ABOUT

I do not remember what got into me in 1964 at the age of 17 years, to acquire the new Heuer "Carrera" chronograph for 311 Mark at that time. Anyway, the Christmas tip I got for my job as a paperboy was completely gone. But the purchase made me a happy man. And it motivated me to buy more mechanical watches, besides precision pendulum clocks. In view of the quartz revolution in the streets, the 1970s and early 1980s meant happiness to me. Eventually, I had several hundred ticking jewels for the wrist. However in the meantime I have sold a big part again. True to the motto: How many watches does a man need? He can only wear two at a time. In 1981 the wide-ranging watch collection led to the first article about watches, in 1983 to the first book called "Watches" and meanwhile I have written more than twenty books on the subject. My chronometric passion lasts now for 50 years already. And I do not feel that it is cooling down in any way.
