Explanation

Even if you do not know the words philately and numismatist, the clue is new hobby, with yet additional information provided by the opposite-direction time trigger had already become and associated clue expert. Therefore, the blank must mean something like amateur.

None of philanderer, mentor, specialist, or eccentric means amateur, so eliminate choices (B), (C), (D), and (E). Dilettante means amateur, so select choice (A).

Hence option A is correct!
