price guide?... Price Guide?... PRICE GUIDE??? (picture Dad in Breaking Away having nervous breakdown and repeating "REFUND?!).
I was heavily into collecting vintage watches years ago (over it finally... whew!... thanks for asking) and remember the watch price guides. The insiders told me they were all written by big time collectors. The methodology was to set the prices in the book high for the watches that the collector/price guide author had a lot of in their own collection, and price low in the book the watches that the collector/price guide author was looking for for his own collection.
GET IT?! (yeah, i thought you would)
