When did your interest in watches begin?
When I was six years old, my dad bought me a Mickey Mouse watch; Mickey’s hands indicated the time. I remember it being my first significant personal gift and it really meant a lot to me.
How did your interest develop?
During my teen years, my interest in timepieces grew stronger, particularly for products that encapsulated strong values. When I started backpacking, travelling and living in different places around the world, watches became an obvious interest.
