Spot on. That's exactly how it went with my first nice watch (a Rolex OQ). But somehow I'm happier to "own" my own scratches, rather than someone else's.
Thanks for all your input - what a great thread this is! I'm leaning towards watch B. I think the difference in the cleanness of the dials could well be a difference in the quality of the photography. Either way, I'll announce an "incoming" soon...
Yes, the bracelet has intrinsic value for the same price. I don't actually like it and I would wear the watch on a leather strap. But the bracelet doesn't wear down, so I will always be able to sell it on with an original JLC bracelet.The main ding is on the horizontal bars above the dial. It's more like a gouge and I'm pretty sure it's not buffable. It's not the worst thing but it is noticeable, whereas the case on watch B is flawless.It's an exquisite dilemma!
Would appreciate some purchasing advice. I've found two Reverso Grande Tailles in which I'm interested. Watch A has a flawless dial and is on the "beads of rice" metal bracelet. It has a few noticeable dings on the case. It comes with papers only, no box. Watch B has a flawless case and comes with box and papers. It's on a generic leather strap with original buckle. The dial looks a mite less clean than watch A's. They are the same price. What does the canny collector...

Any views on the JLC Reverso GT Shadow? I saw one in Paris at the weekend. The dial is a thing of beauty and cunning: at some angles the inner rectangle appears lighter than the outer; at others the reverse is true. (The watch seller described it as the "Double Reverso" for this reason.) But the matt grey steel case made me reluctant. It looks so non-luxurious, faintly military, and frankly cheap. Am I missing a crucial piece of aesthetic logic here? Example:
Case shape?
I think we should Make American Capes Again.
I was really asking if you could put some numbers to those currency symbols. I couldn't find any prices listed on the company's website.The pieces look impressive, not only in execution but also in design.
I watched this. He uses scissors, which are a machine.
