The most important thing for me though is, I badly hope I'll never receive too HIGH of an offer for my 'Boccadasse' (people with homes/castles in that neighborhood of course periodically show interest)....since no matter how crazy an offer is, that will NEVER get sold for as long as I'm around! ;-))
In general, a collector who's always current on the market value of their watches sounds more like an investor than a real collector to me....to each their own, but that'd definitely spoil much of the beauty of this hobby for me, so it's not gonna happen!

I was about to say this has lessened since I got a new car... but then I realized my 'new' Volkswagen is coming on 5 years old. Not so new after all!

Watchrecon This gives some indication of market value and what watches have recently sold for. Yes, I have a rough estimate for what my very humble collection is worth
