Today was a fun day for a collector of vintage timepieces.  A once a lifetime opportunity to get the hands on some of the rarest and historically most interesting timepieces made by German manufacturers like Hanhart, Glashütte, and Tutima as well as Moskau Uhrenfabrik, a Russian watchmaker.  The auction at Van Ham had over 60 rare pieces from the period of 1939 until the 1970s.  It even included a Hanhart without signature which is a unique piece according to a close friend who is a recognized expert for these watches.

The most important part of the auction took about a full hour.  A lot of phone and online bidders from the US and other countries were contributing their bids.  The auction room was actually quite empty, only 6 to 7 people were bidding in the room, and I was one of them.

I shot photos of every single watch pretty much, but for instance, I am sharing just a few photos as I need to move them from my cellphone to my laptop.  So expect more photos in the next day or two.  Meanwhile, enjoy these impressions.
