Re: Geneva Results -- What did you see?


I obviously am a huge fan of these watches. Yours was a nice example. I don't want to say that I know what these are worth. They are a genuine rarity and the fact that Tony Hulman (owner of the Motor Speedway) gave them out as presents to his best friends and track supporters makes them very special to me. I was surprised years ago when they started to go for around $10-12,000. I sold a brand new one in its box with tags for just under $10,000 years ago and was happy to get it....although I would certainly like to have it back now. Rare watches like this are always hard to value.

Anyway, cheers and congratulations to you and Paul. I wish I could have been there to see this once in a lifetime collection in person. I have learned so much from what you and Paul have written over the years and from the detailed and beautiful photos you have posted. As a collector I know it must be a bittersweet thing to have seen these watches go they say...we can't take them with us. I hope I can let my collection go before they have to bury me with it.
