I'm not talking about a specific watch, just generally speaking, would you/do you choose the original or the reissue and why? Is it purely down to availability or cost?
I ask as I've been looking into vintage poljots recently and discovered what a minefield it is for frankenwatches and fake/unoriginal dials. I know nothing of vintage watch collecting, so maybe it's a common problem across the board. There are plenty of reissues of the famous poljot designs however these can cost more than the originals... but at least with the new reissue you know what you're getting?
Do reissues have the same heritage appeal as the originals?
Curious to know others opinions.
