Chrono Hunter Founders

Sam Rayner
Co CEO & Founder

Sam is one of the founders and focused on driving Chrono Hunter to become the number one place for watch lovers to buy and sell. 

"Our focus is on customer service and ensuring that above everything we're providing people with a safe place to transact high-value timepieces whilst also ensuring they're getting a fair price.

I've been interested in luxury watches from a personal level for many years and experienced some difficulties in that time when trying to use the methods that were available. This led Max and me who I've known for years through our circle of friends to sit down and come up with the idea of Chrono Hunter. 3 years later, with over £10 Million pounds worth of watches transacted and 400 5 star reviews, I think we're on to something..."

The first watch I really loved was a steel Rolex Daytona with a black face. Although Daytonas are classics this particular model was quite tricky to find. It's now worth nearly twice what I paid for it, but then I'd never sell it.

Working in the property industry I found there's a real love for watches and my Daytona sparked many conversations. I soon got to know the watches people wanted and, using my knowledge, began buying and selling. In doing so, I encountered the issues with traditional watch selling websites and so built up a network of contacts with the best luxury watch retailers in the UK and Europe. And so the idea behind Chrono Hunter was born!

My business partner Sam shares the same love for watches. Together I knew we could come up with a better value and more efficient way of putting buyers in touch with the best luxury watch retailers.

My interest in watches began quite literally with a blast, with nine year old me loudly watching a VHS copy of the classic 1995 James Bond movie, Goldeneye. In the film, Bond uses his Q-Branch issued Omega Seamaster Professional, ref 2541.80 to (spoilers) laser his way out of an exploding train, remotely set detonators that blow up the hidden satellite facility, and one up the baddie’s wristgame with the “new model”. It played such an iconic part in the plot, that it grew my interest to discover more about other luxury brands and models. I joined Chrono Hunter in 2018, having spent the best part of a decade honing my customer service and selling skills in the world of retail. Prior to my current role, I previously worked at Europe's leading pre-owned luxury watch specialist. I want to share with our customers and retail partners alike, my knowledge and passion for luxury watches, so that everyone has the opportunity to buy and sell safely and confidently at a fair price.

Niam Chandaria
Social Media Manager

As a young boy, whenever my family and I travelled, we always took pictures...


Outside my role as Social Media and Content Manager, you can regularly find me following my passion for automotive and landscape photography, and my first ‘proper’ watch was a Tag Heuer Formula 1 McLaren Limited Edition.


My interest and love for watches has come a long way since my school and college days, and when the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight was released at Baselworld 2018, I knew I had to add to my growing collection.


Having spent almost my entire lifetime taking photos, I really enjoy the engagement and challenges that handling the media and photography portfolio for Chrono Hunter brings.
