Mr Aurel Bacs Recommends Six Vintage Watches
Mr Aurel Bacs, the man who brought the gavel down on the world’s most expensive wristwatch in 2017, talks us through six of his favourite timepieces going under the hammer next week in NYC. On 5 December, he will return to Phillips auction house alongside MR PORTER and our friends at The Rake in New York to present Styled: Timeless Collectors’ Watches And How To Wear Them, a first-of-its-kind auction that unites the worlds of collectors’ watches and men’s style.
As you’d expect from one of the watch market's most influential tastemakers, his selection hit all the right notes in terms of desirability, uniqueness and investment potential; perhaps more pertinently, though, the watches he chose were wearable across a wide range of scenarios. Which, ultimately, is what Styled is all about.
