      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......
