Thread Starter 
While killing time on the forum on saw that Overstock sell Jaeger. I have always wanted a Reverso or a Grande Date...is this a good price for this watch? Any codes for 15% off?

You can talk any retailer down 20% on a watch. 30% is within the bounds of possibility. So if Overstock is listing the correct MSRP and you really want the watch, it's not a bad price.

i've seen a few of these on timezone.com in the buy/sell for under 5K if you're ok with second hand...

Try to get a near-new used one from a reputable seller on timezone. JLC's do not hold their value well in secondary markets... you'll save at least $2000.

No that is not a good price, and you should never buy a JLC (or any watch for that matter) new.

As soon as you buy it the watch loses a bunch of value. However, they depreciate very slowly after that, and can often go up. Luxury watches like JLC are frequently maintained in excellent condition, and it is hard to tell a new one from a used one.

I bought a used reverso that I wear all the time for about $3,500.00. I'm pretty sure if I sold it today I could sell it for $3,500.00.

If you are dead set on a new watch buy it from a reputable dealer - you can usually get between 20 - 30% off (unless its a rolex) and often you can do better.

Some people enjoy doing so.

+1. jjl isn't looking for an arbitrage opportunity. There is a certain amount of peace of mind that comes from buying a watch NIB with all papers.

I think the Reverso Grande at that price is a decent deal.

IMHO, the JLC reverso is overpriced. I'd only buy new only if I can't find a particular watch I want with box, papers, and certified documents. I'd not mind buying used if all the documents are there. I just don't get people buying watches over 5K without box and papers.

jeez, that is some crazy advice...'never buy JLC or other watch new...??' I wouldn't buy a used watch, myself.

Depending on the size and type of JLC you're looking for, you might consider checking the price you've found against those at www.prestigetime.com and www.watchclick.com I have purchased watches from both of these sites, and have been nothing but happy with both (one JLC reverso classique, one Omega).

personally, I'd buy this one and slap a black croc strap on it:

I got a Reverso Grande Date at Schubot (Detroit) for less than that during the holidays. It was 40% off the 2007 list price so that is not a great deal from Overstock

Not that impressive a watch in pictures but stunning in person.

Yes, the son owns it currently afaik and they were liquidating the inventory at the end of the year for the transfer, regular customers got the first shot in November. You won't find that watch there at that price now.
