HODINKEE Presents “Talking Watches” with Alfredo Paramico
As HODINKEE grows and continues to unearth the world of niche watch collecting, the site has also uncovered the faces that covet them. Existing behind the curtain is Alfredo Paramico, an Italian-born investment banker-turned-watch-connoisseur, regarded perhaps as the authority on top-tier Patek Phillipes, Longines and Rolexes. Paramico exists in a plane where platinum chronometers sell for upwards of $3 million USD, where even the simplest of cases have deep-seated roots in military and cultural history. The rare, luxurious pieces in his collection create an entertaining collage of the passionate Paramico, who now sits as a chief officer behind the Precious Time Fund – which buys, sells and holds rare timepieces.
