I think it depends on which model you are considering?the more common models from what I know does not depreciate much in value like snowflake and the limited editions models like peacock or sbgh267

Thinking of picking up a grand Seiko. Should I go brand new or pre-owned? Hows the deappreciation and resale value? At least 40%?

Definitely not the quartz model or limited edition models. Looking at the gmt models and classic 3 hands model.

Coughing out $7-8k for a GS not easy to swallow if deappreciation is hard wor.

Haha I am a causal watch person, willing to spend and enjoy a time piece but after awhile if the watch doesn't bring happiness to me then off it goes. So thus gathering more information before Splashing out.

Lost quite alot of $$$ buying micro brand watch brand new and selling them off. Davosa, steinhart, squale...etc.

Limited Editions for GS donít really a lot cost more than its regular production pieces. Can grab a LE if you can manage to find one that you like.

nice, what watch is this?

first time in this thread, any recommendations for a watch with the following characteristics:

- Low to Mid profile (ie quite thin but not very thin)
- Small to Medium dial (to fit my small wrist)
- Understated wrist strap (optional)
- any face shape
- interesting looking dial (bonus)
- Swiss (entry to mid level also can)
