Amazing auction! Congratulations to the winners!
Very strong result! I hope this is going to be readable....

Some pre-auction perspective from Jeff Stein:
Download the catalogue from here:
I watched most of it live; I missed the first few lots (so the 1153N that I wanted to follow - that went for a strong price). I was surprised the 1153S (lot 12) didn't get more interest...
26 lots sold for more than the high estimate and just 2 for less than the low. Here is a cleaned up copy of the result
First reaction is that it was a good set of results, without being a set of results that redefined the market- but maybe that's too high a threshold to set.
A few surprises (e.g. 1153N Carrera) and the 70s Autavia results were flat-ish.
Overall, I'm sure the guys are happy
Interesting commentary. I watched the auction live and was also surprised the Chronomatic Autavia didn't sell for a bit more. That would have been my choice. But spot on about the GMT Autavia though - super condition watch. Now where's my lottery ticket?
They say · If you love something, let it go. If it returns, it's yours forever.
With that in mind take a look at this!
Everyone loves a happy ending!
