Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
I am thinking that the sale of the "All Lume Big Subs" (somewhere in or just below the $200K range) supports the pricing of the "Second Execution" hands Big Subs, at the $125,000 mark, but not necessarily vice versa.
We will await validation of the pricing of the "All Lume" guy.
: My take (trying to be totally impartial) is pretty similar,
: although I'd want to see an auction sale of an all lume hand
: 2446 before I consider that level a normal price. It is for sure
: one of the best and rarest of all vintage pieces so it makes
: sense to be valued highly. Rindts rose with hype for the
: re-edition, they are actually relatively common for Heuers,
: because unlike the Carrera one dial was in production for
: several years with virtually no alternative. Great watches but
: if I'm honest I'm not sure if $45k is market for the best, they
: seem a little all over the place and would say average price
: paid for good ones was less but the best deserve to be much
: higher than average ones. The OB was from memory b&p and new old
: stock (?) and I believe a rare variant in such guise is highly
: unusual so deserves a large premium, $50k back then was big so
: we would need to wait for another similar example to make
: judgments. Tthe recent one for sale in Geneva looked a good buy.
: Carrera 2447SN agreed, Orvis agreed x2 (the Heuer and A&F would
: be valued higher too), IDF agree.
: As you say just our opinions of course :)
