The passion began with a Chronoswiss.
My name is Andreas Hildebrand and my passion for watches developed about 28 years ago. The first real watch worth mentioning was a Chronoswiss, which devoured my monthly income during the training period - but it had to be mine!
Gradually more watches were added: for sports, one from my birth year and of course a watch with a complication. I attended the first watch auctions and depending on my wallet, the collection grew.
During my 28 years of collecting, I developed an enormous knowledge of watch technology, the manufacturers - their philosophy, distribution channels as well as a network to many dealers.
2008, the time came to turn this hobby into a profession. I founded
watches24.com. My watch collection mainly consists of
sporty steel watches, modern classics or watches that have the
potential to become one.
