The history of hand-wound movements goes back several centuries and even today, elegant pocket- and wrist watches featuring this traditional type of movement are very popular. The clockwork of hand-wound watches is moved by a spring which receives its energy from winding the crown.
A watch for a dynamic lifestyle: Many prefer the convenience of automatic movements. Through the kinetic energy of the wearer’s arm movements, a flywheel is rotated which in turn winds up the spring. When worn daily an automatic watch does not need to be manually wound at all - the power reserve is practically endless.
Quartz watches, unlike automatic and hand-wound watches are not viewed as mechanical watches. They do not need to be wound and draw their energy from a small battery. Due to the relatively simple manufacturing process and their versatility, quartz movements are highly popular and especially common in bracelet- and instrument watches.
A watch has many lives. That is why at CHRONEXT, you can buy new as well as certified pre-owned watches. For the collectors and enthusiasts, we also offer a wide range of vintage timepieces.
An investment, a gift, a tradition: Luxury watches are made for eternity. In order to start a new tradition or give someone a very special gift, many watch enthusiasts opt for a new or mint condition watch. “Mint condition” means that while the watch has been on the wrist before, it is in absolute pristine condition - like new. In our online shop, you can find a wide selection of new and mint condition watches from luxury brands like Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, IWC, Breitling, Hublot and many others. Should you be unable to find a certain brand-new model, we will be happy to source it for you and offer you a price. For new as well as mint condition watches in our online shop, we offer a 24-month warranty as well as a free part revision within two years.
A watch for eternity: In all probability, a timekeeper by Audemars Piguet or Patek Philippe that is a hundred years old is still running flawlessly today. Thanks to this extraordinary longevity, pre-owned watches are extremely popular. The market for pre-owned watches offers a wide selection as well as affordable prices. Highly sought-after limited editions can often only be found in pre-owned condition and more often than not have undergone a steep increase in price at resale. The majority of used watches, though, represent a great alternative to brand-new models: Often, the price difference can amount to as much as 20 to 40 percent. The purchase of a pre-owned watch requires a thorough inspection and the verification of its authenticity. Our CHRONEXT certificate guarantees the authenticity of every watch.
Among collectors and enthusiasts, vintage watches have always enjoyed exceptional status. At CHRONEXT, watches that are older than 20 years are classified as ‘vintage’. Vintage watches have stood the relentless tests of time and their price is usually many times higher. Vintage models by Patek Philippe, Rolex, and many other brands regularly achieve record-breaking prices at resale. But not all luxury watches from history have to cost a fortune: the vintage market offers a wide selection of watches that are far more affordable than their successors. Because of the wide variety and often inadequate documentation, the vintage market is full of possible pitfalls. Because of this, we pay special attention to verifying the quality and authenticity of the single components of every vintage watch that is being sold through CHRONEXT. This we guarantee with our CHRONEXT certificate.
