THE BEAUTY OF TIME
“The Beauty of Time” is a website and a Forum for the art of Time and “haute horlogerie”, the study and science of time, watches and horology. We specialize in the preservation, understanding and advancement of fine, vintage watches and watchmaking. Every vintage watch connects your past to your present and to the future.
A vintage watch can tell stories of past generations and prepare the path from now to the next generations. If the watch is well preserved, revived, reconstructed and functional it can fulfill this path and bring joy into your daily life.
Our goal is to complete the reconstruction and functionality of the watch that suits you and your story. Let's travel together.
This website was created to help you find and connect to a vintage time piece that represents your story or connects your interest into the past, present and future. A vintage watch with [functioning] mechanical movement is exactly that, a piece that connects the past to the present and can be passed down for generations. Set the roots for your present by connecting to the past with a functional, mechanical vintage watch that can be preserved to outlast this generation into the next and represent the wisdom of past generations.
Nothing symbolizes time, the passage of time and the transiency of life better than a vintage watch. Time travel? yes, a genius mechanical invention that has been ticking since before the time of our ancestors, before our grandparents were born. A vintage watch represents all of the following: art, movement and beautiful timeless jewelry as well as engineering and technology within a historical perspective.
Our collections are carefully selected. every vintage piece is connected to a [hi]story. We first emphasize restoration of the time pieces, followed by investigations to find the background of the watch. Having said that, sometimes the face of the watch speaks for itself, most of the time we have the original papers and original box of the watch or find extracts from the archives to make the collection of the watch meaningful.
The watches on our website are a very small selection of our Vintage Watch inventory available for collectors. If you are looking for something specific, we can assist you in finding it, either from our large vintage inventory not listed on this site or from one of the private vintage watch collections that we curate. Please contact us, we would love to connect you to your beautiful timeless vintage watches.
