Chrono24 is continuing to expand as one of the most prominent online watch retail platforms in the world. A key part in that growth has been the onboarding of several key investors from across the spectrum of sporting superstars. Last year Cristiano Ronaldo became an investor and today it has been announced that F1 racer Charles Leclerc is a Chrono24 investor too.

Leclerc is no stranger to the world of wristwatches, being an ambassador for Richard Mille through his connection to them via Ferrari. His investment into Chrono24 (for an undisclosed amount) is a joint venture with his brother Lorenzo, with whom Charles consults on the majority of his entrepreneurial endeavours.

“We are extremely proud to welcome Charles and Lorenzo into our Chrono24 adventure,” comments Chrono24 CEO Carsten Keller. “These brothers are highly esteemed and share our passion for watches as well as our company’s drive for excellence. Their savvy is formidable, and together, we are poised to reach new heights.”

According to the data from Chrono24, where people can input and track the value of their watch collections, their users own more than 3.7million watches with a combined value of $50 billion, around 8% of the total value of all watches on Earth. It makes them one of the largest watch selling platforms in the world and with increasing interest from celebrity investors, that trend looks set to continue.
