ABOUT

The tradition of watches in Spain is as remarkable as our track record in cricket, so I have no qualms admitting that I began writing about watches by chance. Indeed, I was almost thirty the first time I wore a mechanical watch: a beautiful Junghans Max Bill that I still have.
But it's OK. As Jean-Claude Biver said in the last Baselworld, watchmaking is a question of love. I believe that too. For me, love is a combination of goodwill and serendipity, where everything boils down to choice and being chosen.
I chose to work as a watchmaking journalist. The first time I encountered this industry, I was made privy to a tiny and elegant world. Beauty and relationships worked hand in hand; much like the rural idyll I hope to one day live in.
As for being chosen, I have no complains. I have been writing about watches for fifteen years, the last five as freelance. My current list of collaborations includes several magazines from Spain (Fuera de Serie, Esquire, Robb Report, Dapper and Excelente) and México (Tiempo de Relojes).
Being part of this distinguished Watchstars Jury is testament to the fact that I am not doing such a bad job. Well, at least I don't think I am.
