“Time and space are tools of our thinking , not conditions that limit our lives”, this is the philosophy of Tempus , watchmaker in the heart of Padua.

Tempus through prestigious international auctions and through personal connections with collectors and dealers can provide any other important watch over the stock , both vintage and current production , providing a guarantee of authenticity and proper operation for one year.
Tempus also , through the experience and professionality of Alessandro Corazza, technical watchmaker, Elvio Piva’s collaborator since many years , and specialized in polishing and repair , with only original parts of any watch, offers the opportunity of servicing your watches with the maximum cure anf precision.
A watch is passion and technique , buying it is a rational and instinctive choice at the same time , a choice that hides reason and feeling, but it is undeniable that the watches chosen and proposed by Tempus are a real investment , a certain and continuous economic evaluation.
