IT RUNS IN THE FAMILYAdmirably living up to their Italian name which means “precious”, four members and two generations of the Geneva-based Antoine Preziuso clan – Antoine himself, his wife May, son Florian Watchmaker and daughter Laura Jewelery & Designer – each make an inestimably valuable contribution to the art of keeping and embellishing time.

All of which does not prevent him from continuing to place his inventive mind in the service of other great names.
Throughout his career to date, Antoine has been able to count upon the unstinting support of his wife May handling administration, logistics, marketing and communication.
