Talking Watches With William Massena

It was when he was chief operating officer of Antiquorum that I first met William – introduced by a mutual friend – and to say I was intimidated would be an understatement. This imposing, well-educated, bi-lingual true connoisseur had built quite a reputation for himself as the enforcer of Timezone – almost the true-life watch […]

Talking Watches With Jeff Stein

There aren’t too many people in the watch world like Jeff Stein. Sure, there are true lovers of a single category – but few dedicate so much passion, so much energy, and so much time to any one single type of watch, and have done so for so many years and with as much vigor […]
