    3k ??

    in the past year we have seen this one for 9500 euros

    https://www.shucktheoyster.com/movado-m95-gilt-vintage-chronograph/

    this panda for 7k euros

    https://www.shucktheoyster.com/movado-panda-vintage-chronograph/

    and these 2 at phllips for huge $$ (20k+)

    https://www.phillips.com/detail/movado/CH080219/186?fromSearch=movado&searchPage=1

    obviously it depends on the specific watch and these are top top examples but i think its fair to say these are 50-100% up in the past 2 years

    LOL...yesterday wasn't meant to be literally yesterday. "yesterday" in collector speak is the last time I looked. But yes, they were under $3k not that long ago.

    and one other note on the M95's...I have been watching them for years, and although I haven't kept track lately I used to track serial numbers. Personally in the years I have been doing this I haven't found a single one outside of a very small group of 2500 serial numbers. and the inverse pandas are found in even a smaller range.

    To be fair, I don't think they have been sub-$5K in years, particularly for great examples. The top inverse panda and panda examples were commanding $6-8K at least 2-3 years ago (based on data points from a couple of friends that have owned / still own great examples). Like anything, people were willing to pay tomorrow's price today, which is what I did with my inverse example. That said, it's in almost perfect condition and is one of the favorite watches in my collection, so well worth it. I think the top range of M95's are still sleeping giants (particularly the even earlier Borgel cased Breguet dials), despite the growing appreciation for them.

    This was my first M95 though, which I bought back in 2016. I was trying out both Gallet and Movado based on recommendations from a friend, and while the Gallet was nice enough, as soon as I opened the package, I was blown away by the solid gold M95. The dial and case quality paired with the in-house M95 movement...it was insane value for what I paid (sub-$3K on eBay).

    2 years ago to be exact you could find a Panda for $3k if you looked hard enough...not easy as they just didn't make that many. But I know for a fact at least 2 sold for $3,000 in 2018. But the cat is out of the bag now...and considering how uncommon these are, even at current prices I agree there is no where to go but up.

    I think Bazamu is single handedly to blame for the recent strength in the market!

    But let's not dismiss Gallet just yet!

    Absolutely fantastic!! The dial is so well balanced on the two register ones.
