The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Darren's post sums up my thoughts more succinctly then I ever could! I have my reservations in exactly the same way as Darren does.
Well done Rich on putting the site together - quite an undertaking to keep it up to date.
: Firstly i have to commend Rich for taking on such a large (&
: seemingly overwhelming) task.
: Without having checked every single model listed, it does seem to
: me that the price ranges seem +/- in line with my own beleifs.
: Seeing the table set up with its 6 prices for each model (
: depending on condition & seller ) does seem very defining !
: Will this now dictate both buyers & sellers expectations.
: Previously the OTD version did feel like a price guide, this has
: more of a designation of price feel to it.
: Am i just being overly touchy on this issue. Our little corner of
: the world has been a wonderful safe kindergarten to play in for
: a long time now but we have all seen the general prices of Heuer
: increasing and felt the traffic flow of new interest on the
: forum, is this the cost of popularity & awareness, a
: stricter structure such as we see on other premium watch brands
: (Rolex leaps to mind) ?
: I have been willing to pay premium prices for rarer peices but
: still enjoy the thrill of chase & my chance of "scoring
: a bargain" whether it be ebay or any other source. I only
: hope this easily located internet price guide doesn't eliminate
: those golden buy-it-now ebay moments that occasionally pop up.
: After more than 130 veiws by forum readers i would normally have
: expected a greater reaction to this new price guide. Come on
: people this forum is the right place to POLITELY express your
: Cheers - Darren
