Fossner, who has appeared on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow and is an accredited Gemological Institute of America (GIA) jewelry professional, previously served as consignment director at Heritage Auctions in New York.

A fifth-generation watch specialist, Fossner trained in his father’s business, New York’s J & P Timepieces.
