Sotheby’s has recently reported Sam Hines as Worldwide Head of Watches. The position will be situated in Hong Kong. Hines began his vocation at Sotheby’s in 1997 preceding becoming the International Co-Head of Watches at Christie’s in 2013 and the International Head of Watches at Phillips in 2015 under Aurel Bacs . His takeoff from Phillips was a serious stun, and his best course of action was abundantly examined; presently it has been affirmed. Hines has had a lot of hit deals, including the Singing Bird Pistols that sold for $5.9 million , two obscure James Ward Packard pocket watches that sold for $2.7 million, and the Star Caliber 2000.
“The watch market is perhaps the most worldwide and quickest developing gathering classifications, and we are charmed to welcome Sam during this snapshot of huge freedom for Sotheby’s,” said Tad Smith, Sotheby’s CEO. “He joins an exceptional global watch group and, along with Laurence who goes along with us one month from now, will assume in vital part in propelling our strategies.”
Hines will be working under the recently designated head of Jewelry and Watch Division, Laurence Nicolas, (who as of late joined from Dior) and Daryn Schnipper , Chairman of the International Watch Division. You can peruse more on Sothebys.com .
