    The watch shop that I walked into two weeks ago is ~2 weeks in queue on repair/maintenance jobs.

    I have given my watchmaker enough $ over the years to both put his kids through school as well as start his own watchmaking classes..........

    I predict watch prices will go up, while numbers sold will go down they will become truly luxury only goods such as rings and bracelets.

    Yup, mine as well. At least she is far younger than I. That means I have a watchmaker for the rest of my life, unless she moves.
