Adrian Hailwood

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.
