Do you remember your first watch, and how did your passion for watches start?
I remember it like it was now. My first watch was my father’s watch that I manage to de-assemble at the age of 10. I had to de-assemble it because I was wearing it even if it was not working and whoever asked me what’s the time I couldn’t answer them because it was not functional. It was a gold Orex watch, the first wristwatch ever produced in Romania.
You are a trained watchmaker, how did you get into the watch business?
Well, I am not quite properly trained in schools, but I made a sort of traineeships in the watchmaking industry at some famous Swisswatch brands where I had learn also how to assemble watches as well as the logistical part of a timepiece manufacturing company.
