Next week, on March 29th, Giorgia Mondani is doing us the honor of coming to our shop at 26 rue du Bac in order to present the entire collection of Rolex books by Mondani and offer a free valuation day to estimate your watches by Antiquorum specialists.
I remember perfectly when I met Romain for the first time. It was 2008 when I used to work for Antiquorum. I was attending a luxury show in Monaco (Top Marques) and he had a booth there. At the same time my father Guido came to visit me and sold a lot of books to Romain. We never “left each other” since!
My dad used to collaborate a lot with Osvaldo Patrizzi, Founder and former Director of Antiquorum, so I became familiar with the company at a very young age. I attended many auctions and in 2007 I went to work for Antiquorum. It was supposed to be a three month internship but the experience was so wonderful that I decided to stay longer. I ended up living in Geneva for more than a year and a half, working as Karin Tasso’s Marketing Assistant (who’s a good friend now and an amazing business woman by the way).
I like the way Romain does business, I like his seriousness and passion for what he does. I think we share these values and I love what he is doing with Antiquorum.
The auction house went through some very difficult years and taking over the company was not easy. He did a excellent job with the Antiquorum team: a strong group of professionals who love Antiquorum and who give it their best. Antiquorum is back to its rightful place in center stage, and with its original credibility thanks to his and our hard work. For me it is a pleasure to be able to contribute professionally to this project.
I handle Social Media Management and Promotion. I create and post content every day for the official Antiquorum Instagram and Facebook accounts and I promote each event (auctions, results, valuation days, etc) through all Mondani channels (more than 1.5 million followers on social media and thousands of genuine collectors who visit our websites and read our newsletters).
For me, this day is the perfect occasion to meet watch collectors from France, and to touch base with many of my French clients. For French collectors it is a unique chance to get a free estimate of their timepieces by highly experienced watch experts and see the entire collection of Mondani Books (with the chance to get a special gift as well as great discounts throughout the day). For Antiquorum it is another opportunity to meet watch collectors and find “rare birds” to consign for upcoming auctions.
