Q: How did you get into watch collecting?

One day I realised I didnโ€™t have a realy good watch, and one of my interests is Project Apollo. After some research I found out the Apollo astronauts wore the Omega Speedmaster Professional on the moon, so I got one. Since then Iโ€™ve had an interest in watches.

Q: Do you have a watch with a particularly interesting story behind it?

My Omega Speedmaster Professional for obvious reasons. My DIY Watch Club Mosel I built myself. The quartz movement in my Longines Conquest V.H.P. Is based on the technology Longines used to time land speed and water speed record attempts.

Q: What is one piece of advice you have for someone just getting into watches?

Reasearch, reasearch and more reasearch.

Q: What brands have been getting your attention lately?

Christopher Ward.

Q: What is your grail watch and why?

Grand Seiko Kodo. I love the skeleton movement and the constant force toubillon.
