The firm will also launch the world’s first online Fractionalised Auction of investment-grade fine timepieces in April, as well as a Watch Museum displaying over 200 ultra-rare vintage Patek Philippe and other historical timepieces from the 19th and 20th centuries.
FutureGrail was started by renowned watch collector and investor Ali Nael and business partner Mohsin Rizvi.

They will pioneer the world’s first all-online auction of high-end timepieces with both traditional and on-chain fractionalised watches. (See Appendix 1 for more details on fractionalised auctions.)
FutureGrail is proud to unveil its highly anticipated Watch Museum, featuring one of the world’s rarest collections of watches and artefacts. Housing over 200 rare and historically significant timepieces dating back to the early 1800’s, the Museum offers a unique opportunity to explore the fascinating history and evolution of high-end watches. The exhibit is open to the public by appointment, providing visitors with an immersive and luxurious setting to inspire and deepen their knowledge of horology. In addition to the permanent display, the Museum and gallery will also host thematic exhibitions and regular events for watch collectors, connoisseurs, and businesses.
FutureGrail’s headquarters also includes a tax-free storage facility, designed to accommodate and safeguard the world’s rarest collections. The vault’s value-added services cater to the needs of collectors and investors at every stage of their collecting journey, from acquisition to exit. FutureGrail’s facility boasts unparalleled security measures provided by both FutureGrail and global security experts Malca-Amit. Clients can rest assured that their collections are in safe hands with round-the-clock surveillance, advanced access controls, and full insurance coverage.
