MEET THE THRIFTY GENTLEMAN
I have always been fascinated by watches. To me, it is an art form that mixes science, technology and workmanship with uniqueness, creativity and delightful beauty.
What I love the most is that anybody can participate in the hobby. My niche may be affordable watches, both bought and built, but I am equally happy talking about the Patek Philippes of this world.
I have made some great friends who are fortunate enough to own some of these elite watches, who in return love engaging in conversations with me about my more budget pieces. It truly is a great and inclusive family.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog and reading about my adventures in the world of watches and I look forward to sharing more with you in the future.
