We would like to introduce you to Ulrich Kriescher, Auctionata expert in Wrist Watches & Pocket Watches as well as Clocks.

If you come from a family of watchmakers, you learn watch making from the cradle. Master watchmaker Ulrich Kriescher has been dealing with valuable and antique watches for over 20 years.

His area of expertise is the restoration of antique watches and repairing valuable wrist watches. A publication in a specialist magazine for antique watches about the restoration work on an antique grandfather clock from Kinzing & Roentgen worth over € 400,000 Euro and his appearances on the television programme on WDR have made him known as a watch expert. He was appointed "watchmaker to the court" due to his services to the historical watch collection of the Prince of Merode.

Since 2006, Ulrich Kriescher has been a publicly appointed and sworn expert in watch making. His competence and impartiality is not only very valuable to the court when serving as an expert witness, but also in other areas: More frequently, he supports museums, auction houses, insurance companies, authorities, companies and private customers in his role as an expert. 

Ulrich Kriescher lives and works in Würselen.
