Re: Watch Guys / Hollywood Guys / Car Guys ? ? ?

: Yes, we can segment the possible buyers into various groups --
: the guys who collect watches, the guys who collect Hollywood
: memorabilia and the guys who collect cars.

: Maybe I have been wrong in suggesting that this should be evaluated
: as a piece of Hollywood memorabilia . . . best market is
: probably that of the car guys . . . a much bigger market, with
: much higher ticket items, than either the watch or Hollywood
: memorabilia markets. Of course, the magic of Steve McQueen, is
: that he bridges the car and Hollywood cultures, as evidence by
: the $3.75 million paid for his Bullitt Mustang . . . which sells
: for $40,000, with no provenance.

: I am guessing that some of the six documented McQueen Monacos are
: sitting in beautiful garages, with amazing displays of cars . .
: . the watches being the "cherries on top".
