    Thanks John and Ariel for the website mention. Glad the Minus4Plus6.com website helped the discussion. The price evolution sheet I started in at the late 2000’s using numbers that a Rolex dealer used to show how Rolex prices (and by inference, value) increased every year. I have added to the chart each time there is a price increase.

    Thanks for adding Direct Download link to the latest podcast – yay!

    But what about the last 1/2 dozen or so that are still missing it? Looking forward to catching up on those episodes when the link is added.

    Since Swiss watches are not made in the US, it doesn’t make sense to use the US CPI to convert the price of a watch then to compare with it now. Rather, you should figure out the exchange rate between the Swiss Franc and the US Dollar then and now in addition to the Swiss CPI to take a guess at whether watch prices, for whatever reason, including because they can or because of a changing market willing to pay more for luxury watches, are has bloated or not.
