 Precious metals saw a decline of -0.98% in June, though the category still shows an impressive year-to-date gain of 8.1%. The watch category delivered mixed results, with more trades on the secondary market and increased demand for niche pieces like the De Bethune DB25VTIS3. However, widely available references such as the Rolex Sea-Dweller continued to lose value at -1.5%.
