Chrono24 has closed a Series C financing round with a volume of over 100 million euros with the participation of new investors and existing shareholders. The Series C financing round was based on a valuation of more than one billion US dollars, thus making Chrono24 a "unicorn". A team from the international law firm Taylor Wessing, led by Hamburg-based partner Jens Wolf, advised Chrono24 - same as in previous financing rounds - on all legal matters related to the Series C financing round.
Among the investors in the Series C financing round are new investors General Atlantic, a leading global venture capital firm, and Aglaé Ventures, the technology arm of the Arnault family’s investment company, as well as the existing shareholders Insight Partners and Sprints Capital.
Chrono24 is a leading global online marketplace for luxury watches, currently employs around 400 people internationally and reaches over 9 million unique visitors per month in more than 100 countries.
The majority of the funds raised in the Series C financing round will be invested in the further growth and internationalization of Chrono24.
