This time I could completly focus on all the stunning watches
that where not only offered by the auction houses but also by
my fellow watch collectors/dealers that came to Geneva. When we
see the impressive results the top lots achieved, the economic
recession was not present at Des Bergues, Mandarin & Beau Rivage...

Those pieces that where genuinely original where as always most
sort after and reached their highest estimate or rocket skyhigh,
everything less got heavily punished, there's no room for bullsh*t
quality, put together or added enhanced look..even not when they
cover the front of a watch catalogue. The reputation of a auction
house is here in the hand of 1 single man, the guy responsible for
the offered lots. Again this time Mr Bacs showed us why Christie's
is leading the marked so impressivly. There where the others wheren't
complaining either, allthough some Rolex toplots for instance the Indian
emaille & Lafitte PN got resigned, except to 1 or 2 lots the real action
was again on monday......
