What do you think is a more realistic value is for the Rake Heuer and the Hodinkee Heuer? Long term will these be forgotten among collectors given the "cheap" movements?
: 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".
