The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 99: The Secondary Market with Tim Stracke, co-CEO and Founder of Chrono24


The secondary market is playing an increasingly important role with regard to how people buy and sell watches, and nobody knows more about the secondary marketplace than Tim Stracke, the Co-CEO of Chrono24. With over 3,000 verified dealers and 20,000 private sellers moving 400,000 watches at any given time, Chrono24 is the world’s largest specialized market for watches, so we wanted to get Tim on the podcast to talk about how his platform is different from others in the space, how consumers use it to get their dream watches, and how brands are reacting to this burgeoning space.

This week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast is brought to you by Alpina and their AlpinerX Smart Outdoors watch. With the AlpinerX, Alpina brings over 135 years of watchmaking experience to a modern, connected sport watch. A robust and highly-functional outdoor companion, the AlpinerX is water-resistant up to 100m and features an altitude, barometer, and temperature display, a compass, connected GPS functionality, a UV indicator, and world timer. The AlpinerX also seamlessly connects to your smartphone via the AlpinerX app to track activity, receive notifications, and adjust watch settings. To learn more about the AlpinerX Smart Outdoors watch, or to learn more about Alpina’s work with the National Park Foundation, please go to
