Is undoubtedly a portal for the online sale of watches but it is structured in a way that I consider the right way to approach this world.
The photos of the watches are taken by me with the watch physically in my hand trying to highlight the peculiarities. I don't like sites with magazine pictures that could have been taken anywhere and by anyone.
I still don't have the option of buying automatically because I always prefer to talk to the buyer to describe the watch and convey what the watch has conveyed to me.
The sale, if it is finalised, is the concluding act of an exchange of emotions.
This is my latest project, but it is the one that comes from the furthest back. Many years ago, one Sunday I stumbled into a chronograph I never saw before: a black dial, a triangle bezel and a very light extendable bracelet. To get my attention, the street trader said: "Mind you, this watch is the first Speedmaster ever made!". I replied: "In fat, it does seem particular, quite old...! I never saw it before. Is it authentic?". I tried to haggle a bit over the price, because I knew what it was, but I never saw it personally before I knew it was the iconic "Speedmaster". From that day, I developed a love for this particular model. In fact, the watch which by the way, is In a matter of days, I read and put in my memory the entire story of that chronograph.
Since then I have always, over the past thirty years, continued to put aside, to keep with even a little healthy jealousy, all the most beautiful Speedmasters that I was lucky enough to come across. Some I have found by chance, perhaps in a shop or at a collector friend's; others I have stubbornly pursued, sometimes changing continents or participating in auctions that were either famous or unknown. The result is that today my Speedy and those belonging to a small number of top-level collections, on the pages of "Magister" tell the story of this chrono, they are ticking witnesses to it. So, to have chosen to do this volume was an absolutely simple and natural decision: I wanted to share with other enthusiasts like myself the beauty of this extraordinary chronograph.
To do this, I put together an exceptional team, leaving nothing to chance.
