Orient CAPTAIN on a Nato Strap

This Orient CAPTAIN was a gift from my father. He is a watch-addict just like me. He gave me this watch (and the Volkswagen in the background) as a birthday gift. As a kid, I always wanted a good wrist watch but my father kept on saying no, because I used to get bored so easily with watches. But this time it’s quite different. This watch turned out to be my […]

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.

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?

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?
