    A lot of the watches have shown very strong prices, vintage and contemporary. The George Daniels double sided wristwatch from 1992 (Lot 27) went for more than CHF 4,000,000.

    Wow, and I have some solid gold vintage Seikos that make that thing look pedestrian by comparison

    The folks in Marketing are doing cartwheels right now. Vintage numbers like this for a brand are a very good omen.

    That seems like an insane price, even if you like Seikos (I do).

    I mean if 20k is lunch money to someone I don't think discipline in valuation is the top priority... I swear some of these it feels like a case of buyer wants watch, and it just happens to be there, and they can't be bothered to deal hunt

    Rightfully said! I have been to a few auction previews where regular clients who shell out 7 figures on art but have no idea of watches being bought to the watch booth. These watches don't even cost a tenth of even the commission on one of those so they wont blink an eye.

    To my knowledge the J14070 is gold filled, not gold plated. So a bit more gold involved than described. Still, that price should easily get you a full set J14070 and you’d probably have more than half left over.

    Not common to find a 3180 with full kit. But I’m surprised as this isn’t even a carved dial. The early carved have started to touch 10k on the market.
