Our selection process.

Only around 2% of the watches we research make it through our selection process.

Our selection process begins with analyzing our proprietary database and identifying watch models that have high demand or watch models that show likelihood of having high demand in the future. After that, we narrow our focus down to individual watches and analyze the unique properties of each watch.

These include intrinsic value factors such as the movement of the watch, and also market value factors, such number of watches in circulation vs. number of watches produced, which gives a proxy for the collectibility of the watch. After that, we use our expansive network in the luxury watch industry to get the best possible price for the watch.

How it works

Step 1

We find the most iconic watches and secure them at an attractive price

We use our expertise and our valuation-model to determine which watch models have the most momentum and future potential.

Step 2

We purchase the Watch

We review thousands of examples of watches and buy less than 2% of what we’re offered

Step 3

You Invest in a watch

You choose a watch and buy in fractions using asset-backed NFTs.

Once you purchase a Tick, that Tick represents one share in the respective watch worth 100 Swiss Francs (CHF). You can buy multiple Ticks and thereby own a bigger share of the watch.

Step 4

We hold the Watch 3-5 years, monitor selling opportunities, and exit before maturity

We securely hold the watch. Wait until we sell the watch, or another club member decides to move to full ownership to receive your pro rata proceeds, after our fees.
