Before catching his plane back to London, author Nick Foulkes stopped by Beyer Watches & Jewellery to talk watches, history and - of course - time with René Beyer. When a spontaneous visit turns into one of the most enjoyable Beyer Talks to date…
Less than a five minute walk from Beyer Watches & Jewellery you will find the famous Confiserie Sprüngli shop and café, welcoming customers since 1859. Back then, Paradeplatz was still called Neumarkt. Now, 162 years later, its first floor serves as a stage for the newest Beyer-Talk with Sprüngli descendants Milan and Tomas Prenosil.
Beyer and Maurice de Mauriac. Two family-owned businesses. Two places where
watch lovers meet. And two names Zurich wouldn’t be the same without. Daniel
Dreifuss managed to not only found his own watch brand but built it on such a
solid foundation, he can now safely lean back and hand matters over to his sons.
In this Beyer-Talk you’ll find out how he did it and why he does not plan on
simply leaning back.
Always wanted to ask René Beyer a question?
Our first guest on Beyer Talk needs no introduction. Every watch enthusiast knows the name Jean-Claude Biver. In this episode, René Beyer talks to the industry’s most visionary icon about timepieces and the industry in general. The pair also discuss their friendship – all over a pot of fondue!
From vintage to pre-loved and pre-owned, there are many terms to describe watches that used to belong to somebody else. But few people know them as well as Aurel Bacs, probably the world’s top watch auctioneer. He joins a three-way discussion with Dörte Herold, Head of the Beyer Vintage Department, and René Beyer on the subject of pre-loved watches.
