Need Input

Post by sotexas_spi » Fri Jun 25, 2021 1:46 pm

First, thank you to Radar-X for his quick response and help.
So...here it is.....while a member of the old BDWF I was fortunate to purchase 2 new Accutron watches at fantastic prices, the VX200 Chrono and the Blue dial models.
I am forced to put both on the market for sale, but in my limited abilities regarding the interweb, I can't find any current values for either watches. I tried the 'bay and other sites, but can't find a recent price.
Of course, both watches have the normal light scratches, and the bracelet for the Blue dial lost a side link so I purchased a quality foam band (still have the bracelet). The chrono still has the original bracelet.
I may try to sell them as a package, but that depends on what the market dictates.
So....I don't know if it's kosher for members to post prices in the discussion, and I don't want to start a bidding war in this post, after I am able to see some current "sold" prices, I will post in the For Sale forum.
And, thank you all for your help
(...I haven't looked at the whole membership roster, but so far Conjurer and JAS...are names I remember from the old BDWF, are there others?.....this was over 10 years ago. I have great memories of our interactions way back then.
And I thank you in advance.

The blue VX-200 should go for $400+. The chrono for north of $750

And welcome back.

Those prices seem reasonable, although a little high. I would guess the $500 price would be a little more appropriate.

...'preciate the posts, helps alot. Now if I can take some decent photos. Also, I need to have the bracelet assembled less the missing side link for the blue dial. ...probably affects the price?
Again, thanx.

Best of luck, texas. I can tell your intentions are quite good with all this.
