Pre-loved watches

By specialising in antique and vintage watches, we were ahead of the current vintage trend in 1940. Today we carry rare automatic watches, manually wound watches and quartz watches – many with an extract from the manufacturer’s index confirming their authenticity. We would be happy to show you our collection or go on a treasure hunt for you if you have your heart set on something specific.

People at Beyer

“The future belongs to the past”

Ms. Herold is Head of the Beyer Vintage Department. Since 2016, the art historian has been enhancing the Beyer team with her many years of experience and expertise – and adding historical treasures to our range of vintage timepieces by purchasing vintage bijoux and watches for Beyer from private individuals, dealers and auctions around the world. 

Ms Herold is available from Tuesday to Friday.

People at Beyer

“Every watch tells a story”

In 2004, Beyer launched a special service with the assistance of Ursula Junger: the trouvailles trade. Since then, the goldsmith has sold some 200 second-hand watches with a certificate of authenticity each year. “It’s satisfying work because each of these watches often comes with a touching story”

Ms Junger is available from Tuesday to Friday.

Our service for antique and vintage watches


Our trained watchmakers or the corresponding manufacturers completely recondition all watches before they are handed over to the buyer.

Extract from the manufacturer’s index

The watches of Patek Philippe, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and Omega will receive an extract from the corresponding manufacturer’s index if available. The extract confirms the authenticity of the watches based on the case and movement number.


All watches are accompanied by a Beyer Chronometrie Certificate, which contains a detailed description of the case and movement.


We offer a technical guarantee of one year (except water-resistance) on antique and vintage watches.
