ABOUT

My fascination with watches started when I was 16 or 17 years old. At this time I bought a first vintage watch - which of course had a mechanical movement. It deeply impressed me, that after so many years it still worked properly. Now I wanted to know more about wristwatches and read several books on the subject.
In 2010 my editor in chief at FOCUS Newsmagazine – where I have written about financial markets since 1999 – offered me to cover the watch-topic as well. I accepted happily and started immediately to visit watch fares and to talk to helpful experienced watch-journalists. Since then I have been responsible for all FOCUS-special-issues on timepieces („Uhren Special“) and am writing regulary about watches in FOCUS.
