 |  October 6th, 2016

It’s auction season again and we couldn’t be happier. There are so many great timepieces up on the block and they are commanding high prices that we believe collectors are willing to spend.

But, fear not. If you can’t get your hands on one of those limited edition pieces — you have a new chance to own a one-of-a-kind rendition. On December…
