The foundation of the watch manufactory which is based in Geneve today took place in 1839. The Polish nobleman Antoine Graf de Patek and his partner Jean-Adrien Philippe developed a novelty in the world of watches: The winding crown made it easier to wind up a watch or set its time. Watches by Patek Philippe are still eye-catchers nowadays, optically as well as technically.
You can find detailed information about Patek Philippe at Wikipedia.

Originally founded as Wilsdorf and Davis by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905, the company registered Rolex as the brand name of its watches in 1908 and became Rolex Watch Co. Ltd. in 1915.
The brand Rolex got registered in 1908 and received its first award only five years later. The special thing at that time was that Rolex had succeeded in bringing the high precision watch movements (which were usually only used in pocket watches) to a smaller size so they could be worn on the wrist.

Giovanni Panerai (1825–1897) founded Officine Panerai in Florence, Italy in 1860. Panerai watches, designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, played a role in assisting the frogmen of the Decima Flottiglia MAS in their operations during World War II. Notable products include the Luminor and Radiomir wristwatches. Radiomir, the name for the radium-based luminous mixture is derived from “radio mire”, which is Italian for “radium sights”. Panerai dials were rendered luminous with Radiomir, a highly radioactive radium-based self-luminous compound, and later in around 1965, with Luminor, a harmless compound activated by tritium.

Founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848, the company formally operated as La Generale Watch Co. until incorporating the name Omega in 1903, becoming Louis Brandt et Frère – Omega Watch & Co. In 1982, the company officially changed its name to Omega SA. Britain’s Royal Flying Corps chose Omega watches in 1917 as its official timekeepers for its combat units, as did the U.S. Army in 1918. Omega watches were the choice of NASA and the first watch on the Moon in 1969. In addition James Bond has worn it in films since 1995.

Buying pre-owned watches online – at matter of trust
In contrast to other online stores, you will not find a shopping cart in the classic sense on my site, instead I prefer to have a personal relationship with my customers. You may use the contact form on each article page to get in touch with me. The watch details are automatically added to the form but you can always add your own text. Also add questions you might have – we’ll be happy to answer them.
