And the seller of the 2915…
How to Screw a Sale:
The Auction House instigated a deposit requirement of 30% before allowing bidding on the most expensive speedmaster in the sale. This sale was going to be a challenge to market successfully as they only had it for a few weeks, and it felt rushed to market. I think the buyer got a bargain and a lovely (Nearly) original watch for considerably under what my dealer friends told me they offered the seller privately. While the seller was told to give it to an auction house, the Omega Forum regulars did say Phillips, or another of the big four, who would have taken their time to market directly to collectors. I should know, they do it to me. Bukowskis only contacted me to write an article, they did not offer to send Hi res photos, or ask if I wanted to bid, and most importantly, no one suggested that if I wanted to bid, I would have to send them 30% deposit.
Learn gentlemen. If your Big Brothers are not doing it, chances are its a bad idea.
