Q: How did you get into watch collecting?

Maternal grandmother bought me my first watch and held it to my ear at the age of four. I remember in that silence the tranquil tick. โŒš were always beautiful to me, but I had waning interest in them until I began to study engineering. โŒš, not unlike ๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ, have designs implementing careful thought about material, manufacturing, and mechanics. Therefore, mechanisms and complications are the highest priority for me.

Q: What was the first watch you ever owned?

Mickey Mouse Quartz โŒš

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

Not yet.

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

Avoid โŒš. โŒš are a compulsive illness worse than a gambling addiction. Otherwise, do not be married to one manufacturer but try to get a quality timepiece to experience a well-made โŒš before buying micro brands and cheaper โŒš. Micro brands are find but not a good starting point. No perfect place to start, but Seiko has a broad catalog that is a decent place to start from below $500 through $5000+ with a variety of complications and materials.

Q: What brands have been getting your attention lately?

San Martin, L.U. Chopard, Longines, Grand Seiko, Zenith, Glashรผtte Original

Q: What is your grail watch and why?

No such thing as a grail โŒš. Less about the end point and more about the journey. That said. . .A. Lange & Sรถhne Triple Split Chronograph, Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris World Time Chronograph, Jaeger-LeCoultre 18K Reverso Duoface Chronograph, Glashรผtte Original Senator Cosmopolite, L.U. Chopard L.U.C TIME TRAVELER ONE BLACK 42 MM, AUTOMATIC, CERAMISED TITANIUM REF. NUMBER:168574-3008, among others. Why? Life is complicated, as is the time we spend to experience it. Hence, complicating visualization of time is only natural. . . .๐Ÿ˜‰
