In the eighties, when my love for watches shifted from just an interest into an obsession, my friends and family knew me as a one brand guy. And, perhaps, many still do.
I followed the watch industry closely, almost on a daily basis, but when it came to adding something to my own personal collection, I always came down to my first love in watchmaking: Cartier.
A habit that more guys have and that we see not only in the world of watches, but also with cameras and even with cars.
While my Cartier collection really gives me loads of pleasure every day and is part of my personality, I felt a strong need to one day own something completely different.
Something that was the opposite of what I am wearing daily. Something new, less traditional and maybe more exotic and if possible, from a new generation brand.
