我們的創始人

鄭廉威(Tay Liam Wee) 主席 鄭廉威被公認為是鍾表業最具活力的企業家之一。他幫助將先施錶行從傳統的家族企業轉變為汎亞洲奢侈手錶機構,並於2012年在新加坡和香港上市銷售。WatchBox的崛起見證了鄭廉威脫離了退休生活重新投入鐘錶業並把WatchBox打造成全球中古錶業街的翹楚。Danny和鄭廉威是相識已久的朋友,兩人此次合作代表了兩大全球手錶市場的統一。
Danny Govberg 首席執行官,聯合創辦人 Danny是當代鐘錶業的先鋒力量。他對手錶和技術的遠見和永不滿足的熱情促使Govberg從一家位於費城的零售店發展成為世界頂級授權經銷商之一,無論是新款和二手鐘錶。 Danny很久以前就意識到,銷售新款手錶只是支持手錶收藏家生活的一種方式,並啟動了一項技術前沿的二手戰略,激發了WatchBox的發展。
Justin Reis 聯合創辦人 Justin Reis是一位經驗豐富的投資者和各行各業的企業家。 他在與企業和管理團隊合作並將業務營運、模式擴展到全球水平方面擁有豐富的經驗。他在亞洲私募股權投資方面的20多年經驗對於擴展WatchBox的亞洲分部至關重要。

我們的任務

全球鐘錶業的先鋒變革。
