Watchmaker looking to the watch

Our watchmakers

Our team of watchmakers has significant experience working at official service centers and watch boutiques, and work with top tier watch brands such as Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Omega, Breitling and Tudor. Our watchmakers are trained according to the highest standards to comply with Relleb's vision and quality standards to ensure that you, as a customer, will get that 100% authentic watch. We are driven by the belief that safe online buying of authentic pre-owned luxury watches should be available for everyone.

Kenny Vaes

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Kenny lives in Rotterdam. His love for wristwatches was born at a young age, considering a watch being the most defining jewelry for men as a true character representation of the men wearing the timepiece. Scattering long nights on the internet on all that is to be found about the watch market, Kenny concluded watch buyers are fully exposed to unauthentic counterfeit and fake watch sellers. Current platforms are deferring all risks and responsibility towards buyers, which feels contrary to the core concept of buying a pre-owned luxury watch. Together with his experience gained at Deloitte in technology business ventures, he decided to start and provide watch authentication for watch enthusiasts.

Marcel Spermon

Growing up in a small village near Rotterdam, Marcel was raised in a loving family and was taught that everything is possible if you set your mind to it and are willing to work hard for it. Fast forward two decades, a degree in Economics, a bucket of working experience and a great network later Marcel grew a love for wristwatches. Collecting watches from a young age developed into a passion for the craft, and to the founding of Relleb together with his companion Kenny Vaes. Besides his love for watches Marcel is a sports enthusiast!

Mikhail Lortkipanidze

Mikhail has been a big fan of wristwatches since a young age. His love for collecting started when he got his first wristwatch as a gift from his cousin, a sailor who brought it to him from his long voyage. Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Mikhail dedicated over two decades to the tech industry – first studying as an engineer and then building marketplaces in different countries and markets as a Product Manager. That is how he ended up in Amsterdam working for OLX Group, a Prosus company. Later, Mikhail met Kenny and Marcel, who shared the grand vision of making an online purchase of authentic luxury watches safe and available to everyone. He joined them at Relleb as a co-founder, combining his two biggest passions – wristwatches and marketplaces.
