The company for watch auctions
For more than 40 years the name Auktionen Dr.
Crott has stood for competence in timepieces.
Founded 1975 in Aachen by the expert and collector
Dr. Helmut Crott, the auction house rapidly
established an international reputation as a
reliable partner for watch and clock enthusiasts.
After many years of dedication to the business,
Dr. Crott retired in 1993 and passed his successful
and distinguished auction house on to Stefan
Muser. To this day the company carries the
name Dr. Crott, with whom we share a deep and
trusting relationship and who still holds an intense
interest in the development of the auction house.
Auktionen Dr. Crott moved to Mannheim (near
Frankfurt/Main) in 1994, where the excellent
infrastructure makes for easy access for the ever
increasing international customer base.
