Crazy Prices for Vintage Rolex at Geneva Auction Weekend
Great Vintage Rolex @Geneva Auction Weekend go for crazy prices..but those that where not great, put together, prepared for auction, enhanced some even having fake parts, got slaughtered by the professional market. Off course we see that ‘trends’ continue with amazing results for the Stella dials or the absolutely stunning Single Red Seadweller that sold for $ 525.000,- to one of my best, young friend! 😉 New collectors coming to the market, like to buy mint condition. A NOS vintage Rolex will become in the near future a blue chip that will increase even more then we see now. As always, it was great hanging out with all my buddies, that fly in for the auction weekend from around the world. During the time we spend together analyzing the offered lots, you learn every day.
Honestly I was not surprised about the outcome of the results, it felt the market is getting 10-20% stronger on the ultra rare pieces, more private bids ( online & offline) and less dealers absorbing the offers. But last could also be that there where not many top lots to go for this time. We see that for Rolex, Christies announced after their Monday auction the special Rolex collection with some rare Star Stelline & Killy from Gordon Bethune for December 14th in New York. Here are some impressions I captured for your pleasure, hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
