10 dollars can consider la..200 i can buy one used Seiko 5. More worth it.
Don't quite understand this concept, it is not hard to polish modern Rolexes with no discernible difference, and the used market also doesn't seem to care about minor scratches.

If it's dings, then don't think this will help..

I think the owners wanted to protect the watch as much as they could.... they thinking of their resale value I guess?

But seriously this sticker nonsense got to end, very soon got stickers got car, phones and jewelleries liao.

At this point, I think the demand far outweights what a few hairline scratches will do to your perceive value. Especially if you have to spend $200 to avoid.. Mild scratches.

There's a difference, a phone is typically bought every 2 years, you have a clear plan to trade in the old phone 2 years ahead. Old phones are obsolete in 2 or 3 generations max.
