Antique and vintage watches

Beyer Chronometrie has specialised in the sale of antique and vintage watches since 1965. Many of these rare items come with an extract from the archives of the manufacturer. Our watchmakers give each timepiece a thorough overhaul before it is handed over to its new owner. At Beyer you will also find magnificent antique watches that have been keeping time reliably for years and vintage models that are no longer produced. Each of them has a history and a soul.

We are happy to show you our trove of vintage and antique finds or, if your heart is set on a particular reference number, to embark on a treasure hunt on your behalf.

Visit our Beyer Vintage Instagram page for more details.

We offer the following additional services

  • Repair / restoration: All watches are completely overhauled by our specially trained watchmakers or by the relevant manufacturer.
  • Extract from the archives: Watches by Patek Philippe, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Longines and Omega are provided with an extract from the manufacturer’s archives confirming their authenticity, based on the case and movement numbers.
  • Certificate: All watches are accompanied by a certificate from Beyer Chronometrie, containing a detailed description of the case and the movement.
  • Guarantee: We give a one-year technical guarantee on all antique and vintage watches (excluding water-resistance).

  • A valuable antique watch is accompanied by an extract from the manufacturer’s archives, a certificate and a guarantee.
  • 1a quality is the best (no scratches on the glass, no cracks in the dial).
