Watch our chat with James Marks tonight on Classic Driver Live

We’re delighted that James Marks will be joining our host J. Philip Rathgen for tonight’s instalment of Classic Driver Live. The former hedge fund manager today heads Phillips’ Perpetual private sales boutique in London and it’s fair to say he’s learned a thing or two about collecting over the years

It’s been almost two years since James Marks turned his back on the trading floor and joined Phillips, charged with expanding the auction house’s watch department in London. Perpetual, an intimate boutique space in Phillips’ Berkeley Square HQ dedicated to the discreet trade of the world’s finest timepieces was the result and today, James’ exciting new arm is thriving – you only have to glance at Phillips Perpetual’s incredible inventory of watches in the Classic Driver Market to realise that. James will be chatting with our host J. Philip Rathgen about the art of collecting, the difference between the watch and the car markets, London as a collectors' hub and his passion for cigars. Oh, and the merits of the 993-generation Porsche 911. Tune in tonight on our Instagram channel at 7pm CET/6pm BST.
