Conversations with Per Henriksen Franz Jaeger
Per Henriksen Franz Jaeger works at Jaeger & Me, a vintage watch store located in the heart of Copenhagen.
I visited Per Henriksen to interview him about the vintage watch market. We had a long good conversation about the growing marked of vintage watches and his relationship with the different brands. He told me that he would never be able to make or remake his own components, and is dependent on brands to supply the missing components in order to repair some of the watches he receives. He pointed out that pre-worn watches was an emerging market and he saw pressure from larger commercial competitors, like Illum (one of Scandinavia's largest department store). He told me an interesting fact about mother of pearl dials; they are more expensive and needs to be handled more carefully than diamond dials.
