Welcome to the World of Supply and Demand
In Response To: $14k for a $2k watch.... wow ()

Hodinkee originally sold 125 of these watches . . . I would guess that the number of orders was some multiple of that number . . . who knows, uninformed guess would be 3X / 4X / 5X.

So now, we are seeing this imbalance find equilibrium in the market . . . at the price of $13,955.

And I imagine that The Rake / Revolution doing a related Limited Edition only increased the demand for the Hodinkee LE.

Yep, as a neighbor used to say, "The world is about the funniest place to be right now".



: Having owned the Skipper, I can't imagine paying $14k for one...
: Yes, it has a truly beautiful dial - one of the best I've seen
: on a modern watch, actually - but the rest of the package is
: tangibly cheap. Especially the bargain-basement Sellita / DD
: chrono movement. This is a $2k watch, originally sold for $6k,
: now trading at more than twice that.
