I'm in need of guidance, I've just bought a 50's vintage Bucherer watch with chronograph/two dials on the face and a Lemania movment.
The watch is manual wind and after it is completely wound will keep good time for up to 12-15 hours and them lose 10 minutes in the proceeding hour. It keeps running but accurate time is a joke then until it stops.
I've got the option of returning it to the buyer who is not a shop but am unsure.
As collectors.....do some or all of you only collect watches that run perfectly? would you keep a watch that neede winding twice a day?
I visited a watch repaired and he said that was my choice...wind it twice a day or spend Â£200 to get it repaired..but there is no gaurantee that once it's taken appart all can be fixed.
