luxury watch sales. He then worked for over a decade as an independent estate
timepiece broker/specialist dealing both in wholesale and internet retail sales
of pre-owned and vintage luxury timepieces, before returning to manage Wanna

Chrono 24 and 1st Dibs. An active 15-year member of IWJG, he frequently attends
