Watches are a miracle of tiny parts all working precisely together.
Michael Schumann’s fascination with watches started at an early age. He was especially fascinated by all the parts which together combine to make a working machine. Later he started collecting watches, building a collection of more than 300 timepieces. To develop his collection, Michael read a lot about watches and exchanged and traded at watch fairs. He also enjoys studying watches inside and out so he knows exactly how they work.
Michael is thrilled by the number of different watches offered at Catawiki. He is hooked on watches with fine mechanics, but nicely designed quartz watches also have their place. Michael is a strict but fair auctioneer. He thinks it’s very important to include photos of the mechanics and inspection reports which show whether the watches have been properly maintained.
