Spink is proud to announce the launch of our new Watch Department
in Hong Kong. It will be headed by leading Watch Expert Dominic
Khoo, who we are delighted to have join us after many notable years
in the industry.
After an award-winning career as a professional photographer,
Dominic returned to the watch industry, his first love, working in
brand management for the world's biggest Girard-Perregaux
distributor. He later became a watch journalist writing for many of
the world's top watch magazines, including Revolution magazine's
very first issue. He eventually took on contributing editor,
editorial director, editor-in-chief and shareholder roles for
various magazines such as Prestige's, Tic Talk, Real Time, and the
world's first online luxury magazine Goldarths.com.
In 2006 he trained as a watch
expert, and under the watchful eyes of world famous watch experts
Osvaldo Patrizzi and Etienne Lemanager, Dominic spent several
periods of the year in Geneva, Hong Kong and Shanghai, appraising
and authenticating watches for international clients and auctions.
He even had a chance on the hammer, successfully auctioning off a
watch at more than six times the starting price in Shanghai.
It was no ordinary watch; it was the first production piece in the
Omega Iris collection and the watch was worn by none other than the
lady standing next to him on stage - Nicole Kidman.
A prolific watch collector and investor himself, Dominic has been
featured on several television shows on luxury including Cool and
Collected on Channel 5, and Front, a popular arts show aired on TV
and TV mobile in June 2007. A seasoned public speaker, he has
helped organise watch events and personally given talks for
companies such as The Hour Glass, UBS and Hermes.
We are delighted to have Dominic on board to lead Spink into such
a fashionable, prosperous field.
