Re: Watches of Knightsbridge Auction, Sat July 20

Seems like very poor results at WoK for Heuer but also for Omega and others. . .so many passed lots

I think only the very best all-original examples are safe right now. The market for middle of the road examples of nearly every brand is quite poor

: Here is our page for the auction being held by Watches of
: Knightsbridge, this Saturday, July 20 --

: There are 12 Heuers included in the sale, including the ones shown
: below.

: The Siffert has a 141xxx serial number and ridged hands, suggesting
: an early model, but the hands are for a later model.

: The early Autavia looks interesting . . . we are definitely seeing
: a lot of the thin lume hands lately.

: And what about that Rotary 45 Dato?? We don't see many Poor Man's
: chronographs in the 1960s Carrera cases. This should be
: interesting.

: Pet peeve -- Why doesn't Watches of Knightsbridge include full
: serial numbers in its catalogs? The other major auction houses
: now include the serial numbers.
