Technology Auction Winds up on a High Note Specialty Auction at Auction Team Breker, Cologne October 30 – 31, 2020
FROM SPY CAMERAS to calculators and a cash register built for an international exhibition, Auction Team Breker’s two-day sale offered tech aficionados a chance to stock up the collector’s cabinet.
The novel coronavirus has changed the dynamic of auctions, turning busy salerooms into virtual experiences and increasing the allure of pocket-sized items that can be viewed on a screen and purchased with the click of a mouse. Gone are the sociable viewing days, the familiar faces and the friendly rivalry of the back row; when the gavel falls today, it falls in an empty room.
Auction Team Breker has been fortunate in being able to adapt to the new way of doing business.
