James Marks - Men's Style Council Member

After two decades in the finance industry as a fund manager, Mr James Marks turned his horological hobby into a career by joining the watch department of auction house Phillips. He helms the company’s Perpetual platform, an innovative private sales boutique that has opened vintage and rare watches to a new generation of buyers and collectors. Mr Marks is also passionate about cars and when he’s not handling the finest luxury watches, you’ll find him enjoying his Porsche 993 Carrera 4.

  • FAVOURITE CITY

    London will always be my favourite city for it’s culture, style and diversity.

  • SUIT

    Thom Sweeney, always has and always will. I have so enjoyed watching this brand growing.

  • WATCH

    I really like to mix my watches depending on my mood or diary. Rolex remains the brand of choice by day. An independent for formal events, or Audermars Piguet for holiday. More and more though, I love the work of Lange.

  • BAG

    Rucksack by Bennett Winch. I'm sure it's bullet proof and the patina holds many memories.

  • GREAT AMBITION

    Racing in the Goodwood Revival in my 1965 SWB.

  • FILM

    Dark Knight Rises.
