It’s fascinating how watches witnessed some of the most important historical moments.
Alfonso Minondo never imagined he’d fall in love with watches. Yet there he was, in the shop of his Swiss friend, awestruck by his vintage collection. Something about them fascinated Alfonso so much that he just couldn’t forget about it. The very same friend gave him his first watch as a present: an automatic from the 70s, a Rado Manhattan marking the start of his collection. Back home in Spain, Alfonso started working in an Omega Group certified workshop, where he learned all the tricks of the trade: repairing, appraising and trading on a daily basis. Alfonso Minondo has always been a team player. That’s why he enjoys working with his fellow experts at Catawiki. Together, they make the best auctions possible. For Alfonso, this means being absolutely sure of the quality and originality of his lots. That’s why he demands to know all of the specifics, with detailed photographs to back them up. From his network of fellow collectors, Alfonso knows the broad range of watches, timepieces and chronographs they like to collect. This inspires him to make varied auctions, with unique models that you’ll find impossible to resist.
