already realized in the nineteenth century: “You must

be aware of the fact that there is only one place

where the value of the paintings is recognized, and

that place is the auction hall”.

much easier than anywhere else – here is where

supply and demand truly meet.

And a competent and experienced auctioneer

plays a decisive role in the achievement of the

highest prices by encouraging and controlling

the dynamics of the bidding.

Auktionen Dr. H. Crott attracted a great deal of

attention in this respect during its 69th auction in

November 2004, where a rare Patek Philippe steel

a German record for a wristwatch at auction that

auctioneer Stefan Muser still holds to this day!

The determination of the limits is done during the

run-up to the auction by our competent and

experienced team under the guidance of Stefan Muser;

the exact expertise of the objects in combination with

the analysis of the market situation ensures on the

one hand that none of the watches and clocks are

sold under value, and on the other also offers accurate

guidelines to the collectors wanting to purchase.
