New York auc­tion house Phillips has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Paul Boutros as Head of Amer­i­cas for Watches and the In­ter­na­tional Strat­egy Ad­vi­sor.

The Phillips Watch Depart­ment, cre­ated in Novem­ber 2014, is ded­i­cated ex­clu­sively to the world of fine col­lec­tors watches and is part­nered with the firm Bacs & Russo. Phillips Watches Depart­ment’s in­au­gu­ral year saw record-break­ing to­talling $80 mil­lion. A re­spected mem­ber of the watch com­mu­nity for many years, Mr. Boutros is a spe­cial­ist in the au­then­ti­ca­tion and val­u­a­tion of col­lectible wrist­watches, ad­vis­ing clients on ob­tain­ing in­vest­ment-grade watches and col­lec­tions. As the In­ter­na­tional Strat­egy Ad­vi­sor for Phillips in As­so­ci­a­tion with Bacs & Russo, Mr. Boutros will lead the com­pany’s tra­di­tional and dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing ef­forts while also help­ing guide the depart­ment’s strate­gic growth ini­tia­tives.

Aurel Bacs, Se­nior Con­sul­tant, said, “It has been a plea­sure to de­velop the Phillips Watches Depart­ment with Paul as our con­sul­tant in New York, and I couldn’t be hap­pier with his ap­point­ment as Head of Amer­i­cas. Paul Boutros per­fectly rep­re­sents the com­bi­na­tion of skills the Phillips Watches Depart­ment prides it­self on and the val­ues it stands for: pas­sion, schol­ar­ship, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, in­tegrity and a flaw­less rep­u­ta­tion within our com­mu­nity. We look for­ward to many ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments in the U.S. un­der Paul’s lead­er­ship, in­clud­ing auc­tions, ex­hi­bi­tions, val­u­a­tion days, and de­vel­op­ing our ever-grow­ing client base in the Amer­i­cas.”
