Le Collection’Heure/

Le Collection’Heure is one of the world’s leading watch galleries based in Brussels & Luxembourg. Owned by Antoine Rauis, a former business lawyer, who has been collecting watches for over 25 years.

The presentation includes an exclusive selection of vintage timepieces as well as two very exciting retrospectives.

The first retrospective is dedicated to the work of Gerald Genta, the “master of design”. It features iconic watches such as the Patek Philippe Nautilus and Golden Elipse, the first Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (including some original sketches) and the Cartier Pasha.

The second retrospective traces the history of the Rolex Daytona, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, presenting all the models from the first series to the current production, including some very rare “Paul Newman” models.

Furthermore, some timepieces with extraordinary pedigree are presented, including the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar owned by Andy Warhol, the Rolex Submariner belonging to David Brown (iconic owner of Aston Martin) and F1 legend Jackie Stewart’s Rolex Milgauss.
