About Us

The auction world is constantly evolving, just like the watch industry.



We are here to take this to the
next level, putting together watchmakers, techies
and auction experts.



The Founders

Nicolas Secretan

Co-founder | Digital

Born and raised in a family of musicians, Nicolas has studied percussions and classical singing for fifteen years. From then on, Nicolas went to the University of Geneva where he studied Information Technology and Finance.

Nicolas is also active in politics and has previously worked in the auction world, for well-known houses like Tarisio in New York and FX TOURTE HONG KONG Ltd. in Asia.

Passionate about vintage watches, he co-founded ORBIS Auctions in 2022 with Luca. Managing everything that happens behind-the-scenes, he is also taking care of the auction platform that will be launched next year.

Luca Cretin

Co-founder | Watchmaker

While doing his traineeship as a Microtechnician specialising in restoration/complications, Luca gained hands-on experience with luxury watches by repairing every watch he could find, from his own to his clients’. His expertise lead him to work for famous watch brands in Switzerland.

In his free time, he has founded various projects and provides after-sale services for Antenen & Adinolfi in Le Brassus.

In 2023, Luca obtained his Watch Expert license and is able to legally authentify the watches in his hands.
