This is a bit off topic, but with coin shows coming back I am thinking watch and jewelry shows will also return. Are there any watch collectors here? I have never been to a watch and jewelry show before and I could use some advice if there is any to be had.
Basically, my watch broke and I now want a vintage one. The auction prices for those I am attracted to are in the $5,000 range. I really don't want to pay that much for a watch but if I that is the going rate for what I like I will.
If anyone knows of upcoming shows in the Northeast I would appreciate the info. Also any suggestions to avoid mistakes at the show would be good.
