Meet the Team

David

Sales
I will be celebrating my 10 year anniversary of working at BQ Watches in a few weeks.

Having worked here for so long, I have numerous roles in the office, my main one being in sales. I never appreciated watches before I started working here but now I am hooked!

I’m an avid Manchester United supporter and I’m missing watching them play live. Playing tennis outdoors is my favourite pastime, but given the unpredictable UK weather that doesn’t happen as often as I would like!

Spencer

Founder & Owner
I have been in the watch and jewellery industry for more than 30 years. Watches are my passion and I enjoy nothing more than discussing the merits of luxury timepieces with whoever is happy to listen!

I established BQ Watches because I believe that my knowledge and understanding of the world of watches would give buyers and sellers respectively an unrivalled experience, and consequently our clients always compliment us on our professional yet personal service.

Aside from watches, I have a fondness for fast cars, bikes and jet skis. I also love skiing, the outdoor life and spending time with my family.

In the words of Mark Twain “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life” and in founding BQ Watches that’s exactly what I’ve done!

I have been working at BQ Watches for 11 Years. I have learned a lot about watches and I’m amazed how much the watch industry has changed since i first started.

I am married with two children and outside of work there is nothing I like more than spending time with my family.

Claire

Repairs & Sales
I have worked at BQ Watches for 12 years.

My roles include pricing, repairs and advising customers.

The watch industry has grown enormously since I first started and I wish I would have invested in a few more Rolexes over the years!

I will not succumb to Rina’s healthy pasta!

Steph

Repairs & Servicing
I have worked at BQ Watches for 3 years.

I mostly deal with repairs and servicing, so I have picked up a lot of product knowledge during my time here.

My favourite watch is a rose gold Rolex Daytona but all my spare income goes towards my horse Fynn who I see daily. I also have 2 chihuahuas that keep me busy in my spare time.

Andy

Watchmaker
I have worked with Spencer since 1994.

I trained as a watch maker straight from school and am responsible for authenticating all the watches as well as servicing and repairs. My passion for watches is still as strong as ever and I enjoy the variety of my work.

I love travelling and experiencing different cultures and especially enjoy trying the local cuisines.

Acquisitions
I am a sales administrator at BQ Watches, I started on the 29th June 2020 and I have loved working here. It is very different to anything I have done before. I learn something new every day.

In my spare time I like to spend money on things I don’t need and going for dinner. I love an espresso martini and a burger!

I have 4 younger siblings, 2 sisters and 2 brothers who live in Devon with my mum, I try and visit them as much as I can.

Acquisitions
I’ve been in the jewellery industry for over twelve years.

I’ve travelled the world selling high end jewellery and had a lot of fun trying on tiara’s and 5ct diamonds but I’ve come to realise that watches are the new jewellery.

My weekends are spent playing with my babies and eating. I’m a massive foodie.

I am excited to be a new member of the BQ Watches team and looking forward to learning a different side of the trade.

Ilda

Acquisitions
I have worked at BQ Watches for a few years now and I mainly arrange payment for the watches we buy in.

I’m originally from Italy, so I am very familiar with being surrounded by luxury brands.

Thanks to my mother, I love good food and wine and am also very interested in fashion.

On my weekends, I am always interested in finding new places to explore around London.

Accounts
I joined BQ Watches after a fifteen year career in fashion retailing where I was the international buying manager for a luxury shoe chain.

When not in St John’s Wood, I can often be found in Paris or Milan spotting the latest trends. My focus has now moved from high end footwear to luxury wristwear.

I live in Radlett with my husband and young son.

Working for BQ Watches was my first job and I love the atmosphere in the office; the phone never stops ringing and I love the buzz of the place.

In my spare time I love socialising and going to the gym.
