be it because we simply do not have the time and leisure, is the topic of mechanical watches to work-including the sub-themes of repair, revision and “original or fake”.
And, at the latest since my article at Burj “3 affordable vintage watches for beginners” I know that is not everyone dares to buy an old clock. Even if it is less than 200 euros. And let’s certainly not, if under such articles are finding interest-driven and “fear-mongering” comments (from vintage dealers, who fear their margins?).
