Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
I don't spend much time following the market, but it does seem that the early Carreras have finally broken out of their range, and moved up significantly over the last few months.
Perhaps others can comment, but it seems that some of the Carreras that for years seemed locked into the $3,000 to $6,000 range, are now north of the $10,000 / $12,000 mark. Something about a rising tide lifting all ships or that nature abhors a vacuum.
: Thanks for that, Jeff. Some very interesting lots in Christie's,
: and I would add one more auction (not in Geneva) to the list -
: the Phillip's Hong Kong Auction on May 30th.
: Link to Phillips HK (15 Heuers):
: Of particular note for me:
: The very nice Rindt Autavias in Phillips HK and Christie's -
: Will they continue to fetch Daytona prices at auction? If so, it
: would seem to substantiate a few "blips" in previous
: auctions. These are two of the nicest examples to hit the block
: in a while (in my opinion).
: The Rare Carreras - Carreras have seemed to be overshadowed
: by screwback Autavias in the past year, but there are a few in
: these auctions that I expect to make some noise. The Yachting
: and SN in Christie's, as well as the NST and Volvo NST in the HK
: The Ugly Ducklings...Camaros - Camaros have never seemed to
: perform well at auction. Will this wave finally reverse course
: for them? Or will the case shape just remain an enigma to
: discerning collectors?
