HI! MY NAME IS ANTHONY

I'm a Swiss, Rolex, Breitling, Omega, and Jaegar Le-Coultre trained Horologist. I make Watchmaking fun to learn and simple to understand. I'm of the firm belief that less is more.

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." 
- ALBERT EINSTEIN

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I've worked on watches since I was 12 years old. (Talk about childhood...)

I apprenticed under a master watchmaker at the time and boy did I hate it. I literally hated it. If you expected to read a story about a young kid who loved horology and devoted his whole life to it, look elsewhere. You are not finding that shit here.

I had no childhood.

I woke up at 5:30AM every day to work on watches, went to school by 8AM, went home, went back to watches till dinner, sleep, rinse, and repeat. Others may say I'm lucky to have had the opportunity, sure. I hated it though at the time because I was a kid. All my friends woke up late as shit and watched cartoons and played outside. I had to sit on a bench from morning to night. I don't know about you but that definitely doesn't sound like fun at all to a 12 year old....

I'M NOT GOING TO ROMANTICIZE WATCHMAKING

I tell you all of this so that you can understand where I'm coming from when you read my work. I'm not going to romanticize watchmaking. I'm going to tell you as it is.

I love and respect the shit out of it now but I'm not going to bore you with some romantic flowery language. 

I've managed to convince myself that because I hated watchmaking at one point and respect the hell out of it now, i'm pretty fair and balanced in my views.

So without further ado, sit tight and enjoy the show...
