Sadly, I have worn out the leather band on my watch, Steph. That is no reflection of the original product, but it it what is is . . .

I got a Moto Guzzi speedo watch off ebay. Was supposed to have a nice clear face of the Guzzi speedo gauge. But the watch I got had such a cloudy light and dark blotches in the face that it isn't worth wearing. Not worried about it as I only paid 99 cents for the watch.
I've been waiting for my Mr.Peanut watch to go up in value, so far no luck! :BEER:
You never mentioned what you paid.The price of the Euro has gone nuts since you bought the piece. The price of the Swiss franc has spiked way above the Euro. The base movement is an ETA 2824- considerd a prosaic, yet rugged piece used in a vast number of the sub $1,000 Swiss watches. The casework most likely was done by some Swiss subcontractor The dial by another company and the hands by a third. It may have been assembled by Junkers- or Junkers may just have marketed the deal (most likely).The cost of a simple mechanical piece like this new today is probably horrifying. You can thank nuevo riche Chinese, Arab, and Eastern Europeans for driving up the prices. At the same time, you can thank the Swatch Group for tightening the availability and pricing on the base movement.So to answer your question, will it appreciate? No. It's a "custom" contracted piece that is of value to the members of that group. There is nothing Junkers about it and it has no appeal to the greater watch collecting public. That doesn't mean it's a cheap or worthless watch. It's an honest movement and decent casework. The design is quite tasteful and restrained. Buying a new one would be obscenely expensive. Just wear the piece and make sure that you have it serviced every 5 years or so by someone competent (NOT some dope who will just "dip" the movement).
I've had to replace my band twice. The first I paid large $$$ for at a watch shop. It didn't last long. The second I just bought off of Ebay for about $8. It is comfortable leather, and has held up well.Sadly, my watch is damaged. I took it off to shower, and it fell onto a tile floor. It cracked the rear glass and sent a few glass bits into the mechanics. I'm not going to get it repaired until I am sure I can trust them. And I trust nobody. ~;
