I would call myself a typical watch aficionado. But, I had the opportunity to turn my hobby into my profession. This was more than 25 years ago … www.watchadvisor.com gives you the opportunity to follow my work when I travel to Switzerland, Germany or around the world to see a new watch, to discover a new development and when I meet the movers and shakers of this industry. Many of them have become close friends meanwhile, so I can offer you even more distinguished insights of the worldwide acting watch industry. I do invite you to discover the world of watches with me, with us and to take advantage of our unique database that helps you to find your favorite wristwatch.

You can listen, watch, enjoy and get the right advise how to buy your desired watch …
