“My first watch is a vintage gold Movado dress watch from the 1940’s. It had a place with my incredible granddad, who passed it down to my granddad, who offered it to me for my Bar Mitzvah. My granddad was additionally an architect, which has always given me an appreciation for mechanical articles. I’ve always been an authority (my essential indecencies being records and shoes), as well.”
“Falling into watches, at that point, was simple. I began perusing HODINKEE around three years prior, and I’ve always appreciated that the writers and community have been relatable in any event, when covering pieces a long ways too far in the red – call it ‘peer aspirationalism.’ Next up on my rundown: the Nomos Tangomat GMT and a 39 mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual for my upcoming 30th birthday celebration. My chalice watch: a Patek Philippe reference 3417 Amagnetic.”
