The Antoine Preziuso Geneve is an independent and family run luxury watch brand owned by Preziuso family. Antoine Preziuso, a talented watch maker and restorer who was born and brought up in the world of horology launched his own luxury Swiss watch brand in 1990.

Antoine Preziuso Geneve is specialised in the manufacturing of complications such as tourbillon wrist watches, tourbillon wrist watches with jumping hours and minute repeaters with perpetual calendar, Minute repeaters with automatons, erotic automaton wrist watches, second time zone and unique timepieces.

For three exciting and fulfilling decades, ANTOINE PREZIUSO has been forging an intensely personal and groundbreaking path in the watchmaking world. Drawing upon a proud heritage of fine craftsmanship and yet refusing the constraints of conventions, he has produced a wealth of outstanding creations that are appreciated by watch lovers and connoisseurs the world over.

Whether commissioned by some of the best-known names in watchmaking, or issued under his own brand, models by ANTOINE PREZIUSO are distinguished by a unique blend of Latin artistry and design flair doubtless stemming from his family origins, along with skilled Swiss workmanship resolutely inspired by his native city of Geneva.

The surname “Preziuso” means “precious’’ in Italian, and Antoine came to appreciate the precious nature of time from a very early age. His fascination with watchmaking made him eager to begin training in this field, and by the age of 21 this young man in a hurry had graduated at the top of his class as a fully qualified watchmaker and restorer.

Through over a decade and a half spent working for some of the most prestigious brands in the watch industry, as well as for the specialised horological auctioneering house Antiquorum, for the Geneva Watch Museum, and for collectors in general, ANTOINE PREZIUSO consistently cultivated his twin fields of interest: restoring antique timepieces to their former splendour; and creating sophisticated watches housing major horological complications.

ANTOINE PREZIUSO GENÈVE continued to attract attention by the spectacular designs, fascinating complications and superlative finishing of its sophisticated models. Commissions from major firms and cooperation with other creative talents in the watchmaking world fostered international expansion and the opening of new markets. Accustomed to introducing world firsts, including in the “ART OF TOURBILLON“ range which has become an acknowledged brand speciality, ANTOINE PREZIUSO GENÈVE is also dedicated to research into new materials. It thus became the first firm to feature meteorite in its timepieces – setting a stellar trend that shows no sign of fading.

One of the key strengths of ANTOINE PREZIUSO lies in his ability to place a wealth of designer skills and know-how in the service of a broad range of customers. Collectors and connoisseurs of fine watchmaking, as well as enthusiasts and novices, are all able to find within the brand collections models that appeal to their individual tastes and requirements. From one-of-a-kind made-to-measure creations, sophisticated complications and diamond-set jewellery models, through to more affordable watches such as the Grand Robusto for men and Moonlight for women, ANTOINE PREZIUSO GENÈVE brings high-end horology within reach of all those with a serious penchant for fine craftsmanship, technical refinement and original styling.

Geneva is home to two generations of PREZIUSO artists who devote their art and their talent to the art of measuring time. Antoine, the founder and his wife May, along with their two children Florian and Laura, have made their family name a full-fledged profession of faith. Florian, after pursuing the same studies as his father, is now closely involved in all the company‘s new designs, and masters every aspect of R&D and production. His sister Laura divides her time between teaching at the Geneva School of Applied Art and creating mechanical jewellery – a unique approach to the world of high-class jewellery. Antoine‘s wife May, meanwhile, manages all the various facets of this family affair, to complete a creative trio.

All those who since 2006 have entered the workshops of ANTOINE PREZIUSO can feel a sense of entering the intimacy of a family environment. Firmly united around a set of intrinsic values and also sharing a taste for fine craftsmanship and creativity, the members of the Preziuso family are bound by ties of mutual trust an admiration. This family spirit naturally also extends to the surrounding team, composed of highly qualified and strongly motivated professionals that ANTOINE PREZIUSO has brought together in order to help him give life to his creations.
