A Passion for the Past

Is it the time Antoine spent as a restorer of the finest vintage timepieces for the famous auction-house Antiquorum that lies behind his passion for watchmaking history – or was this just the perfect soil for this passion to flourish? It is hard to say but, whatever the truth, this passion has never faltered. Over the years Antoine Preziuso has built up a vast library of technical and historical books about time-honoured watchmaking techniques and the great watchmakers of the past. The old movements he seeks out and collects are a source of inspiration and help assuage this passion. As well as designing and making watches, Antoine Preziuso continues to carry out delicate restoration work and to encourage his team of craftsmen to constantly renew and expand their expert knowledge.
