Interesting seeing Jack as 'mini gauntlet watch man'!

Even more interesting hearing Andrew admitt, as a purist,

that return of investment is part of the collecting!

Thanks Alex for a fine interview that was short but straight.



Interesting. . .

watching, thank you Alex. I was pleased to hear the comment about new materials, improvements that do NOT replace the heart of watchmaking, only make it Better!  No one wants to go the way of Blockbuster. 

Best to all,


Precision, Accuracy, Robustness, Reliability

Mr. Forster cites these as the qualities of 50s and 60s watches, but they bloody well should be the qualities of new timepieces too!  I instantly connected with Mr. Jacobs cars to watches progression as well.  Definately worth 9 minutes out of the day cheeky.
