Antoine de Macedo, owner of two watch boutiques in Paris.
Pre-owned watches, Antoine de Macedo’s way

Last year Richemont announced its acquisition of Watchfinder.com, sealing its entry into the pre-owned market. More recently, the multi-brand Bucherer store in Geneva opened a fourth-floor Gallery dedicated to the buying and selling of vintage watches. And Antoine de Macedo in Paris? He has been buying, selling and servicing high-end pre-owned watches for 33 years.

The autumn sales in Geneva: Antiquorum

Always first off the (auctioneer's) block, Antiquorum opened the season with a sale of 613 lots on Sunday November 11th.

The sale realised a total CHF 8.8 million with 494 lots sold and 19% unsold.
