The first event organised by Wetzlar Camera Auctions will take place on October 5 and the catalogue is now available.
Wetzlar Camera Auctions is a cooperative venture between Lars Netopil, one of the world’s leading experts on Leica history, and Jo Geier of Mint&Rare in Vienna.
Lars, who owns Lars Netopil Classic Cameras in Domplatz, Wetzlar — a must-visit attraction for any factory visitor — is a respected author on Leica history. He founded the Solms Camera Trade Fair 25 years ago and has had over 30 years’ experience of the marque, building up an unrivalled knowledge and lever of expertise.
Jo Geier has been involved in the camera auction world for over ten years and also brings to the venture an in-depth knowledge of other classic camera marques.
The first Wetzlar auction is much anticipated in the Leica collectors’ world and the venue, in the home town of Leica, is likely to add to its attraction.
