"The average price of a Rolex Daytona has increased 34% over the past year to reach nearly $48,000."

 

$48K!!!

It sure would be nice if I had kept mine...

 

A new steel white dial Zenith Daytona in December 1992 from a rlx AD was $3685 out the door (list + shp).  The next three (one white, two black) from October 1996 to May 1998 were $5120 (list + shp) otd. 

A new 16610 in August 1994 was $2065 otd...discounted a few $$.  They were not very hot back then.

A new white dial Explorer II in September 1994 was $1865 otd...discounted a few $$.  They were dead in the water around here back then.

A new leftover AK was $990 otd.

All included shipping out of state to dodge sales tax.

I paid $3515 in November 1999 to a watch trader for a like new tutone Zenith Daytona w/bp.

All gone...  :cry:

"Today's outrageous asking price for a Rolex <fill-in-the-blank> will seem like a bargain a year from now."

 

I'll be ready if these ever go up in value...and the box is five rows across,  Ha!

 ...and if they quit runnin' I'll 'patch 'em up (the 16oz hammer is out of sight).

Can't remember what that is on the 'butcher block'.

I do not know how long you have had the parts in that case, but gen Rolex parts have been going pretty steadily up since I began collecting. If you have not already done so, it might be time to check current values. ;)

"Are those holding 1030 movements? If so I get the first two."

 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but they are all reeplikkas.  I have a similar box of tutones and another box of SS models...all DJ.  I need to dig them out and take pics so you all will not think I'm kidding.

Also a box or two of swiss ETA stuff, and a few boxes of assorted this and that.  Almost all of it was taken in on payments on debts and it has been stacked up for years. 

 

I still have three watches with cal 1030 left...a 1956 tutone 6605 with swiss '56 marked tt bracelet, a 1959 steel 6605 with a like new swiss jubilee (probably 1970s), and an early 1960s gold top 6634 on a strap. 

The tutone has a refinished dial and pretty good case and bracelet, the steel 6605 and gold top 6605 both are in very good condition.  I sent the tutone bracelet to Michael Young about 10 years back and he tightened it up a little.

I never wear any of them (afraid one might throw a rod) and I'll try to dig them out someday and post a picture or two. 

My Empire of Dirt.  

 

Edit  10-30-21

The two pics I had on here went south so I'll post some others later...they are buried in storage and not easy to dig out.
