About Me


With 25 years of experience within the watch and jewellery industry working for companies such as Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels, Mappin & Webb and seven years as Boutique Manager for Breguet, watches have been both a career and a passion for me. In 2011, I left the retail world to work in the world of watch auctions, holding senior positions at Fellows, Woolley & Wallis and Dreweatts.


In 2017 I set up as an independent specialist providing watch expertise across the auction, insurance and asset-lending industries.


I also consult privately for clients wishing to buy or sell watches and for those wishing to understand the value of watches they own.


With a background in luxury retail and having worked discretely with private High-Net-Worth clients, I pride myself on the highest level of customer service. This, combined with an infectious enthusiasm for watches at all points of the price spectrum, allows me to help and advise you, whatever your watch requirements.

Watch Consultant

I have had a lifelong fascination with watches, seeing them as artefacts of social history intrigued by context as much as mechanisms and enjoying the heroic failures along with the enduring successes. When not sourcing or valuing watches, I write on the subject for a variety of print and online publications.
