Buying a used watch in Switzerland - thoughts?

Jump to last reply

Hey, I'm taking a trip to Switzerland soon and I am interested in buying a used watch. Looking for a vintage piece but nothing crazy, as I would hope to spend between $300 and $1000 if I found something nice.

I am wondering if this sounds like a good idea? I am particularly interested if locals can advise me as whether I should expect to find a healthy selection of used watches during my travels, and what I can expect in terms of prices. Given the fluctuation in exchange rates, some of the similar posts from 2011 may be outdated.

I'm hoping that there will be a good selection. And given the large selection, I am hoping prices aren't crazy high. I do live in Manhattan and have easy access to loads of watches. But I thought it would be fun to buy a watch in Switzerland.

Thoughts?
