    I have no idea what these normally fetch - and I expect that's true of most of us. But for that money you could get some very nice watches.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Isn't this watch has it's own value because of it's rarity and vintage?

    Everything is worth what the market will pay for it at the time it is sold. Rarity and vintage have very little to do with the value of an item. If you have a one of a kind old item that nobody wants, it has no value. If you have a new item that has been produced a million times, but 50 million people desire it, the value can be immense. It is all about supply and demand.

    Right now, Casio game watches are pretty collectible because they are pretty scarce compared to the amount of people who want them. If the demand for these goes up in the future, that is more people are added to the list of people who desire these watches, value will increase. On the other hand, if less people want these and and amount available does not drop significantly, then value will plummet.

    But that's just the market side of the issue. The real moral to this story is if you like the item enough to collect it, and you don't want to make a profit off of it, pay what makes you happy and enjoy the item. If having that watch provides $200 of enjoyment, then it is absolutely worth it.
