I'm looking to buy a pre-owned laco pilot watch from a seller. I don't have experience in getting an automatic or mechanical watch, what should I be looking out for? I hope there aren't any fakes for laco, since it is not consider a mainstream brand. Any laco owners can share some guidance on how to tell a laco watch authenticity?

Which model? As long as got box and papers (esp from a reputable source) should be quite safe, it isn't expensive or popular enough to warrant a high quality fake. Just do your homework beforehand and make sure that things look legit and close to the real deal. If there are signs of poor quality or QC, that's a giveaway. Not hard to tell.

Also, buy the seller. Would stay away from new Carousell accounts. If he seems to have a ton of good reviews, and also seems to be selling legit higher end stuff, someone who can afford Rolex is unlikely to bother with a Laco fake.

If not confident, get an experienced friend to go along or don't buy.

Or buy, and be happy with it anyways, ignorance is bliss.

Nothing new ah, chronograph will be higher price one.

For nonprecious material like steel - mechanical chrono will be $940 for complete service (I think before GST).

Which is why it is probably better to buy a Speedmaster under warranty or recently serviced. Play watch cannot just think of buy or resale value, servicing is no joke if you have many pieces.
