I routinely check the auction site for both interesting pieces and to track trends. This includes a/c clocks and tools as well as pocket watches. Across the board, the offerings seem to have dropped a lot. This is especially true for hunting cases and 16 s Hamilton hunters. And things that do show up seem to go for 2X what they did last year. Whether it is a Hamilton 18s or a 19th cent. 16 s Hampden. OTOH, I have been able to buy a 993 movt for a case I had and my Billings. But I also had to pay what I consider a lot of money for 18s box hinge GF cases. And GF hunting cases are well over $100. While my specific interest is the technical analysis of movements, I do case the movt's appropriately. So the question is: without NAWCC shows, (which I thought would increase the auction site), where is everything going? Jones and Horan? Is the market turning because of income concerns? I would have thought if this was the case there would be an increase in selling. It is a puzzle. Stay healthy.
