Global watch auction house Antiquorum Auctioneers has appointed Charles Tearle as a horological consultant, working with its New York and Hong Kong teams.
Seeking to grow Antiquorum’s business in the US and Asia, Tearle will focus on sourcing and bringing to market rare and exceptional timepieces, and personally specialises in watches from the 1920s and 1970s.
With a background that has seen him work at Somlo Antiques and for various leading auction houses, Tearle has also previously held the role of Director & Watch Expert at Antiquorum, which led to him running the watch departments in New York and Hong Kong in 2008, before becoming an independent broker and consultant for private clients.
His opinions are regularly sought for TV programs and watch, business and lifestyle publications including The Telegraph, The Financial Times and GQ.
Evan Zimmermann, president and CEO of Antiquorum, said: “With over twenty years of experience in the watch industry encompassing retail and auction platforms, Charles Tearle brings with him a wealth of knowledge to his new position as horological consultant to Antiquorum. We are delighted that Charles is re-joining the Antiquorum team and look forward to expanding our presence on the west coast and continuing to offer our clients unparalleled expertise and customer service.”
