So I'm just too new to the vintage side of watches and fearful of spending stupidly because of looks. As a baseline, I much prefer Tri compax chrono's with 12 hour timer over 45min versions. If you were to set aside condition as a constant and taste for design aside (I've now removed most of what makes vintage watch collecting fun, sorry) and wanted to budget under $1,000 and can find a tri compax, would any of these brands be a better investment down the line if I decide to sell? I'm not a dealer, but rather try to buy things I like that wrst case I can come close to breaking even if I decide to change or upgrade, but not lose too much. The brands I'm trying to decide between are Dugena, Lanco and Croton. The Wakmann's are out of my budget as are some of the other brands. Dugena has been my favorite with I believe the Valjoux 7763 manual wind. Any thoughts would be appreciated so I make a more informed decision. New watches are so much easier to judge and compare when vintage either has no comparable or just too many variations.
