I did and I bought a Seiko Diver's Automatic for $160. I have to say I'm very pleased with the purchase and wear it about 90% of the time so thanks btinl!
Buying online was great but what about buying at a pawn shop? I found a swiss made gold gucci watch a few weeks ago and put it on hold (this meant putting down $35 that I could easily get back) just in case it could be something worth getting.
The watch has a white dial, no numerals on the face but does have roman numerals on the bezel, and an hour and minute hand only. It's a little scratched up but I think a jeweler can do something about that.
Orgininally the pawn was selling the watch for $460 but after a generous discount the watch came out to $180. Should I pull the trigger? WWYOUD and why?
