At WatchInvest, we believe in investing in a watch for its beauty and intrinsic value. We also believe that such an investment should be wisely chosen and increase in value in time. A spin-off of Horological Investments, Inc., WatchInvest is a privately owned corporation that became a leading source of advisory and information on timepieces and watch market used by collectors, investors, and institutions. Our sister company - European Watch and Casemakers (EWC) - specializes in restorations . Our chief expert, Mr. Philip Poniz, is one of the foremost experts on antique and modern high end wristwatches, clocks and horological fakes.
Some of the largest private and corporate watch collections in the world have been formed by us. The company assisted financial institutions in securing watch collections as collateral, helped dozens of writers, auction houses, libraries, and academic institutions in their research. We own the world’s largest electronic horological library with over eight million files. Horological writers use it for their research, auction houses for their important pieces, and collectors for making sure their purchases are safe. Tens of thousands of timepieces went through our hands for research and used our expertise to be sold in the global art marketplace. Our over 35 years of horological expertise and research oriented approach make us unique in being a horological company able to form, restore, maintain, and liquidate a collection or a single timepiece.
