My grandfather recently passed away, and amongst the small items shared between the family was a Mark11 Jlc watch which was left to my father.
My predicament is that he is looking to sell the watch, and I would like keep in within the family so looking at the possibility of purchasing it myself, as a long term sentimental investment. My problem is that I have no idea what kind of value to put against the watch 1 - to be a sensible offer, and 2 - to be a sensible investment.
The watch does have some running issues, and my dad and Zaf have been in discussions about it. Zaf is clearly the right person to give it a home, although if I was to purchase it, he is also the right person to restore it to its working condition.
Either way, its a tough decision, and any advice would be greatly welcomed.
