Some time ago during my visit at Simon, he
showed me his enormous collection of exposure meters. I was especially
interested in his collection of Gossen exposure meters and was allowed
to photograph a number of items of his collection.
Simon is probably an exposure meter collector with the largest private
collection in the world ranging from the firsts meters till the modern
types. His knowledge about the exposure meters is also great and he
wrote several articles about these items. In a Dutch photographic
collectors magazine 'PHT' he wrote a story about several type of meters.
Specials in his Gossen collection are undoubtedly the
transparent Sixtomat, the dark blue Sixtomat, the Sixtry - Trisix - Tower - LVsix
collection as well as his collection of pre WWII models. Simon also
helped me a lot with information, pictures and articles to make this
Gossen website possible. Many thanks for this Simon!
It is sure worthwhile to take a view at a part of his collection at:
