    Guess it's supply and demand.

    Used to be no one wanted Streamlines.

    Purests considered them ladies watches.

    Now they started bringing fair money.

    Go figure.

    The prices were so cheap back then. I want a time machine and go back with 1000 dollars and buy up scores of solid gold watches and bring them back to now!

    Sadly, you would not get as many watches as you thought. $25 in 1924 money is about $350 in 2017 money. That $25 solid gold Elgin would have cost as much as a week's(if you were lucky) wages

    It is like how in the 1950's and 1960's gas was less then 60 cents, however that 60 cents in 1967 money is over $4 in 2017 money, Most folks could not fill up their tank up to full. you are better off with the gas prices today.
