ABOUT

I fell in love with Franck Muller Casablanca in 2000 and cant't stop loving watches ever since. In 2004 I quit writing about travel and started as a staff writer in AU Russia; in 2010 the position of chief editor happened to become mine.
The proposal to join the Jury came from Gisbert Brunner and Thomas Wanka - two great guys and brilliant experts you just can't refuse.
As mentioned above, the first coveted watch was Casablanca which I actually never bought. Then for some period I was dreamng about TAG Heuer Monaco (which is in my collection since recently), but the first serious piece of chronometry was Corum Bubble GMT with blue dial in 2006. It seemed perfect and mesmerizing to me then.
I'm not sure if I have one favorite brand, but if I had to answer this question, I would probably name Panerai. Or, maybe De Bethune. Or Jaeger-LeCoultre... Well, they are all fantastic!
For me watches are like women: the more you deal with them the less you seem to know about them. It's all about great passion which is hard to describe in simple words.
