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.
Always dedicated to research into new materials he became the first watchmaker to feature meteorite in his timepieces – setting a stellar trend that shows no sign of diminishing.
