On The Block: Video From Our Webinar With Mr. Aurel Bacs Of Phillips Watches
Yesterday, our own Cara Barrett joined watch sell off director and H10 alum Aurel Bacs for a live Zoom online course covering probably the most energizing parts at the upcoming Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: XI. We’ve felt free to save the video from the virtual occasion with the goal that you can look at it here today.
Most individuals know Bacs best from his exhibitions on the Phillips closeout platform, where he sold the Paul Newman Paul Newman Daytona and the steel 1518 , to name two record-setting wristwatches.

This weekend’s Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: XI has some veritable substantial hitters of its own, including pieces claimed by another H10 alum, Jean-Claude Biver , which you may very well review from his appearance on Talking Watches. Cara and Aurel stroll through these and a few other of the closeout’s features, among them not one but rather two Explorer-dial Submariners. One is a ref. 6200 with a lovely mind blowing story behind it. You may recall when an illustration of this chalice Sub showed up on Talking Watches 2 with John Mayer.
If you couldn’t join the online course live, we think you’ll truly appreciate the video – bunches of superb experiences into watch gathering, captivating responses to inquiries from perusers (remembering hints for spotting counterfeit tropical dials), and a huge load of energy for watches and watchmaking from the guests.
The Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: X1 will occur at 2 PM CET (8 AM New York Time) June 27 and 28. For more data and to follow the bartering, visit Phillips.
