RAPAPORT... Christie’s has appointed Antiques Roadshow watch expert Michael Fossner to lead its west coast watch department.

The auctioneer has charged Fossner with leading appraisals while guiding and growing the company in the region. He is also expected to work with colleagues in New York and internationally to win new business and bring key pieces to market.

Fossner, who has appeared on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow and is an accredited Gemological Institute of America (GIA) jewelry professional, previously served as consignment director at Heritage Auctions in New York.

A fifth-generation watch specialist, Fossner trained in his father’s business, New York’s J & P Timepieces.
