Aurel Bacs and René Beyer have known each other for decades. As a child, Mr Bacs would be captivated by the Beyer Chronometrie display window. Today, he runs some of the world’s leading watch auctions for Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo, which set a new world record with the sale of the Paul Newman Daytona.
Yet collecting wristwatches is a relatively new trend, and market requirements are constantly changing. The type of person interested in buying these timepieces also continues to vary. Dörte Herold is an expert in these things and makes it her mission to help Beyer customers find the pre-loved watch that is perfect for them.
Whether you are a vintage-watch enthusiast, a collector or just an out-and-out devotee of watchmaking, this is one conversation you will not want to miss.
