Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.


Please see Alex article below from Monday 14 Sept. below!

To my astonishment lot 228 ref. 4877 Estimate: 3,000 USD - 5,000 USD was sold at 18.000 USD hammer incl.,
a not unusual Vacher&Constantin model, beautiful as most of them are, but I can't ever understand
these 'idolize' prices. 
That's not a true V&C collector, it's Marlon freakDoc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.
Anyhow it's where the normal price should be for such a beautiful watch, rather a fat actor had it or notDoc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

Next surprise is a give away price 15.600 USD hammer incl. (!). for Lot 231 Ref 4178,
with an Estimate 15,000 USD - 25,000 USD and rember + hammer...
If the watch is in the shape it looks, it's just to congratule the winner Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.
OTH Antiquorum has always been to overdoing in photoshops.....something many of us buyers know!Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

I prefer Sotheby's, Christie's, Dr Crott and Bonhams, which all print plain photos,
even though sometimes I hate those pics with several watches on one pic..

Third surprise for me was that Malte has been at last accepted as a 'Classic V&C'.
I never believed that Lot 308 Ref 30066R: rose gold Malte Tourbillon. Estimate: 60,000 USD - 90,000 USD,
should reach the estimate...but it surely did at 90.000 USD incl. hammer! Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

These results speak the language that I'm trying over and over to use.

Vacheron&Constantin will be a winner very, very soon.

Especially if they accept their real name Vacheron&Constantin Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

Genearlly all Auction houses, except DR Crott, makes a big misstake,
not showing the movements on the net or in their catalogues.

All of you doesn't own an appartment in Geneva, NY, Hong Kong, London etc,
as I do.
No that was just a joke Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

Nice wekend to all you my dear aficionados Doc's comments on the auction results from Antiquorum in NY.

Marlon Brando was not always fat...

and certainly not in 1954! He may not be everyone's favourite but there is no question that he was an extraordinary performer (stage and film). BTW I did pick up a little something but not Vacheron Joseph
Nio his wasn't always fat, and not I either,

Antiquorum seem to be focusing now on watches having belonged to

celebrities. The price of the 4178 is a bargain but probably the watch was not in good condition and I am extremely surprised by the price of the Malte Tourbillon which went for a rather high price for a watch still on catalogue!

As written before, there are "collectors" and collectors I never would believe these things to happen in Geneva Doc

Of course, you are and I' also because it's a confirm of the Malte design at last is accepted as a clssaic V&C Doc
You got that right, Mats!

I actually never thought of the tonneau shape as a classic VC pattern... Come to think of it, 1912 was the big year for the tonneau VCs... And Frank Muller whose watches are basically associated with the shape wasn't even born yet
I'm so gald Radoslaw,

that you, the fast learner you are, have gone deeper and deeper into the history of V&C! That's what counts, not the aquisition but the search, the hunt for a vintage, watches, sculptuers, other art or perhaps 1st editions of WSC! I once was an avid hunter and 100s of times I was actually hunting in the woods, but nowadays I perfer hunt with this instead of this Even my old hunting partner seems to have lost his interest, now my two Labaradors are pleased with running after a deer 100 meters or so.. or a squirrel I once read a book about dogs by Konrad Lorenz, where he described that dogs at their own territory, makes a 'party truce' with wild animals!  Amazing, but I have seen so many times Doc
Ain't life sweet, Doc?

these kind of moments are worth living forI can only say that I envy you big time. One day will come and I also will enjoy peaceful surroundings and the pace of everyday life will slow down considerably...

For now these are the most precious moments I cherish...
