Sofield told WatchPro: “I am moving out of watches, which is a little sad, and I am obviously very sad to be leaving Fraser Hart as I have loved my role here and of course my team”.

“It was a huge decision to make, but I am now looking forward to the next challenge and Swarovski is a huge international company with lots of opportunity so although a little nervous, I am also very excited!”

Fraser Hart is believed to be in process of recruiting for luxury watch buyer and head of buying roles.
