Having met Giles once, at a meeting of watch enthusiasts I had no hesitation in buying a Rolex Triple Six Sea Dweller soon after, without even seeing the watch ‘in the metal’.

His passion, knowledge, and enthusiasm has since led me to enlist him in sourcing a Rolex Air-King for my wife, and he also assisted her in sourcing a birth year Rolex OysterDate as a 40th birthday present, for me.

I consider Giles a friend and ’trusted advisor’ in my watch endeavours.
