    Have a look at the Speedmaster 101 blog for a more in depth analysis of the sale. I think you will find an excellent starting point to consider.

    Thx Joe

    Being honest, I did not analyze the condition of the watches that accurate. So instead of a noticeable drop in prices it's more like Speedmaster 101 is stating at his price chart "Over prepared, or poorly prepared watches are not selling."

    :thumbsup:

    I just had a look at Speedmaster101's post auction assessment, and I can hardly say I'm surprised they didn't sell, just a bunch of ugly watches.

    I personally would much rather have a later reference in great condition instead of one of these ratty, dog eared looking earlier examples.
