Vintage Kaplans Clock

Last week, you could read about the great we the big clock auctions in Geneva here on Manolo and today we thought we highlight Sweden’s if not Scandinavia’s leading auction house in the area, namely the Kaplans who on Saturday are the recognized important watches. This has become a regular feature here at Manolo and we sat down with Kaplan’s Watch expert Garry W hagen to look a little closer at the auction.

Kaplans Clock quality is known as the country’s largest premium auction. Twice a year, brings together the best experts from Kaplan in the market, often with a focus on vintage and collectible watches and on Saturday the 16th of may, it is time for this spring’s auction in company premises at biblioteksgatan in Stockholm.

In previous years, the major drawcards especially been “Paul Newman-Daytonas”. In three Qualities in a row they sold some of the market’s most sought-after versions and the last hit man by far Swedish record when a Rolex Daytona Paul Newman “RCO” was sold for over 5 000 000 kr (incl. VAT). commissions.

Although these tend to take the largest space of the auction is the Kaplans maybe strongest on the bells of the slightly lower price class. It is each year an impressive range of odd and unusual collectible watches in NOS (New Old Stock) which is often the clock collector’s wet dream. It can be anything from completely unspoilt kostymklockor from Omega a few thousand to antique sports watches from the 70 ‘s in perfect condition.

We had the opportunity to look at some of the clocks in the upcoming auction and to refer some questions to the Garry W hagen, clock expert at Kaplans Auktioner.

What makes Kaplan to Sweden’s or t on Scandinavia’s leading auction houses when it comes to watches?

Above all, it is because we work as Bell appraiser has a passion for watches and vintage watches in particular. We have long-term sought and paid attention to fun and interesting watches to our clock qualities, we did not compromise on quality and rather had fewer watches at auction than to fill them out with decent items. Since we have successfully through our network reached out both nationally and internationally to share about the watches we have received. This has created both better returns and better bidding through the years.

If you sat with shovel in hand, what would you bid on?

I love the design and the “funky” look of the Zenith Watch with the auction number 53, a watch that is both highly unusual and with its pristine condition is completely unique.

Garry w Hagen’s personal favorite from the spring Clock quality. A Zenith in more or less the same condition as when it left the factory for almost 50 years ago. Here at embudoexpress you can get more different models and styles.

In previous years, the old Rolex Paul Newman-models “has been the most in focus. Which watch do you think will be the auction’s bad boy this time?

This auction is a bit wider but no million clock and the slightly more expensive watches are all more modern so I think pure percentage terms during the auction will be $100,000 watches rockets. I hope to our perpetual calendar from Patek Philippe Nr. 144 should prove to be popular among the customers who are looking for a more modern clock. It will also be interesting to follow Rolex # 122, a wonderful clock with stunning dial but then the article is dykringen is it priced at a very attractive level. Although it is not entirely complete, I think it can be a desirable object, especially for those who happen to have a originallring lying in the drawer.

Patek Philippe’s Perpetual Calendar REF. 5140 in white gold from 2008. One of the watches that summarizes Patek who manufacturers the best. (Even the top picture).

Rolex Submariner REF. 5513 “gilt” from 1964. A clock in complete condition rarely cost under 100 000 SEK Watchcase and plexiglass has seen a lot of use but is just like painting in fine original condition.

The Watch has left its original bevels along the case bandhorn which shows provide good reason to believe that it is very sparingly polished over the years.

Do you have any advice for those who are planning to bid for the first time.

Do your homework properly, read the full listing, check the clock carefully and form your own opinion before the auction. Please take the help of an expert if you need. Question rather one time too much than too little and double check exactly which terms and conditions that apply. Keep in mind that there is a Commission on the total and customize it to suit your budget. Since always the old classic hint to determine before the auction how high the bidding you should go. It’s incredibly easy to get carried away.

There are a few gems in the lower price range you’d like to highlight?

# 126 is an incredibly charming Universal Genève which of their age is unusually large, 38 mm may not sound so great but it was a huge clock in the 1940 ‘s, these watches are known as “Oversized”. You need a watch to his desk so I would recommend to take another at Tiffany & co. # 185, funny and stylish asymmetrical shape and a really odd clock.

Exciting table clock from the venerable Tiffany & Co.

We watched ourselves on the range and got caught a little extraför a couple of watches.

#1-Vacheron Constantin REF. 4072 “Base 1000”

Chronograph from Vacheron Constantin in tvåtonsutförande with an absolutely incredible condition for 70 years.

#31-Omega Speedmaster REF. 2998-4 “Lollipop”

Speedmastern is mainly associated with space and professionalmodellerna from the 70 ‘s onwards. Our favorite, though, is the slightly older versions with straight bandhorn and a little less size. This in a used but honest condition.

#100-Lemania Tg 195 “Tre Kronor”

Lemania “TG 195” special ordered by the Swedish defense and, with its militärprovinens and the wonderful aged Brown watch face the potential to stick away in price.

The back is engraved with the three crowns.

 

#130-Richard Mille REF. RM005

Richard Mille is another exciting and more modern accents in quality. A manufacturer in the premium segment with a very own design philosophy and watches that are often inspired by technology in racing.

#141-Audemars Piguet Royal Oak REF. 5402st “Jumbo”

AP’s top clock ever is in our view, the original version of Royal Oak from the 70 ‘s. A so-called C-series recently back from factory service.

This along with the other Gerald Genta-classics IWC Ingenieur SL and Universal Polerouter.
