Advisory Team Members

Erik A. Jens

Financial Advisor

Erik has decades of experience within corporate and private banking focussing on luxury industries such as jewellery and art. He’s an impactful leader within organisations due to his strengths in strategic thinking and commercial acumen. This is shown with a strong track record in executing and delivering positive outcomes even in difficult situations. He’s passionate about applying technological solutions for a better world in the context of climate change especially in the arctics where he advises companies on using green power for green mining extraction and using laser techniques to subtract hydrogen and gas from coal layers without extraction of the coal layers. At the same time he continues making an impact through advisory roles within the luxury industries.

Rob Nudds

Industry Advisor

Rob started working in the watch industry for the Signet Group, aged 17. Following university, he undertook the WOSTEP course at the British School of Watchmaking, developing a keen interest in watchmaking theory. After graduating, he worked primarily for Omega and Bremont before leaving the bench in 2015 to become Head of Sales for NOMOS Glashütte in the UK. After three years of managing an international retail network that grew to encompass 17 countries, he began writing full-time.

Since then, he has written for a Blog to Watch, Fratello, Time & Tide, Grail Watch, SJX, Get Bezel, Borro Blog, Jomashop, Bob’s Watches, Skolorr, Oracle Time, WatchGecko, and Revolution USA.

He currently co-hosts The Real Time Show Podcast with his friend and long-time collaborator, Alon Ben Joseph of Ace Jewelers, Amsterdam, as well as working with several brands as a consultant in the fields of brand building, product development, global retail strategy, and communications.
