Meet the Chasing Chrono team
Built by watch enthusiasts to promote and elevate watch dealers across the UK, whilst providing outstanding value to both buyers and sellers, Chasing Chrono was born from our co-founders’ passion for watches and technological innovation.
Our team is on a mission to support the British watch market, while listening to and learning from industry experts and growing an online community of lovers of all things horological through a single national platform.
Co-founder & Director
With a background in finance and business development, and a longstanding love of watches and cars, Gerry lives and breathes the Chasing Chrono mission. As a luxury watch buyer himself, the COVID Lockdown provided time for him to reflect on the challenges facing watch buyers and sellers, particularly in a post-Brexit world in the UK. Building a central national marketplace for the British watch industry felt like a great opportunity to overcome some of those challenges, whilst also ‘flying the flag’ for UK watch experts by providing a single ‘go to’ hub for the British watch market.
Co-founder & Director
With an entrepreneurial spirit and a record of building successful businesses through digital innovation, James is a huge watch enthusiast. His love of all-things creative and mechanical extends to an equally strong passion for art and cars. James has his sights firmly set on making Chasing Chrono the favoured destination for watch buyers in Britain, through the growth of the UK’s first national marketplace for watch dealers and makers, offering transparent value and homegrown expertise.
