ABOUT

Let me start from beginning: My first "Watch-Expert" was my grandfather with his old pocket-watch. He fascinatet me with the tick of his little machine. After he died, this was for al long time my first watch. For all the other young boys it seems funny, to wear his watch on a chain. But I was proud about this privileged position.
In my career as a journalist - finally in the position of an an editor in chief - I was more and more drawn into this fascinating topic, I wrote hundreds of articles, visited every year the Baselworld an the SIHH, hold contact with watchmakers and managers and wrote three watch-books - about the Reverso, the Grande Complication and together with P. Coelho the image-book of IWC: "Engineering time".
I think, and therefore I like to work in the jury, watches, especially expensive watches, change their character and their purpose - into the direction of an work of art.
