Dear Fellow Watch Nerds (Aficionados, Collectors, etc...)

If you have just found the Watch Hunter Blog, then I would like to welcome you to my labor or love. If you are a long time reader, then I hope you like the new web site. I decided to finally get serious and put all my thoughts onto a professional blog platform. You will notice that it is easier to get to any review, find articles and view larger images. The site has been optimized for modern browsers from computers, tablets, and mobile devices.

Because we are friends, I should share my reason for starting this blog and collecting watches. My father told me “Do what inspires you and do it the best that you can.”  I took those words to heart and have tried to live by them no matter what endeavor I am attempting. I am inspired by many things that magically weave themselves together into the vast landscape of collecting watches including inventors, history, tradition, technology, design, fashion, finances, marketing, and even loftier concepts like the meaning of time. Enjoy the site and subscribe to get notifications of new articles. Enjoy!

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
