It was actually a Casio DataBank and I clearly remember I bought it because I found it cool to have my friends information on my wrist instead of having […]

Can you remember your first watch? My first watch ever was a transparent Swatch my grandmother bought me as a gift coming back from a business trip in Switzerland in the early 90’s.

To this day it remains […]

Do you remember your first watch, and how did your passion for watches start? Luke: I always had gift and budget watches growing up. It wasn’t until graduate school, that I started looking into nicer timepieces. With no prior horological knowledge, I would scour the jewelry shops in the mall admiring the beauty of different timepieces. I really became attracted to seeing the movements; the marriage of its internal aesthetic […]

Please introduce yourself My name is Ian and I’m from Toronto, Canada! I like to say I work as a sub-par manservant to my wife and a pretty good #WISdad to my kids.
