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.

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.
