Of course, no one is forced to part with the sweethearts they brought with them at “Bares for Rares”. In the end, the price has to be right for both parties, but that’s not always the case. Student Fabio Kronfeld even turned down a very lucrative offer. But what happened?

Even the expertise did not go as desired for the Berliner. He imagined a sum of 4,000 euros for his uncle’s heirloom, but the valuation of the pocket watch was more modest with a maximum of 3,000 euros. This was due to the relatively poor condition of the rarity. However, Fabio Kronfeld still wanted to see the inside of the dealership.

In the dealer room, things went like clockwork for Fabio Kronfeld at first. Both Fabian Kahl and Wolfgang Pauritsch showed interest in the watch, after all it comes from the 18th century and is therefore a real antique. Wolfgang Pauritsch’s highest bid was 2,000 euros, which was only half of the seller’s desired price, but still two thirds of the expertise.
