There is a renewed interest in watches and pocket watches (I wonder how many watch courses Bob sells as opposed to clock courses), I think more and more people are looking at watch repair as a retirement hobby. This helps to push up demand and as well as complete watches fetching good prices I have noticed spares/repair movements going up in price as people are looking to replace parts that can no longer be purchased. This also means that watches which could have been repaired are now becoming donor movements and again this increases the scarcity of certain watches. Movements that are perfectly good are also being used for parts as cases are being melted for their gold. It is a sad state of affairs but prices will continue to rise so get the bargains while you can!
