Collecting watches is a hobby that can drive us mad. It may start as a hobby, but for many, the call of collecting takes over and one-time enthusiasts become all-out obsessives! In this vibrant panel discussion, OMBAS attendees can hear from a panel featuring a celebrated dealer and an auctioneer, moderated by a watch journalist – all three of them collectors in their own right, too – about the watches they traveled to find in 2023, times it worked out and the times it didn’t, the battle of auctions versus private dealers, what happens when they’re fighting for the same watch or client, and more.
Panelists: Eric Wind, Wind Vintage and Jonathan Burford, Senior Vice President, Senior Specialist, Watches, Sotheby’s
Moderated by Anthony Traina, Hodinkee
