Founded by Jonathan Wachsmann in 1973, Pieces of Time has been the foremost name in the antique timepiece market for over 40 years. Alan Grant joined the business in 1983, sharing Johnny’s love for antique watches and innovation. Our mail order catalogue was amongst the first to reach collectors and dealers not only in the UK but worldwide. We then launched antique-watch.com in 1995 when “online shopping” was in its infancy. From launch, our site quickly became the largest specialist antique site on the Internet – a position it retains to this day, nearly two decades later. Since those early days, people have become more accustomed to shopping online and our catalogue is well established. To date we have published 96 catalogues and, for ease of reference, our site lists every watch we have ever sold, accompanied by over 17,000 images.
Pieces of Time自1973年由Jonathan Wachsmann创立,历经40年发展成为古董钟表市场上最响亮的品牌。Alan Grant于1983年加盟，与Johnny共同分享对古董钟表的热情与创意。我们的邮购画册第一次被送达到世界各地的收藏家和经销商手中。在1995年，“网上购物”还处于起步阶段时，我们推出了antique-watch.com网站。从推出以来，我们网站迅速成为互联网上最大的专业古玩网店，时近20年之后，仍然保持这一地位。自我们创业初期，人们就已越来越习惯于网上购物，而我们的产品目录也已成型。到目前为止，我们已经出版了96期产品目录，为了便于参考，配以170000多张图像。
