Specialist at Phillips Watches department

A passion for watches which began in his early teens led Alexandre Ghotbi to become a pioneer in online discussion forums, first by co-founding « The Purists » in 2001 (now PuristsPro) followed by « The Hour Lounge » the Vacheron Constantin discussion forum in 2007. In 2008, he turned his passion for watches into his profession when he left his career as a finance lawyer in Paris to become the Head of Vacheron Constantin’s Social Media and Community Management. Alexandre joined the Phillips Watches Geneva team in April 2016 as Specialist and Associate Director. He is a member of the Cultural Council of the Fondation de Haute Horlogerie, and an author of numerous books and articles on horology.
