    Most overpriced watch?

    Panerai & Rolex always spring to mind, but the recent thread about the Rufus Gerard was an eye opener ie: $8800 for something IMHO appears worth no more than $500 (Seiko mvt)....any other examples?

    It's got to be the Patek Philippe which sold recently for USD 6.800.000,00!

    something isnt overpriced if its selling at a correct market price, balancing supply and demand.. i.e. rolex, as much as it may be not woth the sum of its parts, isnt overpriced... I dont see rolex outlet stores.. If you want to know which watches are overpriced, go look at the movada outlets.. had ladies watches in their with white gold with $7000 stickers.. and the associates telling me they have rolex movements.

    I'd say that was the most under-priced watch on the market. The new/used premium is 40-50% - in other words, the market values the watch at 40-50% more than the retail network. Everyone hates it, but that's the economic logic...
