What was your introduction to horology?

In any real sense, it was Swatch. Yep, the plastic quartz, the Swiss watch industries answer to the watch crisis. I still collect them to this day and i have, let us say, an unreasonable number of them.

What was your first watch?

As a kid, a Swatch watch. As an adult, an Omega Seamaster 300 blue wave dial. I still own both.

What fascinates you most about watches and/or horology in general?

The intricacy and shapes.

What are the kiss, kill, and marry of your collection?

Kiss: Omega Alaska Project

Kill: Hamilton Pulsomatic

Marry: Omega PloProf

Name one watch that got away.

Omega Speedmaster Apollo - Soyuz 1975

What watch do you wear most often?

Truthfully, an Apple Watch Edition series 3. I double wrist everyday, and my left wrist always has that on it; the right wrist always changes. Love them, or loath them, it's damn well made and very useful.

What is the first thing you notice about a watch?

If it has been cared for.

How were you introduced to RedBar Group?

Instagram

How has RedBar affected you as a collector?

It’s made me worse. I keep being introduced to things I want.

Outside of collecting how has RedBar impacted your life?

Socially. I have people I call true friends. It crosses social divides.
