Impulse buy a few years ago, sitting unused. Need to sell on B&S soon. Thoughts?

Crappy photo, not sure why I can't get it to display full size.

Perrelet Power Reserve.

anyone with thoughts on a vintage dress watch for $2000 or under (preferably a decent bit under) and where is a good place to shop for such a thing without fear of being ripped off? I'm itching for something dressy I can wear to formal events where my speedmaster isn't appropriate, but it would not make a lot of sense right now for me to pony up for the JLC MUTM 39 or maybe a reverso that I want. Vintage Omegas seem pretty pricey these days (though within my range). I also really love the Universal Geneve watches I keep seeing referenced on Hodinkee (esp. something with a calendar and moonphase). Or something pretty plain in stainless steel or white gold. Another option would be something like a Nomos, but I think I'd prefer something with a bit more ... something. Provenance or horological significance or uniqueness. Other thoughts about what I should be looking out for on timezone or somewhere else?

Have you checked out Longiness and Hamilton?

Look at the buy/sell section of the Purists.  Good source.  Most are very reputable.  Forget about white gold in that price range.

not so much. maybe a vintage hamilton could be cool, though i don't know why i think of them more as tool watch than dress watch. i haven't thought much about longines. there are a lot of gaps in my watch knowledge.

thanks, i haven't looked there at all. and i think you are right about gold. obviously that's just not going to happen given the price gold is these days.

Vintage JLC, LeCoutre appears in that range. Example below. I see lots on Ebay and fewer on TimeZone.

I would trust the TZ or Purists over Ebay.  At least you can ask for references, etc.  Ebay is a crap shoot.

Received my dark brown cordovan Toshi strap. What is old becomes new.
