Which ones in looked awful Jeff? From what I could see plenty lots were unsold due to crazy reserves, the 1163 ridged marker was a good result although the white dial 1163 orange accents looked low. From what I have seen and read recently 1970s Autavia are bad news generally and have fallen in value more than most. I think that makes sense in that automatic watches are not really where the market is. Maybe some sellers are a little bit behind the curve on that though?
I haven't studied the results in detail, but at a quick glance,
: they look absolutely awful . . . many unsold lots; some low
: prices; only a handful that performed well.
: I am told that there were approximately 12 bidders in the room. I
: have heard several reports to the effect that the online bidding
: system was a complete disaster. And the end of June gets into
: the holiday season, for many families. So these results should
: not be surprising.
: Let's take a break and hope for better results in the Fall.
