Patek Philippe

Talking to René Beyer of Beyer Chronometrie located at Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich

 

Beyer Chronometrie has been selling most of these above mentioned brands already for decades. Patek Philippe for instance for more than 165 years and Rolex for almost 100 years.

I personally know René for more than 20 years and I can tell you we both share the same enthusiasm and passion for watches. But it must tick to be real cool!

Please allow me to draw your attention to Only Watch 2017

 

This synergy, under the patronage and support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, driven by the enthusiasm shown by individuals within the brands and partners, shows a deep wish to help this noble cause. In six editions, Only Watch has raised more than 25 million euros for Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy) helping make significant advances in research over a decade.

 

Christie’s will be conducting the auction for the first time
