Antiquorum's joint efforts with Tourneau yield new resources for timepiece aficionados

Auctions are the centerpiece of a joint venture designed by Antiquorum Auctioneers and watch retailer Tourneau to expand their markets in the U.S.

The venture's first timepiece and jewelry auction was held May 11 in New York, NY. Others are scheduled this month in New York City and later this year in Hong Kong and Geneva.

Other plans include invitations to consumers to bring their timepieces to Tourneau on certain days for a complimentary appraisal by Antiquorum.

And for retailers and consumers, Antiquorum and Tourneau plan to present seminars, lectures, a horology book publishing program and Internet auctions.

The companies say that as they expand their customer base, retailers and manufacturers should benefit from the expanding consumer interest in fine timepieces and horology.

Antiquorum, New York, NY; (212) 750-1103, www.antiquorum.com.
