I have too many!

I discovered my interest in watches at a very young age. I used to have a job like anyone else, but in 2004, I decided to start a career as a freelance watch journalist. I've been the editor in chief of the watch magazine "Chronos Japan" since 2017. My main passion is the history and development of automatic movements, but I also write about interesting news from the industry, as well as Japanese watchmaking history. Chrono24 is my favorite platform, and I recently purchased a Sinn 244 in fantastic condition from a Chrono24 seller in Austria.
