WATCHFINDER & CO: ARJEN VAN DE VALL APPOINTED CEO OF SECOND-HAND WATCH SPECIALIST

On 1 April 2021, Arjen Van De Vall officially became the new CEO of second-hand watch specialist Watchfinder & Co. He will bring all his know-how and digital expertise to the company.

 

Prior to this appointment, Arjen Van De Vall gained some of his extensive experience alongside the well-known e-commerce company, Rakuten. Indeed, he spent seven years of his life working and developing this business. This Japanese company, created in 1997 by Hiroshi Mikitani, is a company specializing in fintech and digital content, but also in communications.

 

Founded in 2002, Watchfinder & Co offers to buy, then resell best-sellers up to limited and vintage editions of timepieces. It features 70 of the most prestigious brands, including Rolex, Cartier, Omega and Audemars Piguet.

 

“We are very happy to welcome Arjen among us. He will bring his extraordinary digital expertise to our group, and more specifically to Watchfinder. His international experience will be essential to drive the continued evolution and expansion of Watchfinder, and to further exploit its immense potential,” said Jérôme Lambert, CEO of the Richemont Group.

 

The development of the second-hand market, otherwise known as second-hand, has meant that companies like Watchfinder & Co have quickly established themselves in this market. The Richemont Group has seized the opportunity of this new opportunity, acquiring the number one second-hand watch company, Watchfinder & Co, in May 2018. Richemont, the world’s second largest luxury group, also owns the most prestigious Houses in the sector such as Jaeger Lecoultre, Piaget, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and many others.

 

This appointment is a real opportunity for Arjen Van de De Vall, given his past and future career. His experience will allow him to bring all his light to the development and expansion planned by Watchfinder & Co.

But Arjen Van De Vall will not be leading the undisputed leader in the buying, selling and trading of high-end pre-owned watches alone.

 

Alongside Matt Bowling, Watchfinder’s co-founder and interim CEO for the past year, they will work together and continue to expand the company’s growth.
