How do you make a timed auction?

At NFTz it's possible to make a timed NFT auction for NFTs with 1 copy/serial. You can set the length of the auction and when the time is finished the following can happen:

a. The highest bidder wins when there are multiple bidders. If there is only 1 bidder, this person will win. If multiple bidders have the same highest bid amount then the first bidder will win.

b. Somebody pays the full amount by using the buy function. This person will win the auction directly.

c. If there are no bidders the timed auction ends. The auction continues as an ordinary auction and it's possible to make bids. It's possible to start another timed auction.
