ABOUT

My two passions are my professions: I am a tennis writer & tv/radio commentator since 1991 and a journalist on watches since 1995. I further developed a precocious childhood fascination for timepieces buying magazines and books in my travels around the world covering the tennis tour and it was only natural that I started writing about watches too.

I've been the editor of the portuguese magazine Espiral do Tempo since 1999, I write in english for WorldTempus plus I've been a member of the jury of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève and several other Watch of the Year awards. Joined the Watchstars jury following Thomas Wanka's invitation. I've had incredible experiences and anecdotes related to watches, I've been to fabulous places and met incredible people -- but I am most happy when tennis and watches coincide: in the tennis world, I'm the 'Watch Guy' and I've developped a special relationship with some stars precisely because they know I am an expert on the subject... whereas in the watch world I'm the 'Tennis Guy'!

Besides our Espiral do Tempo social media outlets (Facebook, Instagram), check out my Facebook page Miguel Seabra Tennis & Timepieces where I try to mix both subjects, while my Twitter @miguelseabra account is more about tennis and my Instagram @miguelseabra account is more about watches and wristshots.

I like all kinds and shapes of watches from every price bracket as long as they are well made, even though I tend to favor a bi-compax/date at 6 display on chronographs from the classic 1960s and the funky 1970s or prefer acoustic complications over tourbillons/perpetual calendars. I don't have a specific dream watch, but there are a few pieces I'd like to own. I'm not a watch snob: I'm as proud to wear a 1,250 euro timepiece as a 25,000 one... as long as it is cool and mechanical! And I am a complete strapaholic, always looking to dress my watches with the next strap or bracelet...
