Excellent Review, Jeff!

Excellent job with the year-end review, particularly as it relates to the state of the market. I think you summed it up perfectly. I have used the "correction" to pick up a couple of very interesting Carreras and have also sold a meaningful Carrera at a strong price (albeit likely 15% lower than what could have been achieved in 2017). When passion is the main driver of buying or selling activity, the absolute price becomes less important, and the current market for Heuer (particularly the 60's Carreras and Autavias) leaves a lot of cushion in terms of value. Whether they move significantly from here is impossible to predict, but they've settled into (relatively) attainable price bands and have been steady over the past couple of years. All good things if you're in the market for good reasons!

Here's to another great year.


PS - we can't end this thread without pictures, can we? ;) This was the most recent Carrera purchase...a potentially unique 2447NST. More research to come in 2020.
