WHAT’S A WAKMANN?
As I scour the vast landscape of the Internet in search of vintage timepieces, I often feel like a paleontologist uprooting earth trying to discover the remains of a beast man has never seen. I’ve traveled around the globe and through 25 “O’s” on Google, deciphering murky pictures and misspelled descriptions with the hopes I may find an elusive “T-Rolex.” More often than not I find only the remains of extinct brands wiped off the earth during the quartz meteor.
At first glance, the scattered remains of brands like Wakmann, Nivada, Minerva, and Le Jour appear to be traps for new collectors or an estate dump. However, after digging into the history and looking below the patina surface, we find value beyond the quoted retail in today’s market.
