A former Watch Dealer, life-long enthusiast and admirer of fine historical objects with an eye for something special.
I have been in and around this industry since 1975 and have an internationally admired track record and reputation. If you've dealt with me in the past, then you already know...
These days I spend my time producing educational videos for watch enthusiasts as a journalist, advisor and an anti-watch crime campaigner.
Despite being retired from the retail watch business, every now and then something comes along that I just cannot resist. As a life-long enthusiast I've never found a cure for watch disease!
I have many well known and trusted associates within the business that can supply the very best watches available. These have been carefully chosen and are among some of the most trusted watch dealers in the United Kingdom.
I am available as a specialist consultant to the watch industry, to law enforcement agencies around the World and also as a personal negotiator for those who require an experienced buyer to assist secure their chosen item at the right price.
I'm also able to assist you successfully build your watch investment portfolio and available to the media for interviews relating to the watch industry.
I am very proud to have assisted various Police forces around the UK with their watch related criminal investigations. In December 2020 an independent study estimated that my advice was responsible for saving watch buyers & sellers more than £1 million during 2020 that would otherwise have been lost to criminals.
