This aggressive second bid wiped out all of the qualified bidders in the room and it was now a battle of the phone bidders. Not a single paddle was raised. Not one.
That made me chuckle, picturing the bidders with their special white paddles giddy over their chance to bid on and maybe even win the watch. And then in one fell swoop, they were out. Ha.
I didn't know watches had such big money behind them.
