With 25 years of experience in 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 Adrian.
In 2011, he swapped retail for auctions, working at Fellows in Birmingham building their watch auctions into a successful operation, subsequently moving to Woolley & Wallis saleroom in Salisbury.
In 2017 Adrian set up as an independent specialist providing watch expertise across the auction, insurance and asset-lending industries, also consulting privately for clients wishing to buy or sell watches.
He writes on watches for a number of online and print publications and is the writer and co-presenter of the ‘Fake Franken & Custom Watch’ course, at the Birmingham Assay Office.
Adrian has 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.
在钟表和珠宝行业各大巨头如卡地亚、梵克雅宝、Mappin & Webb和宝玑等从业超过二十五载，钟表一直是Adrian的热爱和职业追求。
2011年起，Adrian从零售业转到了拍卖领域，期间曾任职于伯明翰专门从事钟表拍卖的公司Fellows，之后转至Woolley & Wallis。2017年起，Adrian作为一位独立的钟表专家一直为拍卖、保险和艺术品股价提供专业的咨询意见，并协助客户进行名表的私人洽购。
Adrian对钟表有着极大的热情，视其为社会历史的结晶和人类文明发展中不可缺少的一部分。除了在商业上的成功，Adrian也为各大在线和纸媒撰写有关钟表收藏的专栏，同时他也是伯明翰《Fake Franken & Custom Watch》课程的主讲人。
