It's a matter of taste

In 1971 I looked at Rolex watches at Zurich airport. I wanted to buy a Daytona Chronograph and the price was $172. Today that same watch, in mint condition, sells for around $100,000 on eBay.

There are certain Leicas which command high prices. But some of the "collectable" ones sell for less than the equivalent non-collectable. It's important to remember what the archeologists say: "What is common becomes rare, and what is rare becomes common." With the passage of time everyday items fade away. The treasured valuables are preserved.
