Face to Face deal + Consignment + Looking for a watch


Markus Tschopp

It was my main interest in mechanical watches that started my career in Watch trading.

It all began in the 1990’s when I walked along the Rag fairs in search of rare watches. Gradually I realised more and more the increasing interest of many people for these difficult to find mechanical watches.

Over the Years I became a real passionate collector and I began to search especially for the more valuable and more complicated watches.

To be able to afford these unique watches, I had to sell some of my own collectibles out of my own collection,

Little by little this selling made it possible to establish a network of many like-minded people (people who are interested in unique and older mechanical watches).

In 1998 I established my first company Silver Magic GmBH which specialized in trading high class watches.

With the help of my network of watch collectors and traders I was able to develop a large clientele very quickly.

In 1995 the internet was just beginning and with its rapid development I was one of the first e-retailers with my own online shop, thus I was able to increase my data base of collectors and traders from all over the world.

In 2005 (some 10 years after starting with the internet), I changed the company name to Mercurius Trading Limited based in Baar, Switzerland.

My contemporary focus is trading rare and limited edition watches from Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, IWC, Jaeger LeCoultre, Officine Panerai and Patek Philippe.

My specialisation came about not least because of my database of clients but with your help now and in the future.

New business always pose new challenges and I am pleased to accept these challenges and to manage them and build further relations with new clients as well.
