What’s It Worth? Heuer Autavia Sold on Pawn Stars

Date: March 11th, 2014

Pawn Stars is an American “reality” television show that presents events occurring at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Episodes typically feature customers coming into the shop with a rare or collectible item (or perhaps something entirely worthless), and negotiating with the shops owners / employees to sell or pawn the item. Sometimes, a customer seeks to sell a valuable item, and is pleasantly surprised to discover its real value. In other instances, the customer believes that he has an item of great value, and is disappointed when the owner suggests that the item is common or even a counterfeit.

In the February 20, 2014 episode of Pawn Stars, a customer (“Randy”) sought to sell his vintage Heuer Autavia chronograph and negotiated the transaction with Rick. Randy indicated that his father had purchased the watch when it was new, around 1970, and that the watch had been in a drawer for the past 25 years, being worn infrequently.
