Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
The other brands watched with envy, in 2016 and 2017, as the prices of the Heuers rose spectacularly. These Heuer prices are now giving back a little of their gains . . . which I have characterized as a "correction".
OK for the other brands to surge ahead now, and this sort of rotation between brands, that are generally in the same space, is natural. I expect that the Rolex surge has led the market, then and now. I don't really follow the action in other sport / chronograph brands -- Omega; Breitling; Longines; etc.
I've looked at the Sotheby's results again, and -- as a Heuer collector -- I don't see any cause for concern. The watches seemed to be nothing special; the prices seem OK.
: However many average Rolex\PP did spectacularly well.
