Spink to Launch Specialist Watch Department in Hong Kong Dec 05 2013


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.

Dominic

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.
