    Photos - Christie's OMEGA SPEEDMASTER 50 TOUR - Galleria Omega Boutique Houston, TX USA

    Fellow WUSers,

    I was able to check out the Christie's OMEGA SPEEDMASTER 50 TOUR at the Omega Boutique in the Galleria. I took a few photos of what was being exhibited. The gentleman from Christie's managing the showing, Brandon Frazin was great to chat with, very knowledgeable. Awesome little visit! Njoy :D

    Of course we are all looking forward to seeing just what Christies have up their sleeves with this auction, in terms of over-exited one time buyers.

    That is existing wealthy customers from other departments, who will no doubt not mind paying over the odds for a one off. Lets see, you never know. I dont know about anyone else, but I am an eternal optimist at auctions, always thinking I have a chance...

    Out of 50 lots, only 21 are pre 1978.

    There are some very ordinary ones, and I wonder how these will fair. For example the last 12 lots, these are all examples of references that I have seen sold (most on on ebay ) in the last 12 months, and easily replaced.

    In addition the first two lots are, er, not watches. I suppose "Christies 48" sale doesn't sound as good...

    Its an exiting time. It will be interesting to see what things sell for, especially the replaceable lots.

    The 2915's will probably skyrocket, my guess is $300k between them might not buy them.

    Dont forget the 25% premium

    Here is a list of the pre 78's with estimates:
