My experience as a goldsmith helps me with evaluating watches.
Although Joaquin Fernandez Cebrian has always loved watches, his passion for watches really started during a tennis tournament that he took part in. Breitling, the famous watch manufacturer, hosted a small exhibition at the tournament with the newest models. It was love at first sight for the young Joaquin as he started saving money for his first Breitling. Since then he has been a real watch fanatic, keeping informed on all the new trends in the watch industry, takes part in fairs and regularly meets up with other enthusiasts. Unlike most enthusiasts, Joaquin Fernandez Cebrian doesn't like showing off his watches. He prefers keeping them discrete. According to Joaquin, this discretion doesn't apply to the watches at Catawiki; these need to be as well-presented as possible. He therefore regularly advises sellers on how to make good photos, on cleaning watches properly and giving the right information. This way the bidder knows exactly what he or she is bidding on and the seller ultimately gets higher revenues. Thanks to his experience as a goldsmith, Joaquin Fernandez Cebrian is able to evaluate the quality of golden watches and watches with inlaid jewels correctly. He loves doing this because each week he finds it incredibly exciting to see which beautiful watches are on offer.
