Actually Brook, I thought the 1st exec, eggshell with poly back 2447 was great value for the buyer, esp being the earliest and one of the rarest Carrera refs. Diff beast entirely to a std 2447s with starburst dial.
: The early hex back Carrera was on my radar, all in at 12,500CHF and
: thought I may have a chance until a bidder popped the price
: 2,000CHF from 10,000CHF. I thought the condition was very nice,
: with the dial and hands very clean (I had hoped the coffee aged
: lume would turn off bidders). Case was fairly sharp with very
: little signs of polishing. I have to start wrapping my head
: around these prices.....just have a hard time paying $14,900 for
: this watch when I sold a 2447SN, 21 months ago for $14,600.
: Looks like I have to wait until November when a 53,xxx serial
: number 2447S will come under the hammer. Until then I am off to
: HKG in two weeks to enjoy some dim sum and a couple of auctions.
: Hope some of the Heuer's made it into the OTD family.
: Be safe all - Brook
