The becoming of Acionna from Lew & Huey Watch Company

The becoming of Acionna from Lew & Huey Watch Company

I had a little bit of “writer’s block” coming up with the follow-up to the Riccardo. I had a lot of vague ideas, but couldn’t bring them together into one cohesive design. I was looking at dual-crown, “compressor” style diving watches like the Longines Legend Diver, also watches with odd-shaped or angular cases, like the Stowa Seatime, and some diving watches from the ’70’s, but also thinking about what would […]

Rolex GMT-Master II Ceramic

Rolex GMT-Master II Ceramic

Well my WristTale about my Rolex GMT-Master II Ceramic. I am just in the mid 20’s and I already bought my first Rolex. Why you might ask, maybe because it is a status symbol? The answer is no.  It is sad that many people have that opinion about Rolex watches. They think it’s mostly gold and full of diamonds, without taste, only expensive, only status! Since I am interested in mechanical watches, the Air-King of my […]

WRISTPORN: Who are the people behind BulBul? I am the sole owner of Bulbul, but work closely with Danish design super-group KiBiSi WRISTPORN: Why create a watch and not another product?

This is my Casio Diver MDV-106

This is my Casio Diver MDV-106

I really love the classy Casio diver look and for its inexpensive price tag, it seems to be pretty rare from where i come from. The best part is, my friend and i were just talking about it the other day, like any other random topic of our conversations, and at that moment we happened to be passing by a watch shop specializing in Casios, and WHOA, it was sitting right there at the end […]

Rolex GMT from the early 1980’s

Rolex GMT from the early 1980’s

I recently crossed the Pacific to attend a three day conference.  I decided to take a few days ahead of the meeting to acclimatize with the weather, more so with the time difference to my Circadian rhythm.  I had the pleasure to spend time with my brothers in that part of the west coast.  Best of time spent together meant visiting their favorite watch dealer!  All I wanted then was an “old” Rolex.

Vintage Omega Seamaster

Vintage Omega Seamaster

This is my first mechanical watch.  It is a vintage Omega Seamaster from the 1950’s.  It came from an antique shop.  It was love at first sight!  Unfortunately when I found it, it was on the wrist of someone.  I had to coerce him to sell it to me (you can imagine the energy of the series of conversations between us)!  Eventually I got the deal!  It has been more […]
