Hodinkee Posting: Comparing the Watch and Art Markets

Interesting posting on Hodinkee -- Something To Consider: The Average Lot In Christie's Post-War Art Sale Was Double The Value Of The Top Lot In Its Watch Sale.

And several advantages to watches:

  • you can wear them, 24/7
  • they indicate the time
  • they are easier to sneak into the house
  • they provide a relaxing ticking sound

Shown below . . . a Basquiat painting . . . recently sold for $110.5 million, as described HERE.

Folks, there's a lot of money in the world right about now.
