How Much is the Celebrity Factor Worth - A Look Back

How Much is the Celebrity Factor Worth - A Look Back

Postby Racer-X » September 15th 2018, 4:35pm

"The power of ‘celebrity’ is not a new concept. As far back as the ancient pharaohs, celebrities have been put on a pedestal (sometimes literally) and we’ve obsessed into the lives of the powerful, the wealthy and the beautiful. These days, technology puts the beautiful people at our fingertips, and this all-access, always-on, microscope into famous lives continues to fuel the celebrity fire. And that desire for fame through association is at its strongest when it comes to celebrity-owned objects....we thought it would be fitting to look at other famous watches that have gone under the hammer, just to see how much of a difference a famous provenance makes.

Note, prices are all estimates based on available RRPs at the time of manufacture. All prices are in USD for comparative purposes. Currency fluctuations are based on the ‘real’ value of the USD rate at the time of writing, though actuals may vary."

Watches worn by "celebrities" who really didn't give a fuck about what watches they were wearing aren't worth shit to me.
