Talking to Aurel Bacs, the charismatic and successful auctioneer of Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo
Yesterday in Geneva I had the enormous pleasure to talk to Aurel Bacs.
He will, starting tomorrow Saturday, auction during ‘The Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: SIX’inter alia ‘The Crosthwaite & Gavin Collection consisting of exceptional Heuer Chronographs from the Jack Heuer Era’.
But my conversation with Aurel Bacs is split in two parts:
First we talked about the tremendous success Aurel had as an auctioneer with the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona that belonged to Paul Newman. The watch was auctioned a couple of days ago in New York for $17,752,500 / CHF 17,709,894 / € 15,228,095.
I asked Aurel what what was going on in his head at the moment when he auctioned this stunning chronograph and when the hammer went down.
Then we talked about other brands and their vintage watches that will probably perform well in one of the next Phillips auctions. You will hear some interesting names and be able to discover some unexpected type of watches.
In the second part of our conversation we talked about the Heuer Parade.
This is the upcoming auction of the ‘The Crosthwaite & Gavin Collection consisting of exceptional Heuer Chronographs from the Jack Heuer Era’. There are some really amazing watches among the ones that will come under the hammer.
You will also be able to discover all the Heuer vintage-chronographs from The Crosthwaite & Gavin Collection and to find the appropriate information each watch. I have uploaded pictures of all the watches …
I invite you to take some time and listen to our interesting conversation and to discover the Heuer vintage-chronographs. If you are into vintage watches it is even a must!
