About Us


Founded by fellow watch evangelists David Holloway and Sam Beer, Triple Crown buy, sell and exchange some of the finest watches in the world.

A shared passion for sport was the inspiration for the name Triple Crown as David and Sam see the same esteemed sporting qualities of excellence, distinction and prestige in their own carefully curated collectibles.

Business-savvy David founded his first successful enterprise when he was just 25 and is now the London based CEO of Marlin Hawk and Winter Circle. It’s this determined entrepreneurship, alongside a passion for watches, that he brings to Triple Crown. David has long been a collector of watches and pens, and has coveted both since he inherited a cherished pen and watch from his father as a young boy. With his love of ingenuity and perfection, watchmaking also fascinates him for its skill, artistry and craftsmanship.

It was through trading at Watchfinder, one of the global industry leaders, that David met Sam Beer, Triple Crown’s co-founder and CEO. As head of purchasing, Sam played a key role in leading Watchfinder to the eventual acquisition by luxury goods giant Richemont. His senior management acumen meant he was key to the integration process, and he brings a dynamism, encyclopaedic knowledge of watches and unparalleled network of clients and suppliers to Triple Crown.
