Phillips Watches appoints Paul Boutros as Head of Americas and International Strategy Advisor
Earlier in his career, Mr. Boutros held Engineering, Product Development, and Marketing and Business Development positions at advanced technology firms.


NEW YORK, NY.- Phillips announced the appointment of Paul Boutros as Head of Americas for Watches and the International Strategy Advisor for Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo. Joining the auction house in 2016 and based in New York, Mr. Boutros’s appointment follows his support as a consultant, where he was instrumental in establishing the department. His initiatives directly contributed to the record-breaking results of the Phillips Watches Department’s inaugural year in 2015, during which it achieved over $80 million in sales. 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.”

In his spare time, Mr. Boutros writes about the world of watches, promoting the timeless appeal of luxury mechanical watches. Appearing on television programs to share tips on vintage watch collecting, he frequently participates in talks for luxury brands and publications, leading discussions on the art of watch collecting.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Boutros held Engineering, Product Development, and Marketing and Business Development positions at advanced technology firms. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Rutgers University and received a master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
