Antiquorum Hosts Special ...

Geneva, 21st January 2013 - In conjunction with its partnership as an official sponsor of the Geneva Time Exhibition, Antiquorum is thrilled to host a special display of exhibitors' pieces in its Geneva showroom.

This display, open to the public, is being held from 15th January until the 11th February and features a selection of high-end brands also participating in the GTE: Badollet, Celsius X VI II, Drakkar, Hautlence, Laurent Ferrier, Manufacture Royale, H.Moser & Cie, Quinting, Reuge and Speake-Marin. Most of the models exhibited in the Antiquorum showroom are also exhibited at GTE, but shown in different variations or materials.

“Hosting a special exhibition where clients and visitors can view these special brands in an intimate setting is yet another way for Antiquorum to support and promote the know-how, expertise and innovation of the independent Swiss watchmakers,” said Julien Schaerer, Watch Expert and Managing Director, Antiquorum Geneva.

Following are the models on display as well as some inspiration behind the designs:
